      Some radios will require an anti-theft radio code to activate. Check with Chrysler Dealer to obtain the code, a VIN and ownership will require for proof.

    How many oxygen sensors are on a 2004 Chrysler 300M Special and what is the location?
    Had the vehicle on diagnostic and was told that the oxygen sensor and camshaft sensor need replaced. I know there is more than 1 O2 sensor and there is camshaft and crankshaft sensors. So I'm totally confused. And the worse part is I'm in Kuwait so the knowledge ...

      Hi Jeff , I'm not a pro but just went thru this with my Chrysler Pacifica 2004. Weeded thru pages of advice and extensive in depth a analysis that was way over my head then found the most simple tests that I could handle and performed them. First and most simple check fuses and relays in fuse box I was able to swap same from other accesories and determine not faulty . Next find where your wiring harness for the blower motor is mounted ( mine was right behind the Glove box after dropping the front door down depress sides of box and it comes right down). There was a temp controll resistor/ module with 2 plugs in it 1 was wiring from heater,a/c controls and the other ( 2 wire green and back) went to blower motor. I unplugged the 2 wire plug and from a separate 12 volt battery ran a jumper wire to the base of each wire going into plug, with key turned on (not necessary to have car running) and fan on. As soon as I touched the wires my fan worked so I knew it wasn't my blower motor, I then removed the other plug , pulled the resistor module out and checked with a cheap multimeter (set to continuity check) touch one of the terminals where the blower motors green wire was attached and to each terminal where the other plug would connect and the meter should either beep if it has that as a funtion or count down to 0 if it counts up towards infinity it will display the letters OL or just display a constant number 1 indicating the resistor is bad. Hope I made it simpler for you than it was for me and I think being both Chryslers 2004 they would be similar. Both tests worked for me and my problem is solved.
      Good luck, Tim

    My fog lights keep coming on , killing my battery. They come on when the lights are off and the key is removed.
    It seems as tho it could be caused by vibration-slaming the door other vehicles to close slamming there door or stero too loud. The switch was replaced a year ago when I had a simular problem

      The wheel nuts have become loose over time, as they work themselves loose vibration / force and the weight of the vehicle hit up against them and eventually strip the threads or snap the stud. This is why regular servicing and checks of tyre pressures / wheel nuts are so important.

    I have 22" rims and tires on my car. It makes a constant roaring noise when I drive like an airplane. Why is that?
    90,300 vehicle miles The only time I hear this sound is when I'm driving srtaight. It doesn't make the noise when I turn the wheel. The noise gets louder the faster I go.

      How many miles on the tire and what brand /model? the more aggressive the tread pattern and smaller the sidewall the more road noise you hear. Check that model tire on and im sure youll see some mention of noise complaints. Conti DSW tires a good low noise option to consider if you do need replacements.

    Any tips on improving gas mileage on a 09 Chrysler town and country ?
    Only getting around 16-17 MPG according to on board computer

      Take out the seats and leave the kids home ;-) That gas mileage is not as bad as your might think. But dont use that built in computer. Go fill it up, reset mileage clock. Next time your fill it divide mileage by gallons and you have your actual gas mileage which is probably 2-3 mpg worse. Newer air filter, synthetic oil, Low resistance tires and baby the gas pedal will get your a few more mpg

    Which option should I choose?Do I replace my whole exhaust system or just the cat backs since the exhaust looks okay?
    mileage is 46000 and the battery was changed once during warranty.

      Why are you replacing anything exhaust wise as preventative Maintenance?

      Check the manual for that car, the federal emissions warranty might still be in place 10yr/100k if your having some issues.

      Unless you have that car parked on grass/mud and its rotted out i would leave it alone.
