Customer Question
I have a 2014...

I have a 2014 dodge charger and it says service shifter, ive taken it in for the shifter recall and they said all it was for was to update the software

Mechanic's Assistant: Does the vehicle have a fuse that enables or disables the shifter?

I'm unsure and havnt checked due to the fact that it also knocked out my power steering and making my transmission knock a bit

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

Ive bought an after market shifter solenoid and thoought it may help but didnt, but that was before the recall. they restored the original parts and and even opened an investigation with crystler and ended up with nothin but my car in worse condition. they say the only way to know is to have them take a look at it starting at 135

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

Not that i can think of, i just feel that i cant be the only one with this problem so there has to be an explanation. First it says service shifter when i start, then when i drive it says service power steering then service transmission

These problems you are having are most likely related to a CAN bus network problem in the vehicle. The CAN bus is the communications network that all of the computers in the vehicle use to communicate with each other. The dealer has to spend time figuring this out with the use of the WiTech scan tool. There is no other way. So spending the 135 will be money well spent to figure this out. Trust me on this. Iam a shop foreman at a Dodge dealer and know first hand about these systems.

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.
