Known Problems

The front of the roof rack may begin lifting from the roof. Replacing the adhesive tape at the front of the side rails should correct this concern.

On some models a void in the rear window seal may cause a water leak. Water may be present on or under the carpet. The seal will need to be replaced if that is the source.

One or more power windows may stop working due to a failed window motor or regulator. In some cases these items are replaced as a set. If not, diagnoses will be required to determine which is at fault.

Software updates are available which may correct various electrical problems with the interior features and lighting.

The remote keyless entry system may not work intermittently. Our technicians suggest upgrading the software in the wireless ignition node (WIN) to correct this concern.

Warm air only may be discharged from the AC system due to a faulty infrared temperature sensor.

Coolant leaks coming from the underbody on vehicles equipped with rear heat/AC are common. The underbody hoses should be inspected as part of regular maintenance. If you drive on roads where salt is prevalent the problem is generally more severe. Some 2005 models are involved in a special service action, no government recall was issued.

Water leaks from the headliner may be cause by damaged sun roof drain tubes.

Excess cooling fan noise may be caused buy a faulty cooling fan and fan clutch.

A rough idle may be noted after starting the engine cold, along with illumination of the Check Engine Light with code P050D stored. Our technicians tell us the powertrain control module (PCM) software should be upgraded to correct this concern.

The automatic transmission can develop problems like erratic shifting, rough shifting, or delayed gear engagement. Repairs for many of these problems are outlined in service bulletins.

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.

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.
