#50 of 81 Dash Panel turning off
Mar 01, 2010 (7:26 pm)
I had a problem with my 300C. When it reached 30,000 miles all of the dash gauges would turn off for about 3 seconds. Enough to scare me. For the next 20,000 miles I would take it back to the dealer every month, and maybe twice a month. The entire car started turning off, and I would have to put in neuteral and start it back up. As you know could not duplicate. Finally the service man said he called the extented warranty company, and they told him to check the battery. The battery was running on 275 amps, and was suppose to be at 730. The warranty company told him they had that problem before. New battery and have had no problem for 2 months now. I drive it every day.

Any luck with the electrician? My car is back at the dealer. Waiting to verify the problem. I'm wondering if the battery amp issue posted recently is our problem.

My 300c is doing the same. Did your dealer hook it up to the computer for troublehooting? Our dealer told us that they have traced the problem to the wiring harness but no a specific unit. I'd be interested to compare the code reading on yours to ours. Thanks.

Interesting. The dealer had my car for over a month and found no problems. Did they say what needed to be done with the wiring harness to fix the problem?

They can't pin it down to the exact component. It is a stored code F202. Until they can check it when it is active they won't touch it. I've been to Chrysler for relief, they told me until the dealer can pin point the problem, I'm out of luck. So, will have to wait until the dash is going wacko and bring it in. As, you know, you can't predict when it will happen or where. If you turn the ignition off, the codes go to stored and not in an active mode. They want to fix it but can't find the cause. I'll keep you posted. We're taking it on a road trip this weekend, so will see what happens.
#56 of 81 OEM Radio question
Apr 22, 2010 (5:30 am)
sort of an electrical question: on the Mopar RAK OEM radio (am/fm/6-disc/cassette) I keep reading that it has an audio-in jack, for among other things, connecting an mp3 player.
I looked at numerous pics of this head-unit and don't see any such input.
Can someone please confirm for me whether or not this is true? Tell me where this input is located?
Thanks. Thinking about purchasing a 2006 300 Limited AWD...
#57 of 81 Power outlets in 2005 300 limitied
Apr 22, 2010 (9:35 am)
I have been experiencing problems with the power outlets. Besides the normal fuses blowing, they seem to not be usable although they do light the indicators on cell phone cords, the phones do not charge. The dash around the heat/AC seems to be getting very hot when this problem occurs.
#58 of 81 EGR Valve Replacement and subsequent issues
Jun 23, 2010 (11:17 am)
FYI: I just had my EGR valve replaced at 40K miles after the "Service Engine Soon" light came on and the error code read out as the EGR valve. This is a 2005 300 Limited and about 3 minutes after I pulled away from the dealership, the "Service Engine Soon" light came back on again! I also noticed that night that the crusie control was all goofed up. It would come on (light lit in the wand) but then go off as soon as you tried to "set" it. After that it would not come back on for a few minutes. Rather than going back to the dealer, I decided to try on ald trick I learned years ago. I disconnected the battery cables and let the car sit for 20 minutes, then I hooked them back up. Two days later - no "Service Engine Soon" lighrt and the crusie is fully operational.
This is just an FYI for anyone that may have similar issues in the future.

I have an '06 300 Touring that doe the same thing. Activation of the left turn signal shuts off the left running light. Did you find a fix for it?
