Q: 2013 Dodge Charger Thermostat P0128

asked by on November 23, 2017

I have a 2013 Dodge Charger w/MIL showing code P0128, P0128, P0128. I put in a new thermostat but the MIL is still on? Why?

My car has 87000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

You will need to have the engine scanned and compare when engine is cold the engine coolant sensor and the ambient air temperature sensor to see if they read within 5 % of each other and the engine started and the engine coolant warms up with in 8 minutes to 180 degrees. If the inlet ambient air temperature is not accurate then replace sensor.

09 GMC Acadia slt2 low oil pressure light shut off [engine](/topics-engine-gmc/) display came off and I checked the oil and it was fine started it back up and the low oil pressure display went away.is it okay to drive

I have been having with my Jeep not starting. A friend tried to jump start it but nothing would happen. The dome light worked however the horn did not. Tried a different vehicle and jumper cables and the Jeep cranked. Ran fine the rest of the day and the next day. This morning my Jeep started fine. I drove to the gas station, came back out and it would not start. Had the same issues trying to jump start it. Napa Auto Parts walked over and tested the battery which read 12.6 volts, the Napa guy was able to start my Jeep with a jumper box. He said the alternator was good too. When leaving to drive my Jeep home, several lights in the dash were flashing, the radio would not work and the speedometer would not work. Got home and let the my Jeep run idle for 20 minutes, then it just died. The Jeep set for several hours while I was at work. I got home and tested the battery with a multimeter and it read 12.6 volts. Tried starting it and it would not do anything. Four hours later, I wanted to go outside to see if my headlights were working turned them on and they were. I thought let me try and start it. The Jeep started right up with no issue. Could this be a bad battery even though it is showing 12.6 volts, the Napa guy did say the CCA were low but the battery was good. Would a faulty crankshaft cause issue that would mimic a bad battery, alternator or starter? I'm at a loss and don't want to waste money buying a battery if it is something else.
