CEL on Cirrus


Recommended Posts

Wife's Subaru was in the shop... So she drove my Cirrus for several days. This morning I took her to get the Subaru back & the CEL is on in my car. She claims it wasn't on yesterday but I know she "frigged up my car!" (just joking, car has 104K miles) Checked the gas cap 2X, it's tight. Nothing obivious wrong. I did the key thingy... the CEL blinks. I ran it 3X & got the code 123155. I'm trying to find the chart for this... www.allpar.com/fix/codes.html Russ

Internet research of the codes indicated the Evap control unit had failed which was the reason for the CEL. I bought the part at the auto store & ensued the process to get the hood open with the broken release cable. See that story: http://forum.mopar1973man.com/threads/4516-Cirrus-hood-release-broke...

AFTER getting the hood open, I proceeded to do the part replacement. Posted Image

To get to it, the intake duct needed to be removed and the cruise control freed up & I was able to wedge it on the other side of the trans dip stick. The bracket bolts to the shock tower with 1 bolt... but boy what a "son-of-a-female-dog" to get to. At the top of the frame is one of the studs from the Cruise Control which gouged the crap out of my arm before I fould a piece of vacume tubing to cover them with. That's the little jem under the brake lines.

The unit has a rubber block which slips onto a part of the bracket (slot indicated in the photo) but I could not get them appart down in the hole. The bracket just twists on the single bolt.

I removed the bracket pushed the unit onto the bracket, pushed the 2 hoses (single block so hard to confuse them) back on & reinstalled the bracket. I didn't connect the wire plug... It came off easy enough & gave room needed to work the mounting bolt. The dang plug would not go on. I tried every which way... came back today & got it on. Different angle, different position.

Put the rest of the parts back that I'd removed to get access... Put the hood down, time for a break. This has been a real challenge with a sore back.

OK, I had the Cirrus in a front end & brake shop (will post separately). After telling me that they "Didn't do anything other than brakes & front ends" I guess they were slow & offered to put a scanner on the Cirrus & see what it needed to shut off the CEL. I told them I'd replaced the part... it was on the passenger's seat... they read the codes, said I had done the right part, reset the CEL and didn't charge me additional!CEL is out, so far. I've made an appointment for the state inspection.
