P2302 ignition coil #1 secondary circuit, insufficient ionization

Set condition: if the PCM detects that the secondary ignition burn time is incorrect or not present, and error is detected.

Possible causes:
spark plug
ignition wire
ignition coil

Everyplace I looked it had the same causes for that code. A good shop will have a diagnostic tool that they can plug in as drive and give the results of tests that run and things that it monitors while you drive. Try and find a shop/dealer that has that diagnostic tool.

Make sure your coil and sensors are OEM MOPAR

Your computer makes a measurement across the coil and that measurement is supposed to fall in a small window. I don't remember the measurement nor the window of what it's supposed to be, but I do know that non-OEM coils tend to fall outside the parameters set on your ECM.

I purchased an American-made coil from Napa and it's working very well thus far!

It was the Missus dream car that quickly killed the dream! How? Within 5 years and 40,000 miles replaced: Turbo (warranty), A/C system (warranty), 3 engine mounts (warranty), Trans. Solenoid Pack (warranty), Key Chip Skim (warranty), Spark Plugs & Wires the dealership wanted $241 to put in when they were owed to us because of the carbon-arcing problem w/original factory plugs (Champion Plugs, Really? On something other than a lawnmower?!? Now running Bosch wires and new Bosch Iridium +4 plugs).

Now it's paid off, the warranty has expired and its care is all on me! Please help if/when you can and I'll do the same!
