Chrysler, an American auto manufacturer, was founded in 1925. Despite its rich tradition, Chrysler's vehicles are not exempt from mechanical problems. You can safeguard against potential issues by utilizing diagnostic trouble codes.
In order to obtain a diagnostic trouble code, you need to connect a car code reader to the diagnostic link connector (DLC) on the steering column. Once you turn on your vehicle's ignition, the car code reader will list all detected problems.
For Chrysler vehicles, a code P1684 represents a battery disconnected within last 50 starts. Although the code signifies a battery-related issue, diagnostic codes do not tell you how to proceed with repairs. It is the job of a trained professional to further diagnose and repair the problem.
The most common reason for this detected trouble code is a new -- or recently reinstalled -- battery. If you have not replaced your Chrysler's battery, code 1684 may indicate that your battery is running low on power. In this case, proceed by replacing the vehicle's battery.
