A plugged AC evaporator drain tube can cause a water leak inside the car; usually near the front passenger's feet.

Sensor failure inside the distributor can cause intermittent stalling or a failure to start. In addition, the wires to the distributor are susceptible to internal damage, which can cause the same symptoms.

Just the dash lights went out about a month ago.

Some vehicles may develop a musty odor coming from the HVAC system, Dodge has issued a cleaner/disinfectant and a coating for the evaporator designed to inhibit bacterial growth.

3.0L V6 (coupe)
Erroneous Check Engine Light illumination for intermittent misfires can be solved with a software update to the powertrain control module (PCM).

Sedan and Convertible
A click heard when turning the steering wheel may be solved by aligning the steering column or installing revised steering column parts as necessary. Installing the revised parts will require removal of the steering column from the vehicle.

A rattle from the rear of the vehicle may indicate that the rear shock absorbers are defective. Updated shocks are available; however, careful inspection of all suspension components should be performed before any parts are replaced.

Intermittent problems with the radio can typically be solved by updating the radio software.

If the engine does not crank (or cranks but won't start), the wireless control module (WCM) may have locked up. This is due to static discharge through the ignition key. A revised model should be installed, but simply disconnecting the negative terminal of the battery for thirty seconds will temporarily reset the module so you can start the car.

A squeak heard while turning the steering wheel may indicate that the rubber boot seal on the steering shaft needs some trimming and lubrication.

The carpet under the right side of the dash may become wet with water. This can be caused by the AC evaporator drain being plugged with debris. Our technicians tell us that once the drain is clear, a cabin air filter should be installed to keep debris out.

Due to a problem with the rear drain, the sunroof may develop a leak into the passenger area. The drain tube can get kinked; tubing can be installed over the drain hose to prevent further problems.

When the outside temperature is above 90° F and the AC is running, a knocking noise from the engine compartment may be heard, especially when the vehicle is stopped or idling. This is commonly caused by a failing AC compressor assembly which will require  replacement.

To inspect a connector for the cooling fan motor, Dodge issued a safety recall. Coolant may be drawn into the connector, causing a short circuit and potentially an engine fire. Dealers are installing a revised wiring harness and replacing any damaged fan motors.

The remote start or keyless entry system may not function at times. A service repair kit is available which should correct this condition.
