Chrysler 300 Problems

Automobiles today are well engineered machines and are essentially computer controlled. The Chrysler 300 is also one such automobile that communicates internal problems through the display of codes apart from physical symptoms.

To know more about other Chrysler 300 problems, listed below are common questions answered by Experts.

What can be done if the Chrysler 300 is stuck at “Park” and fails to shift?

One should check the rear brake lights to see if they work when the brake pedal is pressed. If the brake lights do not turn on, the problem is probably related to the brake light switch located at the top of the brake pedal arm. This switch controls the rear brake lights as well as signals the “Shift Interlock” to release when the brake pedal is depressed. The electrical connector should be inspected for loose or broken wires. If the visual inspection is fine, replacing the switch can resolve this Chrysler 300 problem. In case the brake lights are functional, the problem is most likely a broken internal spring on the shifter assembly, where an override procedure is not helpful due to the location of the brake. This is a substantially major problem experienced with the Chrysler 300, where recall #K39 has been issued as well. The Chrysler 300 repair for this would be carried out free of cost and involves removing and rebuilding the shifter assembly.

Why doesn’t “U-connect” on the Chrysler 300 C activate when the button is pushed?

This could be because the Hands-free Module can cease and stop functioning. There is a service bulletin regarding this Chrysler 300 problem as well. In order to deal with this issue, the system should be reset by pulling the IOD fuse and the HFM should be updated with revised software.

Why is the Tire Pressure Monitoring (TPM) system light not going off on the 2010 Chrysler 300 Touring?

Generally the TPM system displays a light when the tire experiences high, low PSI or other related problems. Most probably this is a case of a failed TPM sensor. In order to diagnose further, a Chrysler scan tool is necessary. If the car is under warranty, the sensor can be replaced within the warranty coverage. In order to replace the sensor, the tire needs to be removed.

What does the code P1004 mean on the 2007, 3.5L, Chrysler 300 Touring?

The P1004 is related to the performance of the short runner valve actuator. This actuator can be found on the plenum to control the short runner valve, which is a valve responsible to alter the length of the intake runners at certain times. The reason for the code could be due to the actuator’s wiring, the actual actuator or restricted movement of the valve. The first step in Chrysler 300 repair is to reprogram the powertrain control module with revised software. After the updating, a scan tool can be used to actuate the short runner valve actuator while its duty cycle is observed. If it is normal, the software update has been successful in fixing the Chrysler 300 problem. On the other hand if the duty cycle is out of range while at rest or while actuating, the actuator would need to be removed and the valve moved through the range by hand. If the valve is unable to move freely by hand, the plenum needs to be replaced. If it moves freely, the actuator needs to be replaced.

Why does the Chrysler 300 C shut off while driving?

The three main causes for this Chrysler 300 problem once the engine is sufficiently warm is a failing crankshaft position sensor, a camshaft position sensor or a failing engine computer (PCM). To tackle this problem, an auto parts store such as Auto Zone can be approached and requested for the use of their scan tool to check for trouble codes. They usually grant this service free of charge. If a code depicting “loss of crank sensor signal or cam shaft sensor signal” is displayed, the appropriate sensor should be replaced. If there are no codes present, the PCM is most probably faulty and may need to be replaced.

Listed above are some of the Chrysler 300 problems experienced. This article provides a brief idea, an overview on the various Chrysler 300C troubleshooting areas involved. There may be several other unanswered questions in your mind. This is where the value of Experts is high. They can provide Chrysler 300 information and answers to your particular problem or issue quickly and affordably.
