2013 Chrysler 300 QuestionsRefine by vehicle
I was told I didn't drive it enough and that made some sense and even with driving more, the battery went dead. The car does not have any recalls for this.
My car, a 2013 Chrysler 300 S (Glacier) with a 3.6L engine stays in AWD all the time and does not shift into RWD. I took it to the dealer, they said there were no codes found, except old one ESP. They said it meant nothing. Next day, I took the car to a local hotel’s heated garage and drove in circles about 1 mile on dry concrete at low speed, total time 40 min with breaks. The car still stayed in AWD. Car’s thermometer reading for ambient temp was 14* F all day long. The temp in the hotel garage was approximately 38*F.
I took the car back to the dealer. This time they updated BCM TEMP, created star case # XXX and kept the car in their shop overnight. They replaced temp sensor. Temp reading became 65*F. The dealer’s mechanic was driving the car in the shop but the car stayed in AWD. He wrote to Chrysler adviser that he noticed that when he put the car in neutral it changes to RWD but as soon as it put in drive it instantly changes to AWD. He was advised to REPLACE DTCM. Below is what was done:
Flash software for AMP, LBSS (?), BCM, PCM (I believe he meant DTCM).
On the service report it stated that now “AWD is working correctly. *Note that AWD will be active if outside temp is below 40* F (!!!!???), wipers are on or humidity is high (more then 20%), ESP off, and if the vehicle is in sport mode.” But when I came to get the car the problem was not fixed. The car started in RWD but the moment the mechanic began driving slowly the car jumped to AWD and started doing exactly the same as before: in neutral it changes to RWD but as soon as it was put in drive it instantly changes to AWD. The mechanic said that it is because of high humidity in the shop. I had to take the car home, it was New Year’s Eve but the service manager agreed that I could bring it back.
I am afraid that I will have to wait until spring, when the temperature is above 40*F, to verify that the car is shifting out of AWD and into RWD. Also, my manufacture’s warranty expires in March. Please advise me, if the highway is clear and dry but the temperature is about 30* F – should it be in AWD? (I have read the Owner’s Manuel.)
had to pull the fuse to stop the wipers don't matter what speed I put the wipers on it stay on the low speed. The window sprayer does not work either.
hi. my car takes off for moments ( during driving) and wizard " battery saving mode" appears at the monitor but immediately engine begins operation and wizard removes.
radiator fan dose not operate until 108*c and off at 1048
Brand new car pulled into a brushless carwash and the word "clean" appeared on dashboard, went out after a bit and then later in the day it reappeared again for a short while. Does it have something to do with the car wash and the clearance under neath?
The remote start beeps but the car won't start
Also won't start when I'm in the car
had to push car and went to put car in neutral and I cant unless the car is running. Their has to be a way to shift car in neutral while car is turned off
