Having problems with your 2001 Chrysler 300M ?
Power windows stuck, engine light blinking & ignition won't turn
\015 2003 300m, 116,000 miles. All four windows will not go down, tried replacing the fuse and that did not work. In addition my engine light is always on and recently blinking. This is a hit or miss, when it blinks the car will only go about 25 mph, then it may kick in slowly to 40 or 50mph. I have given up on driving on the highway. I Usually smell gas. They say its a "misfire".? And the key will go into the ignition, but will not turn. It usually takes a good 5 minutes to get it to turn. I now leave the key in the ignition. Anyone else having these problems or can offer advice?\015
I see several problems here. While one major problem may lead to the others by causing faults in the ECM I would be very careful how I proceeded. The best advice I can give you is take it to a dealer. They have machines that can bypass and test the ECM. Unfortunately, the ECM is rather costly and just doing replacement testing is going to be too costly. The key issue is rather interesting. If your key has a chip inside it for security I would assume the ECM is faulty. What you described about driving is the vehicle running in failsafe mode to get to a repair shop. This is a feature chrysler toyed with for a few years in some models. If the ECM faults out there is a default set of programming that kicks in so you can get it to a shop.
