Russ,
I know the list that on this forum says something about the "driver" for your P1684 code, but on other Code Lists the P1684 is nothing to worry about. Even if you've never touched the battery, you can still get this code.

1684 =The battery has been disconnected within the last 50 starts.

P303 is a misfire in Cylinder #3 and yes, it could mean you need new plugs or wires.

Oh Yea, WELCOME to the forum.

Welcome to the Forum

You didn't say what year nor mile age. Probably needs plugs Champion 7440, (if you do not have a turbo),they are double platinum plugs. Gap at .040, use anti seize grease. I also used MOPAR High Performance wires (can get at dealer, may have to order). On the wires use dialectric grease.

Torque plugs to 13 ft lbs. If you have a NA you will have to remove the intake, to replace torque in this sequence 5, 3,1, 2,4 at 105 inch pounds. Don't worry about the intake gaskets unless you damage one during replacement. Good Luck

Just to make it clear 'Dad': Be SURE to replace the wires with Aftermarket, NOT "Genuine Chrysler".

The factory wires are of exceptionally low quality; in fact I would not be surprised if your plugs (even #3) are in better condition than the wires.
