Exclamation Re: codes codes and more codes

Have you checked the wiring & connectors all the way,even on the backside of the engine?

Have you tried doing a 'reset' to clear any codes,and then see if they return again?

your's being a 2001, and i believe this only happens to 2001, check to see if the wiring harness going to the bottom of the alternator is hanging unusually low. it tends to rub on the drive axel and chafe. you'll probably see an eyelit that looks like it should be bolted to something holding the harness up.

wore the outer skin of the harness clean through on mine and exposed bare wires. not sure if the wires were shorting during movement or not. stripped 'em and soldered 'em and taped 'em. no problems since.

just something to consider.

done that also codes return, but I noticed that when the car is cool and not been running it starts and drives fine for 10 to 15 minutes then cuts off,i had problems in the past with the car over heating a week prior coolant disappears whether it on the cool line or the hot line in the resoivor

Question Re: codes codes and more codes

When the CPS was replaced with Mopar part,was the 'Target Magnet' also replaced?

I already asked if you had checked the wiring for the sensor(s) from END-TO-END???
