Update: My garage has now found the following fault codes:

1136 - swirl flap actuator malfunction
1033 - boost pressure control
2035 - glow plug

They also found that Fuse 5 had blown: Headlight washer (20 amp). Rather oddly, this had also blown when my car broke down 3 weeks ago and they changed fuses 5 and 15 to get the car going again.

They changed Fuse 5 again and now the only fault code showing is 1136 (can't understand why changing Fuse 5 would clear 1033 and 2035, that's a bit of a mystery).

So I am looking for any help and advice, please, on how to fix code 1136. I have been reading up up about the resistor trick or the swirl emulator from the custom shop. Is that likely to be the best first step?

I really like my car, only had it a few weeks, so hope I can get this sorted and drive it with a bit more confidence.

Wishing to get back on the road for Christmas!!!

I've previously found a pdf online which claims to be a list of Chrysler/Jeep error codes, and it disagrees with your code descriptions. Code 1136 isn't on the list, 1033 is "ISA Circs" (what on earth is that?) and 2035 is "Exhaust Gas Temp Sens Circ Low Bank2 Sens2". So I think there's some confusion over the codes being read and their interpretation? Most glow plug errors are in the P06nn range, for example.

That said, if the problem is the swirl, I can highly recommend the custom shop's resistor mod and it's incredibly easy to fit. My first 300C sailed through an MOT with it fitted and never reported any codes.

Have you used the windscreen washers whilst the headlights were on since fuse 5 was last replaced (ie: has the headlamp washer pump run)? If so, then it's possible that a fault on that pump is blowing the fuse. If not, I wonder if you have a wiring loom fault/short that caused the fuse to blow and is also causing the random codes?

Thanks talldave, really appreciate your ideas and suggestions.

I haven't been able to query the code numbers with the garage yet but think that the acual error descriptions they provided (mentioned above) are probably correct.

Spoke to Paul at the Custom shop this afternoon, what a helpful chap! We both concluded that the best way to proceed is to add the swirl motor emulator so I have ordered one and hopefully I will be able to fit it myself using the pictures he has sent me.

Fingers crossed! I have been reading up about lots of owners having similar probs and while many have fixed with the emulator, scary to hear of other stories costing loads of money without the problem always being fixed.

Re.Fuse 5, Paul at the Custom shop has again been helpful. Conclusion is the handbook is not correct and Fuse 5 controls other things too. Now researching a bit more to see if I can track it down. I think that as I also had Fuse 15 blow 3 weeks ago causing the car to cut out comletely, a wiring short sounds a good suggestion but am not sure where to look exactly.

Thanks again for your help, hope to get the car running again soon.

Wiring shorts a common area or look is in the (uk) passenger side in the engine bay, the sheaved cables by the front strut get worn with chaffing.

Hi AB77

Did you get your car sorted?
I am having similar problems (although starting fine).
Please see my post.

Hi feichter,

Sorry to hear of your Chrysler problems.

I have read through your post and am not sure if they are the same symptoms as mine. I looked hard for chaffing cables and as far as I could see they looked ok, but there are quite a few and I wasn't entirely entirely sure I was looking exactly in the right place. As suggested I concentrated around the rear of the engine bay on the passenger side (UK). I also had a previous problem a few weeks before when the car cut out completely while driving and wouldn't restart. Red lightning flash light was on. Car would turn but would not fire up. Had to get the car towed home. Turned out to be a blown fuse (no. 15 in the engine bay fuse box). Because of that I had also been looking for potential chaffed cables but couldn't find any. Also (by coincidence???) the battery failed almost at the same time (it was apparently 6 years old) so wondered if the battery failure had somehow blown fuse 15, but I think most have suggested that was unlikely.

My car is now running fine. The diagnosis from the garage was a possible swirl motor problem but they said it could be a couple of hours labour just to investigate and take various things apart. I decided to take the car back and do a bit of research myself first (mainly on this forum) and eventually decided that for the sake of £40 it was worth trying the swirl motor emulator from the Custom Shop first. Luckily that did the trick for me and it was easy to fit myself. The red lightning flash went out straight away and the yellow engine light went out after a couple of short journeys and hasn't come back on since. The car seems to be running fine now. Have done 200-300 miles since adding the swirl motor emulator so fingers crossed everything is ok now.

Hope this is of some interest.

Thank you SO much AB77. I think I will invest in an emulator too.
Not sure if you read my update from this morning, but all lights are out now (I turned them off with torquepro) and did a few miles with parking up and turning the engine off and on. So all good for now. I now only get a ping on starting which I know from the EVIC is the glowplug. It's going in tomorrow morning to get replaced. So, let's wait and see...

Fingers crossed it will get sorted tomorrow, will watch for your post update with interest.

I only bought my 300C in October, knowing that there would be a few issues and challenges along the way, so am learning all the time mainly thanks to this excellent forum. It's incredibly useful to share all this information with other owners.

It's becoming quite a fun hobby trying to understand and fix things on the car when they go wrong!

Next thing for me is to try and fix the squeaky front nearside suspension, which I think is most likely the upper control arm (wishbone), having already just replaced the anti roll bar bushes. Trying to decide if I am brave enough to tackle that myself though!
