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

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?

Don’t know what to tell you. I’m having the same problem. Changed out the egr valve and throttle body. The lights are still staying on. I’m lost....

The thermostat needs to be replaced it happened 2 xs in 2 years to my SRT
