Chrysler Fault Code 43: Ignition coil driver circuit open or shorted

by Bob O'Neill and Bob Lincoln

Code 43 indicates that the ignition coil driver circuit is open or shorted; it will not light the power-limited light or cause limp mode. Possible reasons include:

Poor wiring or connection - Read the page 'How to troubleshoot drivability issues'. Check the wiring and connections from the logic module to the power module. Clean and re-grease the connectors with dielectric grease.

Defective ignition coil driver transistor - Replace the power module (or SMEC).

Ignition coil failure - The coil's primary is measured across the two studs on the top of the coil. A measurement of zero ohms means the primary coil is not open. Measurements of a very high ohm reading would indicate a defective coil.
