Default Engine Warning Light 3rd Time - 04 GT

Opps Sorry, first post was not in the Turbo section.

Hello everyone, this is my first post and I need a little help.
My 04 GT is in the shop for the third time for the same problem, (error code P1188)Turbo Overboost. When this happens the car surges at idle and on decelleration. PCM was replaced twice. This time there supposed to find out what's causing the module to go out, we will see! Has anyone else had this problem on the 04 GT?? If so, what was the cure? The only mods to the vehicle are BTG cat back dual exhaust and a K&N drop in filter. The first two occurences happened before the mods. Hope I get it back for the Block Party. Thanks in advance for your replies.

Almost guarantee this is a vacuum (or boost depending on how you look at it) harness issue. Most likely the surge solenoid is not talking to the surge (blow off) valve. Have dealer take off harness, and check it and if that doesn't fix it replace with new.

Just for curosity, how many miles do you have on the car and what trans. do you have? Keep everyone informed on what happens as some of us might need the documentation in the future for a similar problem.

Hope they find the problem!!!

bobs turbo pt;

I have not called Chrysler direct as yet, my dealer is great and they're working with me. Yes, they gave me a car (rental) 04 Grand Prix, nice car. I should know what's going on this afternoon. Thanks for the advice and I will surely start the phone calls if needed.
