2005 Dodge Magnum Problems

PCM/TCM Software Updates Will 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 Will Solve Electrical/Lighting Problems

Software updates are available which may correct various electrical problems with the interior features and lighting.

Check Engine Light Due to Failed Thermostat

The thermostat may fail to close completely, causing the Check Engine Light to illuminate. This problem will prevent the engine from reaching normal operating temperature; a new thermostat should be installed.
