  1. Fuel Pump Plastic Housing needs to be recalled. Report it if you have had it happen.

    Charger Problems/Assistance
    You all will note that the "DodgeCares" NEVER responds or comments on those issues that genuinely involve safety of the vehicle - like the leaking gas tanks. I guess having the manufacturer get into the position where it can be shown they were aware of a safety issue, yet did nothing could be...
  2. SafeLite auto glass repair

    General Charger Discussion
    I second that. Premium difference between $500 and $0 - for comprehensive - is around $20 for six months for me. That's glass, damage while parked, and deer or other wildlife meeting their demise and making a mess of your car in the process.
  3. Charger wont shift outts first gear

    SRT Engineering Q&A Area
    The reason I am asking you to check these items is that it's possible that replacing the alternator didn't fix the low voltage issue, high battery impedance (resistance) can cause the DC to be noisy (electrically), and an open diode in the alternator (it happens sometimes that you get a...
  4. Charger wont shift outts first gear

    SRT Engineering Q&A Area
    What about the questions I asked in my prior post? Battery voltage and and noise (AC) while running? You could still have an issue - either new alternator, battery, or even the PCM as that is what actually provides the voltage regulation.
  5. Charger wont shift outts first gear

    SRT Engineering Q&A Area
    As GertFrobe said, we need a little more info. You changed the alternator, why? How's the battery? What voltage do you see across the terminals while the car is running? How much noise do you see across the terminals while the car is running. That's measured by putting the multimeter in AC mode...
  6. Curious

    General Charger Discussion
    Based on driving one that has the 8 speed, there's a level of integration between the TCM and PCM that would also need to be addressed. The PCM seems to know what to do in response to the shift points... Engine RPM down, etc.
  7. What can be done to prevent rust?

    Exterior Discussion/Modifications
    Can you ask them whether they recycle their water and if they do, how they get the dissolved salt out of the water?
  8. No contacts or recent calls

    Audio - Alarms - Navigation - Electronics
    Find a friend with an older iPhone - something from the timeframe that the car was built. See if that works. Try your phone in another car AT the dealer. If it works there, explain that they have broken the radio after their update... Not your phone since it works in other cars, and please fix...
  9. Trunk won't close! Opens immediately

    Charger Problems/Assistance
    Don't do that. Either a jump start box, or another car positioned in front so you can use jumper cables connected to the front of the car. Also, just in case the logic gets totally scrambled, hook a dog leash or something similar to the emergency release handle in the trunk and thread it through...
  10. Trunk won't close! Opens immediately

    Charger Problems/Assistance
    If you have stood outside the car once with a good fob, and either push lock on the fob, or the button on the door, the car no longer cares if it senses a different fob in the car. Toss the fob in the car that you last locked or unlocked the car with, and close the door, it unlocks and honks the...
  11. Trunk won't close! Opens immediately

    Charger Problems/Assistance
    Try leaving the fob outside the car some distance away. Then get in the car and try starting it. Since you said you only got one, it maybe be that the missing one is in the trunk or buried in the back seat somewhere. Prove it's electrical and not a latch thing. Disconnect the vehicle battery and...
  12. What can be done to prevent rust?

    Exterior Discussion/Modifications
    I'm in NC. I got rid of the cars I brought with me shortly after I moved here from NY. Salt on roads up north is really hard on cars. Here, as long as you're not on the beach and driving through salt water, cars go a long time without alot of rust. One thing I will caution you about that many...
  13. OBD 2 Port

    Dodge Charger News
    Is it a Calamp, and looks like the box above? Or is it something else? If you default it (Calamps work differently than the random "put a SIM in it type devices", so not likely usable) having a tracker you control is a good thing.
  14. OBD 2 Port

    Dodge Charger News
    The picture I posted is of a GPS tracker. It could be something like that if the vehicle was a rental previously, or for other reasons. Who knows what else it could be. You probably should identify where the wires go.
  15. OBD 2 Port

    Dodge Charger News
    Where do the wires go? likely something using the OBD port as an easy source of power. What year and model of car do you have? New? Used? Maybe they lead to something that looks like this:
  16. 2018 dodge charger ignition switch removal

    General Charger Discussion
    One might ask why you want to, but.... Disconnect the negative battery cable. Remove the instrument cluster bezel (2) See: Body and Frame\Interior Moulding / Trim\Dashboard / Instrument Panel\Service and Repair\Instrument Cluster Bezel - Removal (Refer to 23 - Body/Instrument Panel/BEZEL...
  17. Power outlets not working

    Interior Discussion/Modifications (2011 +)
    Did you check both Front and Trunk power dist? Power outlets are fed from trunk.
  18. MSD ignition Coil

    Performance Discussion/Modifications
    So... This is from the technical side... Since most modern vehicles don't have distributors, and you have COP, you would need six or eight of them and then use the input to the COP to trigger them - along with fooling the PCM to think there's still a coil attached. I suspect that the coil on...

    Charger Problems/Assistance (2011 +)
    I'm not a pickup truck type person... But, we actually drove back past the dealer / Enterprise twice to go to the two haunted trails over the weekend - FD Friday night, PA Saturday night - so I put a few hundred miles on it. That truck does accelerate well, and is quiet. Also, I put towels in...

    Charger Problems/Assistance (2011 +)
    I think that actually proves that the "DodgeCares" is really a bot. As far as the radiator replacement and U60 flash... That actually went well. They called me Monday afternoon to come get it. Radiator replaced, coolant somewhat above fill line - rather than below the low line - and after...
