How To Deal with ABS and Trac lights on Autostick Cluster Swap

This is the way to get rid of your ABS and Trac Lights when you swap clusters. It may work for Air Bag lights on 300 clusters, but I can't confirm that. It is pretty much telling the cluster that it is brand new, and it will only respond to what modules are actually in your car. Obviously these are instructions for a DRBIII scan tool, but you may need to print them off and tell the dealer they can do it, because they probably never do. I know this works as I had it performed on my cluster from a 2000 Intrepid that had ABS and Brake lights on that I put in my 98. Labour time should only be around 10-15 min.

note: Step 6 or 7 (can't remember which) takes a while due to the DRBIII determining what Controller you have, it was 1-2 min in my case, just so you don't think it's hung up or something. Follow all on screen instructions when prompted.

1. Connect the DRBIII to the vehicle diagnostic connector, using cable CH7000.
2. Turn the ignition key to the ON position (engine off).
3. From the DRBIII Main Menu, select # 1 - DRBIII Standalone
4. Select # 1 - 1998 - 2005 Diagnostics
5. Select # 1 - All
6. Select # 3 - Body Interior
7. Select # 2 - Electro/Mech Cluster (MIC)
8. Select # 9 - Misc.
9. Select # 1 - New Instrument Cluster
10. Erase fault codes using the DRBIII. (I had "no ABS module" fault of course....)
11. Disconnect the DRBIII from the vehicle.

Enjoy no lights!

A sympathetic dealer should have no problem doing it - for the door rate.

Thanks for tracking this down.

Is the DRB tool they scan your car with for free at Auto Zone the same tool that is mentioned to do this procedure?

No, that's an OBDII code reader. You need the proprietary chrysler DRBIII.
