Challenger RT 5.7L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 11,356 miles

I am the original owner. From the first we have seen starting problems with this vehicle. Dodge dealer stated the heat can sometimes affect the starting.

On 4/13/16 vehicle would not start and had it towed to a local car repair. The problem was diagnosed as a faulty TIPM Totally Integrated Power Module which is an issue Chrysler has been dealing with for years. Was told by the repair shop that a new TIPM is about $800 and are back ordered.

Vehicle is going to be towed to a Dodge dealership to see what they can do.

Challenger SRT 6.1L

  • Automatic transmission

Made a left hand turn into my subdivision. Lost power steering and brakes. Could not control car at all. Almost hit a brick sign at the entrance of the subdivision. Had to shut car off and restart. No issues once I restarted the car. This happened a few years back once before but the car shut off then.
