2005 Dodge Magnum Questions

I have no idea what can cause it to not heat or cool. The compressor kicks on. Thats it. Has to be some sort of switch somewhere???

The oil has been changed and is clean. There are no codes coming up. This occurs when the engine is warmed up. Sometimes the light stays on for a few seconds then goes off, only to have it come back on soon. I have taken it to the dealership and they couldn't find anything wrong with it.

2005 Dodge Magnum Recalls

On certain automatic transmissions, the cup plug that retains the park pawl anchor shaft may be improperly installed. If the shaft moves out of position, the vehicle may not be able to achieve "park" position. If this occurs and the parking brake is not applied, the vehicle may roll, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect the transmission and install a bracket to ensure the park pawl anchor shaft is retained in the proper position. This recall is expected to begin on November 28, 2005. The Chrysler recall number is E14.

The front shoulder belt adjustable loop bolt may not have been properly tightened. This could cause the shoulder belt to separate from the vehicle in the event of a crash. Dealers will tighten the turning loop bolt to the proper specification. This recall is expected to begin on July 6, 2004. The Chrysler recall number is D30.

A spot welding operation for the rear floorpan reinforcement may not have been performed during vehicle assembly. This could cause the rear seat belt anchor and/or the child seat anchors to separate in certain crash conditions, increasing the risk of injury to rear seat passengers. Dealers will inspect the rear floorpan reinforcement for missing welds and install structural rivets if necessary. The recall is expected to begin on July 6, 2004. The Chrysler recall is D21.

Where do you start when safety becomes a problem? I bought my car at the end of 05 and went with the Hemi for fun. The car has been nothing but pleasure until... Beginning this year (2011) I got in my car to pick up a kid only to find out the rear brakes were locked. If I did not have the horsepower there would have been no way I could have moved. After a trip to the dealer it was repaired. Or ...

We have an 05 Dodge Magnum and Dodge should have left this car in pieces on the assembly line, due to the fact that it is nothing but JUNK!! We have put $3000 in rear and frontend parts and that is with doing my own mechanics..so that is parts only. Dodge should have made the parts cheaper knowing they were junk. I think that Dodge should stand behind their junk because they know they made the ...
