Chrysler 300M Problems

Damaged Cam Position Sensor May Cause Engine Problems

A damaged cam position sensor (or its wires and connector) can cause intermittent stalling, stumbles, or hard starting.

Recall on brake master cylinder due to brakes dragging when pedal is not pressed

There was a recall on the brake master cylinder in order to fix a problem that causes the brakes to drag when the brake pedal is not pressed. If the brakes drag, they will fade, causing overheating and increased stopping distance. The master cylinder is replaced under the recall.

Poor Heat Output Due to Air in Cooling System After Service

Poor output from the heater and/or engine overheating can be caused by air left in the cooling system after the cooling system has been serviced. Our technicians tell us the proper coolant fill procedure should be used to prevent this problem from occurring.

Hood May Open Unexpectedly

An internal component in the hood latch may have been manufactured with a crack. The crack could spread and break, which would allow the primary and secondary latch spring to disengage. This condition could allow the hood to open unexpectedly while driving, which could increase the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect the latch, and replace it if necessary. The recall began September 22, 2003. The Chrysler recall number is C29.
