Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2005 chrysler 300 v6 2.7 both my check
engine and throttle body light was on and I have
changed the throttle body and both lights are still
on since I replace the throttle body now my car will
crank up on it's own but the lights are still on. I did
the key trick and a code of 2181 appears in the
dash can someone tell me what I need to do this is
my only transportation to get to and from work.

the code is caused by your engine failing to reach a 'warm' temperature within a certain amount of time (~5 minutes). its usually caused by a bad thermostat.

Thanks for responding back. What about my other problem? Could that cause it also?
