Remove nev battery cable and pos. Wait for at least 10 minutes. Plug back pos terminal first. DON'T PUT IGNITION KEY ON while doing the procedure. Then insert key and turn to ON (no engine starting), press accelerator for 10 seconds and see if the light goes off. Chrysler was having some issues with this matter for a while. Many times, people will have to bring their car to the dealer to flash the PCM. Often times, that's when people changes their batteries with key on the ignition. I never understood why but....

My vehicle has a push start ignition, will the process work the same with a push start ignition?
