In this video I have a look at a 2008 Chrysler Town and Country that came in with a misfire on cylinders number three and six. It also has a code P02308. It does not take long to chase it down and find a failed ECM. -Enjoy!

    Ive got the same vehicle 2011 town & country and it shuts down on its own and won’t even try to start someone keeps telling me its the computer but I’m not so sure

  2. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robert Zapata Jr. says:

    Thanks I needed to make sure I was right. My customer needs a PCM also

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars JD RS says:

    I would say that the PCM has two bad output mosfet transies (not tranny’s you pervs). Those are usually screwed with their backs into an aluminum heat sink.

    2009 Chrysler town and country reading that cylinder 5 open circuit out of range voltage or resistance codes p0205 & p0305

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Marian Kis says:

    You are the man keep up the great videos

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Greg Johnson says:

    Code P1495 on 97 grand voyager 3.3. Replaced LDP with no success. Pretty sure a wire issue but not confident enough on how to trace it back to the PCM or the ECM. That probe light you use seems like a useful tool in this case. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Greg

    I just want to thank you for your time and effort to share these videos with us. You have helped me several times. Merry Christmas!

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rich Jacobs says:

    Who's ever idea was to put computers in cars that was just evil

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rich Jacobs says:

    What is the most likely reason why you would not have any power to the EGR valve?

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rich Jacobs says:

    I got a 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan just like that I think 3.8 got a po404 bad EGR circuit or something I put a new EGR valve in myself took it to the shop and they told me EGR valve is not getting any power they don't know why so I said good day now what do I do? The van runs beautiful just E check light is on I think it will pass if I can get power to the EGR valve

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars miguel larios arreola says:

    you suck

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Todd Goswick says:

    Eric had a question about your Chrysler town and country with the p2308. I have exact same issue on an 09 wrangler. My question is after you replaced the pcm and before programming did it run normally or did it still have no control for #3 coil. In other words does it need a reprogram to control that 1/3 of the coil? Thanks in advance for any help you can give me. Watch you all the time, even your day in the shop videos, lol. Anyways your awesome and help me lol

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Donald Garvin says:

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars TF Shaw says:

    Where can you purchase a Chrysler PIN number for 30 dollars? 🤔 I've got lucky and had some kind people at Chrysler give me the PIN numbers, but I would love to know where you can buy them just in case. Thank you.

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars N Patrick says:

    What tool are you using to program the ECM with the correct VIN ?

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars CarsRcool says:

    Money light ! hahahaha

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Stuart PULVERMACHER says:

    He would make an awesome teacher bur you know they would'nt pay him what he's worth

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Krystal Donald says:

    I think I have a bad PCM. I drive a 2005 Chrysler Town & Country. She keeps acting like she can't breath, she shakes most of the time, and several electrical items have either stopped working or seem like they are barely working. (Same tail light bulb keeps blowing, one window goes hella slow some times, small bulbs in car blow.) No mechanic will give it to me straight unless I let them put me in a position to charge me out the ass for labor just to tell me what I already suspect.

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ciara says:

    Someone please help. 3 mechanics later and nobody can fix it. I have a 2011 chrysler town and country. Crank/no start. We have bypassed the TIPM, New battery, new throttle body. Biggest issue is when it is cold. Once you finally get it started it drives like a dream. My husband is ready to throw in the towel but it is hard to walk away when it drives so good when it starts. The red lightning bolt does come on when I try to start it but when it finally starts it goes away. Anyone know something we don't know. I know this is a huge chrysler issue.

    Did he just say "jive turkey" lol

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mark Ochman says:

    Wow! I hope I never run into a hack mechanic like that? That’s bad!

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mark Ochman says:

    You’re a genius brother 👍

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Guess Who says:

    Excellent diagnostic skills, as usual! Keep up the great work brother!

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars adelaja hackym says:

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Nicholas Andre says:

    Probably a pretty cheap fix inside the brain box. Although it probably will fail again if it failed once XD

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Shane Harrison says:

    Yes he was may he rest in peace

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robert Garcia says:

    What’s the name of that tool you used to cut into the wire at the pcm to test the wire itself?

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars mann shambles says:

    One of, if not THEE best mechs on the webs. A rock star. Dude, if I may ask your opinion on WHICH dang used mini van you'd recommend. Honda? Toyota (ick). Chrysler/Dodge, Kia? If I knew would I ask? Where the heck is South Main Auto anyway? Thanks for your vids. Stay well.

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Nelson Hernandez says:

    He does provide multiple lessons even I knew but forget to start from the basics to eliminate or track down the issue

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Fred J. says:

    Go Hannah!! She solved part of the problem!! BUT as you said Eric the O2 sensor being disconnected "Should" have shown more bad codes, no?

    @southmainautorepairllc. 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 5.7L Replaced ECM (used/reman+preprogrammed unit) and replaced SKREEM (used unit), runs and drives but alarm is constantly armed and when doors open alarm goes off, Vehicle will not unlock using door switches (will only LOCK) , when fob buttons are pressed lights flash but does not actually perform function (ie unlock/lock etc..) and SRS light on.
