At the smog place in ca, the mechanic showed me that the VIN could not be read through the windshield because the "defect" is that the foam rubber between the windshield and dash has separated covering the metal label of the VIN number. He used a long thin tool like a knitting needle to push the foam out of the way to view the VIN number.

Had to replace the tipem, win and have key fobs reprogrammed to system. Have heard from other Dodge owners with similar problems that have had these parts replaced several times.I believe parts are defective causing these problems with the vehicles. I have researched and found multiple cases and not one significant cause as to why this keeps occurring. I even asked the Dodge mechanic and he stated the he doesn't know what would cause this to happen. As new as these vehicles are with maintenance upkeep this shouldn't happen and it usually occurs when the warranty has expired. This seems to occur most with 2006 thru 2009 models.

Charger 6-cyl

  • 70,000 miles
While traveling on rt 95 in canton, Massachusetts at 55mph in 2009 Dodge Charger, with wife and child aboard vehicle the left front tire, a tire less than 9 months old and less than 8,000 miles suffered a flat. Upon returning to service provider, was informed that the original failure was not in the tire, as it was leaking air through the tire sensor. Upon further inquiry, was further informed that the 2009 model Dodge Charger┐'s tire sensors were found to be less than adequate and have sense been upgraded by Dodge to a more durable model. Dodge failure to notify customers of this inadequacy resulted in vehicle being unknowingly driven in unsafe condition putting operator as well as wife and child operator in jeopardy.
