Having problems with your 2006 Dodge Charger ?

2006 dodge charger r/t car has been sitting for over 3 1/2 months. Battery went dead and had battery replaced. However speedometer not working, turn signals not working and gas gauge not working. The car feels like it's stuck in cruise control and feels like it won't go over 30 mpg. or if eccelarted the car feels like it will stall out. The lights that are showing constant are: check engine light, tire pressure light,brake light ( blinky constantly) and abs light.Not sure why car would respond

This is a common problem for chrysler products....I am a level 2 chrysler tech.I dont know when your problem started but I have seen it and had the same type problem.....if it started before you changed the battery or not you have to take it to a dealer and request them to FLASH the vehicle...This means update the PCM.I have done this to all type of chrysler...mostly the 3ooseries,but also charger,town&country vans...etc..sometimes the radio will not work also....However if it happened after the battery replacement the technician may have arked the post or accidently installed it backward...this will sometimes ruin the PCM but you will not know until you have it FLASHED.....Normally if installed wrong you will just blow a fuse or two and it will not damage the PCM....UNLESS THAT HAPPENED AND THEY CHANGED THE FUSE'S AND DIDNT TELL YOU.But that is just a question the dealer will ask you.FLASH the PCM and it should solve your problem.HOWEVER the gauge problem could be a seperate problem in the instrument cluster,This is also another chrysler problem on some...If the FLASH dont solve the gauge problem the instrument cluster needs to be changed.

My car was having trouble starting, slow to turn, sometimes stalling out imediately after starting. Yesterday I went to start the car and it wouldn't start. Lights kinda flickered, but absolutely no response from the engine. Today a had the battery tested, (it was only 6 months old) and it was dead, I installed a new battery and tried to start the car again. There was no response from the engine, but the lights came on and the radio worked, but then lights slowly died. I would just like to knwo

My 2007 Hyundai Sonata stalled out on me. I got all the way to work before I had a problem, so I had been driving a good 20 minutes.

2001 Mitsubishi Diamante - When I first start the car, it feels like there is no power steering although there is plenty of fluid in reservoir. If I drive a short distance and turn the car off, it will not start when I return. Battery is new. There's no sound when you turn the key but lights, radio, windows work. Then, after a few more attempts at 5 minute intervals, none of them producing any sound to indicate the engine is going to turn over, it mysteriously starts. Has happened periodic

My 2000 Sentra has had the check engine light on and off for the past few months. First code told us it was the Mass air flow sensor, so got a new one installed ($60 online). Cleared codes and did not see much of a change. Car runs great when cold, but after a while starts bucking and will stall on full stops and slowing down. Feels like something is sucking the life out of it, and I see it's sucking gas as well. New code said catalylitic converter, but after getting a new battery the car ran p

Car won't start when I turn the ignition key. I put in a new battery thinking that might be the problem but that didn't work.

Engine light is on due to large vac leak why? its a 2006 mazda 3,and ive done everything possible to this car''everything''and i have the engine light on due to this code.the garage guy said its a leak in a air flow,ive changed all the filters..etc.....the car at times feels like it idles low,and at times wants to stall can anyone help,as im not a mechanic,and the garage guy has juiced me for enough money...as here in puerto rico there good for that...


Not a very good mechanic if he takes money for not fixing your problem. i'm assuming he scanned it and got a lean code, which usually means a vacuum leak. There are other issues that can cause lean codes, like lack of fuel flow. If it is vac leak, ... 2006 Mazda 3

Engin stall I have a 2007dodge caliber Automatic and I have problem. I'll be at a red light and it will turn green and I'll hit the gas and nothing it will feel like it's going to die but then a second or two later it will go. It also tends to sputter at stops.

Sputtering I have a 96 Cavalier and some days the check engine light will go on and some days it won't. Sometimes, it will sputter like it is going to die on me at random times but i think it may have something to do with how much electricity i am using at the time and how warm it is. I have had the alternator and battery checked and they were running fine but i dont feel safe with it sputtering and feeling like its going to stall out. I've also had it stall a couple times when i put it into gea
