So I tried it this time with no luck. Treat those asking for help with respect, and answer without bias toward them, their situation, or their knowledge or lack thereof about the repair issues. Turn to lock left then right, turn off engine and restart and the light goes out except as follows; This is exactly the problem. Does anybody know if the warning lights which only come on after starting the vehicle and driving a short distance will store codes anywhere even though the warning lights did not come on this last time I drove it? I had a stealer dealer use their diagnostic tool to verify what I had already learned from Advanced Auto the code was indeed C1219-Steering Angle Sensor A. Take pictures, crawl under the car, look under the hood. Had power steering line changed.
Luckily, xrays revealed none were broken, but I am left with an expensive hospital bill. Once they were replaced the lights went out. Good that you now have the solution. The front wheel bearings were loud. I do not have a warranty on the van so anything is all out of pocket. This van is loud and runs behind, kind of stutters.
Ensure that the ignition is on, with the scan tool, erase all Diagnostic Trouble Codes from All modules. Then took it back again, no engine light on, then they can't diagnose any issues. I have also tried starting the van, turning the wheel all the way to the left then all the way to the right, shuting it off and restarting. There are no warnings, strange sounds or any indicator that it is about to shut off. So, from that Thread: - there could be a simple fix for the lights flashing Post 11 and 55. I recently got rear brake pads and rotors for an Accura from the local Chrysler Dealership and saved a bundle using their discounted price. After testing battery and replacing spark plugs, the problem continued to get worse.
The problem is beginning to sound more and more like the clock spring. First it started with the vehicle turning itself off and did start back. Most repairs have already been covered multiple times somewhere in great depth that will satisfy your needs. I hope that this helps someone in the future. They do seem to come on over bumps I noticed. Light stays out until I forget and use the signal! I worry about it happening to my family. Now tonight I am driving and going down a straight road and the lights all came on along with the ding.
Also respect those that take the time to answer questions and remember that many are professional mechanics, who normally get paid very well to diagnose automotive repairs. I plan to have my vehicle towed by aaa to scott robinson Chrysler, Dodge in torrance and would request coverage of my rental vehicle for one week. I can usually pull off to the side of the road without any power steering or power brakes. Besides, if they do find anything tomorrow, maybe it could help you, DogDude. So I went to a second dealership, advisor was a little nicer but again was told to bring back Tuesday. I have taken it so many times to the dealership for this reason for the engine shutting it self off, they would brush it off it's the battery, got new battery then it happen again.
To all whom have read this post and are looking for the answer, it was indeed the clock-spring. I have a mechanic buddy that checked the code and it was the clockspring. As soon as the signal return clicks back the light comes on exactly like Uncle Rob's. Took it back and the dealer said that they had not recalibrated the sensor. This is the only problem I have had with this car. The dealer kept the vehicle for approximately 30 days, but was unable to duplicate the failure.
I was able to over correct with the steering and regain control. The drive test requires a 90? Both times, she was able to turn on the hazard light to alert any vehicles behind her. It is a small wire harness running to each wheel. Left turn without turn indicator doesn't seem to turn light on. The car just shuts off--the power steering is gone, I can't accelerate or keep moving at constant speed. Good thing you had the extended warranty. I also noticed today that my van differs from the original poster in that my brake light is not on.
Hopefully it's not a broken tone ring or something more annoying. If my little girls were in the car and this happened at a intersection, we would have been thrown into ongoing traffic seriously injured if not killed!! If this should occur, turn the steering wheel completely to the left and then to the right. Perform several anti-lock braking stops. You have the same symptoms as my magnum had. I didn't want to pull it out of the garage, so I just started the engine long enough to pull the tires as far to the left as possible, then shut the engine off and let go of the steering wheel, that way I could get the best possible look behind the front driver's wheel. That was several hundred miles ago. Both are being done under warranty at 128k miles.
Jeepman, I can not access you thread. There were no lights on when I bought it and I scanned it before I bought it and there was nothing. I took it to the dealer the next day I have 6000 miles on my Jeep and they said that the clock spring needed to be replaced because it was failing. Attempt to investigate the repair issue on your own. I have not tested the rears because I assumed that if the front left was the only one being engaged it would have the problem. Then it may start randomly and run for a few weeks or couple of months and do same thing again.
