Battery dead. New exhaust from last week. Panel says “FCM”

Customer Question
Battery dead. New exhaust...

Battery dead. New exhaust from last week. Panel says “FCM” off.? 2013 Chrysler 300C hemi

Mechanic's Assistant: Did you test the battery with a voltmeter? And have you ever changed one before?

Not test it but I have it on a trickle charger and it’s taking all the charger can give it

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

I’d like to. I think it is a elated to the new exhaust. The check engine light was on for an hour which I figured was the pcm recalibration. Then it stopped and I haven’t driven it for 4 days. I think something drained the battery

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

That’s it thanks

The car won't start and the battery went dead.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Not just yet. Thank you. I will wait and see if battery charges first, then I will try to start it
Dodge Mechanic: Mopar Certified, Dodge Technician replied 4 months ago

Thanks for the reply. So you are still charging battery, is that correct?

You may want to consider having the battery tested at your local parts outlet. Sometimes there is an internal defect in the battery that causes it to go dead so you may need to just replace the battery.

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.
