Customer Question
Hi, someone else, some...

Hi, someone else, some time ago, (an ex-boyfriend who was an amateur at car work) installed some kind of aftermarket type of gear in my car, likely with a gps/microphone, it works in accessory mode, even if the car is turned off. Since I don't talk to him anymore, this is a problem for me. I have a 2013 Chrysler 300, and I need to get all this "stuff" he installed out. I looked underneath the wheel ( I took that panel off) and all I saw was the HfM with some weird white wiring attached to it which I disconnected. I also took out the radio panel and disconnected everything, but the wiring goes deeper. I'm a bit frustrated not knowing where this stuff he installed (pumpkin/joying/aftermarket, something with gps and a microphone that works in accessory mode)/...he was stalking me for some time, and I'm trying to locate this stuff inside the car and I'm having some trouble figuring out how to access behind the dash. Does someone need to open the steering column? or is there an easy way just to open up the top of the dash panel? this seems like it would have to come off to look deeper behind the radio, and I can't see where the weird wiring goes from underneath the wheel since it disappears "up" into the dash somewhere behind the wheel. I'm frustrated with this, and he's been mean and wouldn't tell me where it was just out of spite.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fuse?

And keeps showing up in places and recording me in the car creepy

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Chrysler?

2013 chrysler 300

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your 300 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Well, i just need to get this stuff out, so yes, essentially. I really don't have the money to spend to have someone look, for several hundreds of dollars, and then tell me they don't know, so I'm trying to research online and get some advice

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I guess that's a descripton of the issue. I'm not sure if he wired something to an internal car mic, in the headliner? I'm concerned mostly about this aftermarket gear/android car stereo control/pumpkin thing that might be connected to the steering and works in accessory mode.

but how do I access under the dash? do I just pry that huge piece off? I already got behind the radio and under the wheel but I need to look further in
Chrysler Mechanic: Robert R, ASE Certified Technician replied 4 months ago
The dash itself requires hand tools to remove. Only certain parts can be removed without removing the entire dash. If you can post pics here it will definitely help me to help you get this figured out. Take a pic of the area of concern and I'll let you know what must be done to remove it.

I was skeptical at first but thought I'd give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised. Your site actually is a quality service that I would recommend to others in a heartbeat.

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
