Noticed transmision fluid on my driveway, car never acter weird, took it to mechanic and right away he told me it was the connector. He changed it with the Dorman brand but the car is acting weird and it seems the new connector is causing shorts...in the process of changing it again.
Had to replace O ring assembly in transmission for electrical plug. It happens on Mercedes too with same transmission, Rock auto sell part for $10 dealer charged me $150 for parts and labor, Should be a recall its a known defect. Remember MOPAR=NO CAR.
