2006 Chrysler 300 ProblemsPCM/TCM Software Updates May Address Shifting Problems
If you experience rough shift and/or shuddering during gear shifting, software updates to the powertrain control and transmission control modules (PCM and TCM) are available which may address these problems. On higher mileage vehicles, a mechanical failure may exhibit similar symptoms. Proper diagnoses should be performed before any repairs or software upgrades are attempted.
Software updates are available which may correct various electrical problems with the interior features and lighting.
There may be an intermittent three- to five-second delay between when you turn the key and when the engine actually cranks. If the Check Engine Light illuminates, the brake switch should be inspected and the PCM may need updated software.
