Known Problems

The AC drive belt tensioner bracket can crack and cause the belt to make noise or jump off the pulleys. The AC system may stop working as well. A cracked bracket could damage the cylinder head; it should be replaced.

An loose alternator drive belt may cause a growling noise in the engine area at low speeds (usually when accelerating from a stop). This is often mistaken for catalytic converter failure.

Door weatherstrips mounted on the body tend to shrink with age, leaving gaps that can create wind noise or allow water to leak into the car. Our technicians suggest the door weatherstrips should be replaced to correct these issues.

The instrument cluster may illuminate randomly to its full brightness and/or the fuel gauge may drop to the empty position. Typically the symptoms are infrequent and the instrument cluster returns to normal operation after a few seconds. An update to the body control module (BCM) will fix this problem.

An intermittent problem with static at startup or when the radio is switched to the satellite function can be fixed by replacing the satellite digital audio receiver (SDAR).

If the exterior side view mirror glass breaks, replacement glass pieces are available from MOPAR (the automobile parts and service arm of Chrysler). It is not always necessary to replace the mirror assembly.
A trouble code stored in the body control module (BCM) can prevent warm or hot air output from the climate control system. When the cause of the trouble code is fixed, heater function should return.
A loose timing chain on early models will produce a rattle (in the front of the engine) because the chain hits the guide. The timing chain should be replaced (the cam sprocket should always be replaced at the same time). Remove and discard the timing chain guide; on later V6 models, the guide has been eliminated.
