#184 of 621 Accelerator Pedal Sticking
Jan 21, 2005 (1:17 pm)
2001 Chrysler 300M w/ 78,000 miles
Here's the problem; this has shown up mainly since the weather has gotten colder. When cold starting and attempting to back out of a parking space, when the car is placed in reverse the accelerator pedal cannot be depressed. If its put back in Park and the pedal => forced <= down, it will free up and you can return to reverse and drive/back normally. This has happened a few times now. I've searched TSBs and don't find anything similar. Anyone else experience this or know what the problem might be. It will go to the dealer, but would like to be informed.

Never heard of your issue in 6 years on this board. Doesn't sound like just a lube problem. Must be something really messed up in there. Let us know what the resolution to the problem is.

You've got ice forming in the line that holds the accelerator cable. With the engine off, squirt some WD40 in it from the engine end and work the accelerator several times. Do it after you've driven the car for a little while, but after the engine has cooled down a little bit and before the cable has time to freeze again.
#187 of 621 Autostick problem
Jan 26, 2005 (2:01 pm)
I have a 2000 300M, the shift lever seems to be off a little to the right so that the Autostick downshift move to the left travels very slightly. It works, but I wondered if anyone has experienced anything like this before. Dealer or tire shops haven't mentioned anything out of line during alignments or other checkups.

My 2000 service manual says check fuse #5, check PDC (power distribution center) fuse "M", on/off relay, loose-bent-corroded wires/connectors, motor,stripped gears in motor,seized motor bearings, BCM (Body Control Module) bad.
Nothing complicated, just have to follow the troubleshooting tips.
PDC fuse is under the hood on the left side in the PDC (which has a rectangular top). It is a 40 amp fuse.
Manuals help!!!!! Good Luck.

I just had my intermittent wiper control not working correctly so they changed a module in it for a couple of hundred, covered by an extended warranty. I will post the part tomorrow, I have the number at work. Maybe your module has failed. By the way the change for me did not completely solve the problem. It is a little better but not the way it normally was. I'll take it back for the next service and see if anything else would be worth trying. I just figured the rotating control on the turn stalk had worn out after 6+ years, but they didn't try to change that. What do I know?
