Greetings! I just bought a 2006 Chrysler Touring and it is a good running car, but the guy before me had trashed it.. I’m in the process of fixing her up now but I noticed yesterday that when I put it into drive in didn’t lock into gear even tho it did shift into Drive it wouldn’t move.. I turned the car off and turned it back on and then it was fine. It did it again today. So I got the problem codes and they are 0037 0038 and 0058. It says Heater Control Circuit High and heater control circuit low... the ground for the exhaust I noticed is not attached and is hanging down under the car so I figured that might be for those codes but would it have anything todo with the car not moving while in gear? Also the radio was not working so I changed the fuse and that seemed to fix the problem but the radio again today was off and I checked the fuse it had not blown but again the radio came back on.. I’m not too sure what to think.. any advice??

P0038, P0039 and P0058 are all HEGO errors. From your description it sounds like your 02 sensors are disconnected.

To diagnose your transmission issue, you're going to need an advanced scantool that can communicate with other modules like your TCM and BCM. A simple code reader can only read Powertrain codes.

You should check all your underhood grounds to make sure they're clean and tight. Also, have your battery load-tested.

Welcome. Agree with Carl you need a scan tool that can read Chrysler specific codes for the transmission. What engine and transmission in your car? And what mileage

Early NAG 1 boxes suffered from an oil leak and our transmissions are sensitive to low fluid levels. If you're lucky that's all you might need. Alternatively it could be a conductor plate issue - again need the codes

Sorry for the late reply guys, been one hell of a month. And haven’t had a lot time to mess with the car.. she’s a project of mine I mostly get into on the weekends.. anywho, I have a 2006 touring 3.7, and she’s got some pretty high miles.. about 195 and the guy who owned her before just really dogged her out.. mostly a lot of cosmetic things but I’ve had to put a new altenator and also a battery, and after taking out all the seats and carpets and the door panel you can tell she has had the windows left down in the rain before so I was wondering about any of the problems I’m having might be related to that.. the other day just the lock button stopped working and the passenger side window wouldn’t go up but would go down. I tried everything fuses, I even switched out the drivers side switch since I have an extra , I check all the wires and made sure everything was connected.. nothing .. well I’m out here messing with her tonight and I was In the trunk and happened to hit the ground wire on the battery and realized she was alittle loose. I tightened her up and still nothing with the window.. well I thought what the hell Ieave the ground off for awhile and then put it back on maybe it needed to reset. Came back hooked her up and wallla! Works good now..

but still the issue with the car not wanting to move in gear is puzzling .. someone told me it could be the transmission output speed sensor.But idk, I haven’t had a change to take her to the dealership yet to change the transmission fluid but was just going over other possibilities.. it’s weird that it will go into gear and move right when you start herup but then when it warmsup or maybewhen the fluid starts to circulate it completely stops going and just revs.. I started her up tonight and she was running alittle rough just barely like it was low in gas, I’m new to the mechanics end of things but I’m learning as I go so thanks for the patience and your input on things guys.

I don't have anything to add to my earlier post. But DGO asked what engine and transmission you've got, and I don't think your reply is going to enable him to help you.

I suspect that you've got a 3.5 V-6, but I don't know whether you have a 42RLE 4-speed or a NAG1 5-speed.
