#221 of 230 PROBLEMS!!!!!!
Dec 24, 2010 (1:19 pm)
About two weeks ago, I noticed that my car had a problem starting, as if the battery was dying. I also noticed that my turn signals did not work. This confused me because my harzards worked. When my car did not start for two consecutive mornings, I took it to my mechanice. He tested my battery and alternator and said they were fine. He said that there might be an electrical malfuction and so he dissconnected my radio and power door locks. He said that should keep my car from dying. With that done, it still dies. I had to get a boost this morning and again after work. Do anyone know what the problem is?

Turn signals and hazard lights are intentionally on separate circuits. Your turn signals not working could be as simple as a bad flasher on the fuse panel.
The draining of the battery should be checked with a meter while the engine is off to see if there's anything "running" that shouldn't be.

usually it's a bad alternator, but it could be the wiring between the alternator and the battery

#227 of 230 Dodge Magnum stalling
Oct 25, 2011 (4:55 pm)
I bought my 2005 Dodge Magnum in '05 with only 400 miles on it. I have had only 1 issue and that was a simple replacement of the headlight switch ($49) due to interior lights flashing and cutting out. Everything else has been perfect until 1 week ago when my car began to randomly stall. It seems to happen at lower speeds and will run fine for a couple days before symptoms return. I have had error codes P0335 (cranshaft sensor) and P061c (electronic throttle control 2nd RPM). I have seen some similar symptoms in this forum but everyone seems to receive different remedies from their dealer (and they don't seem to resolve the problem). I don't want to get into the game of having my dealer troubleshooting and replacing good parts. Has anyone had this problem and truly found a repair. Please help me if you have.

You do realize that the Dodge Magnum is essentially a Dodge-bodied Mercedes E class, right?

Our 05 Magnum started doing this about a year ago. After some research, we found it was the gas tank - if we filled the tank, it would stall at stops or low speeds. If we open the cap and relieve the pressure a few times or just don't fill it completely, it is ok; haven't had the problem since doing that. Who knows why it started doing it at all after a few years tho...

Any advice with this post is greatly appreciated. I own a 2006 Dodge Magnum SXT, and I have changed every oxygen sensor on it. However, the check engine light still remains on, but that is not my primary concern. About a week ago, my car was hesitating to start, so, I had the battery tested and it needed to be replaced. I did that, but the other problem that really concerns me is that they have a light on the dashboard of an electric bolt, and it is flashing at all times. I read that means that your vehicle needs servicing immediately. My problem is that I have fixed many things myself on the car because people just try to rip you off, but I am clueless as to where to even start with this. I am also getting terrible fuel usage, and my car seems to not accelerate any faster then 75 mph. Could this possibly be the catalytic converter? The reason I ask that is because it has been mentioned to me before. Once again any advice is much appreciated.
