Dealer fixed recall on airbag now radio does not work. Van is 2008 Dodge 2500. Dealer checked radio for power and radio has power but does not turn on. Normally they would have to enter a code but they say 2008 sprinters do not require code. They say it is not their fault but it quit working in their shop while their service tec was working on it.
I have a problema to start engine sometimes mornings and had check engine light
code 299 said turbo under boost . Some sensor shutting off turbo ?
It stays on while driving. Nothing seems to be wrong. It drives fine and no other symbols come on.
I have a 2008 Dodge sprinter 2500 ext. 38,000 miles . I need a sprinter specialist to answer this. A year ago I

went to start it and starter did not engage, I was stuck in a parking lot and was not going to leave it there.

When I parked all was well with no warning lights at all. I am mechanicly inclined and do most of all my work on

all my vehicles but I am stumped. I started troubleshooting and found that if I remove the #5 ETC control unit fuse under my driver seat it would start but be in first gear limp mode regardless of what position the shifter was in, even in park.

I would then replace the fuse and place the shifter in drive and would get normal shifting pattern but no other

transmission modes ie park/revese/neutral.... All three lights stay on for ABS ESP and Traction control lights are

on all the time. Seems like it is stuck in low gear all the time except when in drive. Been using the van without

reverse the past year, Trainy works great in drive. A;ways have to use emergency brake when parked because it never

actually goes into park although the shifter does and the P shows.

So currently I have the emergency brke on , I remove the fuse and start her up . Replace the fuse and put her in drive and off I go..... It runs and shifts great... but no reverse and the idiot lights stay on...

Help... Please

Thanks

When turning the key in the ignition, the engine won't fire sometimes. it is turning over but intermittently the engine will fire. We thought this be caused from the engine being cold but this issue happens in the middle of the day too, after the vehicle has been running for a few hours. However, if the key is turned over and brought back to the off position, then immediately turned over a second time, the engine then turns over and the vehicle starts. What would cause this issue?

Thank you in advance.
