Had Fuse Box Replaced, Was Fine For 2 Weeks--Now Blown Headlight, Replaced Bulb, Still Not Working. Checked Fuse Box Seems Ok. Was Told Fuses Had Corrosion On All Contacts & Affected Trans Shifting & Running.I DO Live On South Shore Of LI. So I Guess It Could Be. Was Told There Is Really No Protection Under The Hood From Any Moisture
BOUGHT BRAND NEW IN 06. DODGE HAD TO REPLACE THE WHOLE THROTTLE BODY AND DO A PCM FLASH UPDATE. ONE OF THEIR JACK LEG MECHANICS TOLD ME I SHOULD NEVER HAVE TO CHANGE TRANS FLUID UNLESS ITS LEAKING ON GROUND. WEIRD CAUSE THE MANUAL SAYS TO HAVE IT SERVICED AROUND 80,000 MILE RANGE. SO WHEN I REACHED 100 MILES. MY TRANS OVERHEATING LIGHT CAME ON. SO I HAD THE BLACK OLD FLUID SUCKED OUT AND NEW CVT FLUID PUT BACK IN. NOW CAR WONT EXCELERATE OVER 15MPH. I WILL NEVER BUY ANOTHER DODGE CHRYSLER PRODUCT, EVER! NOT TO MENTION ELECTRICAL PROBLEMS AND SUNROOF LEAKING. JUNK!
