300M

  • Automatic transmission
  • 125,000 miles

If anyone gets a diagnostic from a dealer please post.

Seems to be a very common problem with this make and model and the dealerships only seem to know how to charge for checking it out but do not have a clue how to fix their car issues.

problem #3

Dec 182009

300M 3.5L V6

  • CVT transmission
  • 99,000 miles

Thinking this car may be possessed by the Devil! Dash lights, interior lights and headlights brighten and dim intermittently on their own..sometimes they come on and go off all night long when the car is parked and the ignition off! Have had to get jumped off several times but am now unable to get jumped off as the spark that is created when attempting to do so nearly welds the clamp to the battery post of the poor vehicle that's just trying to help me out. This all started when my radio quit working one day...I start the car and no sound...power seemed fine...all of a sudden after driving abouot 15 minutes the sound would come from my speakers..as soon as I shut the car off and crank it back up we were back at square one with no sound....very weird

Defect in 2001 Chrysler 300M - Trying to get fixed since 1-03

Comments: For over 2.5 years I have been taking my Chrysler 300M to have a defect corrected. The defect is that the lights flash on and off intermittently (interior and exterior lights) in addition the horn will sound intermittently along with the driver's seat moving out of position and reclining and the driver's mirror moving out of position. The Chrysler Dealership has tried to correct this defect but has been unable to locate the source.

I have turned off all electronic auto switches in the vehicle through the control panel. This seems to of stopped the problem with the seat and driver's mirror (not sure about the horn) but not the light flashing. This has become dangerous because it is unpredictable about when it will happen (any time of the day or night including when the car is parked). At night the interior and exterior lights have started to flash during driving in heavy traffic. I have been very patient regarding this problem but I will not put my family in jeopardy any longer not to include the fact I am unable to use the upgraded options that I paid very dearly for. I would appreciate a response as soon as possible. I do not want to continue to be inconvenienced by continuously dropping my vehicle off any more. I am seriously trying to resolve this issue with Chrysler but want it to be clear that my next attempt to resolve this defect will be taken to our State's Consumer Affairs and Better Business Bureau.

Please don't blame the local dealership's service department; this is a problem from the manufacturer.

Your attention to this very aggravating matter would be appreciated.


Thank you. D. L. P.

> Dear D.:

Thank you for your email to DaimlerChrysler regarding your 2001 Chrysler 300M.

I regret the problem your vehicle has experienced and appreciate the time and effort you took to bring this matter to my attention. Comments like yours are one way we have to learn of problems that may develop and improvements desired by customers.

Unfortunately, given the many variables involved, we are unable to diagnose your vehicle's problem via email. We recommend contacting your authorized DaimlerChrysler dealership to arrange an appointment for proper diagnosis and repair.

Our dealerships have the factory training, equipment and information available to them to diagnose and correct problems with DaimlerChrysler Motors Corporation vehicles. Should your dealer require factory assistance, it is available through the regional Business Center.

If you have been working with an authorized dealership but the problem is not yet resolved, seeking a second opinion from a different dealer may be a viable option.

Thank you again for your email.

Cynthia: Unfortunately this is a continuation of the poor customer service that I have received from Chrysler since the day I paid cash for my 300M. Chrysler must have an abundance of cash paying customers to be able to just brush one of them off with such minor effort.

I have taken my vehicle to the same dealership three times over a span of two years creating an incredible hassle and wasting weeks of my time. The next closest dealership is 40 miles away. In addition to not being able to use the extra options that I have paid for, it appears you are recommending that I skip around the next two counties in addition to not using the vehicle for the extended period of time that the dealership keeps it. Although my other option is to continue to drive this unreliable vehicle which presents serious safety concerns.

It quizzes me what you think that I should use to commute back and forth to work during the weeks that your authorized dealerships keeps my vehicle to observe it without resolution.

I have come to the realization that the best option is to get rid of this albatross except then I would be passing a Chrysler problem on to another poor unsuspecting, hard working American. Just so you know, I am one of those last hold-outs that has never owned a foreign vehicle because I worked for General Motors for over 15 years. I want to support our American workers but can assure you that my next vehicle will come from a manufacturer that stands behind quality and doesn't just verbalize it; I thought that was Chrysler.

Thank you for a memorable vehicle experience.
