Hi all. Thanks for taking the time to read my post. I have gone through a ton of forum posts on transmission issues and haven’t seem to find the one that matches my current issues. I have a 2015 Chrysler 200S AWD V6 3.6L with the 9 speed and paddle shifters. Also have the knob style shifter. Really no issues until now.
The other day I was driving around town stopping at different locations for random errands. When I went to leave one store I started my car and got a ton of errors immediately flashing on the screen (service transmission, service parking brake, performance shifting unavailable…) and had a CEL and the P warning lit up. When I tried to shift the knob wouldn’t turn or shift out of park and when it would move it jumped to S mode but even there it wouldn’t move. Tried restarting, letting it sit and disconnecting the battery but still the same issue. I let it sit for about 30-40mins and tried again this time it would shift into fear fine. CEL was still on. Got it home and shut the car off and started it again and the same issue was there with all the warnings. Ran my little scanner and got a code from ECU2 of P0810 clutch position sensor.
I let it sit for a day and today went out and it started and shifted into gear fine. Drove it around for about 2 hours with no issues then when I got home I shut it down for about 10 mins and when I started it was the same issue. Let it sit for about 3 hours and again it shifted into gear.
Obviously something is not right, but wanted to see if anyone on here had the same or similar issues and what they did to resolve it.
Thanks again for the help!

Welcome to the forums. This car just might need module updates. Some of these may have already been done.
I looked up the P0810 fault code. It does not apply to this car. It would only be for cars with manual transaxles.
The PCM and TCM may be covered under a warranty. Ask for all module updates. It may drive like a different car when completed.

For the shifter (ESM):

For the parking brake (EPB):

For the HVAC:

For the PCM:

For the TCM:
Also perform a Quicklearn and PROXI:

For the AWD (DTCM and PTU):

For the radio:

One thing that can cause you numerous error codes on the 2015~ Chrysler 200 cars is an original OEM battery or OEM replacement... They are DOGS... The numerous microcontrollers (computers) demand a stable 12v (actually higher) power supply... These batteries can not deliver this and even a small glitch from the battery can confuse the electronics... If you haven't replaced the original OEM battery you should...

Thank you 200_S_AWD and Daves200s. I took my car to a friend's shop to look at it and referenced this thread and after scanning the car it does have an original battery which is about half the power that the car should have and it was causing inconsistent voltage which was causing different computer modules to randomly shut off and on and got out of whack. Seems like the fix is a properly sized battery and re-programming the modules so that everything is back in sync. Thanks for the words of wisdom. I will reply once the car issues are resolved and provide a full detail on what was fixed and how well it worked for anyone else who is seeing the same issues with their 200!

From the link:
"This code is applicable to vehicles with manual transmissions only."

Read more at: P0810 Clutch Position Control Error

If the OP does in fact have a fault code of P0810, I would blame the generic OBD2 code reader or a typo.
This P0810 fault code does not show up as a possibility in the service manual list of possible fault codes.

Update on this. Got the car back after putting in a new battery (properly sized) and had all the modules re-synced. Car drove fine for two days and then today the same thing happened. Tried restarting a ton of times and disconnecting the battery for 15 minutes, but that did not seem to work. Was able to ground the positive and negative cables from the battery (after disconnected) and left on for about 2-3 mins. Connected it back up to the battery and it was able to shift out of park enough to drive it to the shop again. CEL back on I’m guessing the same P0810 code but I didn’t have my scanner. I do believe it could be a generic code related to something else. When it was at the shop the CEL had turned off itself so hopefully with it still being on there can be some more info.

The CEL can extinguish when the code is no longer 'active', but the code and the related 'freezeframe' data will still be retained in memory for the tech.
By 'resynched', do you mean PROXI or did they perform the ESM update per the bulletin?
Again, a P0810 is not possible for this car. It ls not listed in the service manual section of possible fault codes. The list of valid ESM codes:

  • P0607-00-ECU INTERNAL PERFORMANCE
  • P0705-00-TRANSMISSION RANGE SENSOR 1 CIRCUIT PRNDL INPUT
  • P0814-00-TRANSMISSION RANGE DISPLAY CIRCUIT
  • P0919-00-GEAR SHIFT POSITION CONTROL ERROR
  • P0928-00-BTSI CONTROL
  • P1C8B-16-BATTERY VOLTAGE - CIRCUIT VOLTAGE BELOW THRESHOLD
  • P1C8B-17-BATTERY VOLTAGE - CIRCUIT VOLTAGE ABOVE THRESHOLD
  • U0002-88-CAN C BUS OFF PERFORMANCE
  • U0074-00-DEDICATED POWERTRAIN (DPT) CAN BUS OFF
  • U0100-00-LOST COMMUNICATION WITH ECM/PCM
  • U0101-08-LOST COMMUNICATION WITH TCM BUS SIGNAL - MESSAGE FAILURES
  • U0140-08-LOST COMMUNICATION WITH BODY CONTROL MODULEBUS SIGNAL - MESSAGE FAILURES
  • U0402-00-IMPLAUSIBLE DATA RECEIVED FROM TCM
  • U1175-00-LOST IGNITION STATUS MESSAGE
  • U11C3-00-ESM LOST COMMUNICATION WITH TCM ON DPT CAN
  • U145D-00-IMPLAUSIBLE DATA RECEIVED FROM TCM ON DPT

The ESM may not be OBD2 (non-emissions), so your reader may be telling us a fib.
The dealer may be the only shop that can perform this TSB:
