2002 Chrysler Sebring LX 2.4L Poor Idle Quality, Hesitation, Stall VIN: 1C3EL46X92
Thank you to those who replied. Checking the basics would be my lesson this week. I checked the crankshaft sensor wiring to make sure it did not interfere with the CV axle and it was fine. Also re-checked for vacuum leaks and found none. I went on a wild goose...

1997 Dodge Grand Caravan SE 3.3L Battery/connections VIN: 2B4GP44R9V
Had some very good idea's on finding this short. When a draw as large as this comes along, heat and inductance will be your guide. What we did was to disconnect the negative batt terminal and use the test light to confirm any draw, yes there was. Next with a D...

1992 Jeep Cherokee 4.0L Stall, MIL Lamp on VIN: 1JF4T58SXN
Chrysler can throw some curves! The 4.5v on the signal wire is the NORMAL bias voltage. The code 24 was set because of a bad TPS. If we would have followed the factory test for code 24 instead of following the 4.5 bias voltage this car wouldn't have been a pro... Trouble codes: 24 (TPS Voltage high).
