    electrical issues

    I bought my 2013 dart limited 03/26/13. I had it for less then a month and started having issues with remote starting my car and electrical items in the car. For instance one time my sunroof would not open another time my heated seats and steering wheel did not work. Then my express up and down on both driver side and passenger side were not working right. After about a week of the dealership having my car they finally replaced the whole wiring harness for the motor. Since then my radio had blacked out once and I have yet to find any other problems.

    may be a loose ground strap on the front rail. My car had similar issues and that fixed it all

    I started having problems with the radio and A/C not turning on after car being on. Also, dashboard screen was displaying the battery light and the screen was dim. I have to wait around 10 to 30 mins for them to turn back on. I noticed this after i went to a dealership to install fog lights and wasnt informed by the repair guy that my BCM was replaced until they gave my car back. This problem keeps on happening and idk what to do.

    You'll find that these cars have protection from under current built into them. also if the modules do not "boot up" correctly, the computer will disable the module, if it is not a safety item.

    Since neither one of you gave any real info on your car, it's guessing time.

    Casper:

    Your radio blacked out "ONCE" since they replaced the wiring harness. One fault does not a problem make. It sounds like it didn't initialize correctly, so the computer disabled it. If it was a chronic problem you would have a complaint, but it sounds like the computer did what is designed to do, protect the module.

    Replacing the wiring harness is a daunting task, so it sounds like they served you well.

    dodgedart00:

    What alternator does your car have? You added more current draw, you may have over stressed the system.

    These cars are full of electronics, so adding accessories can over stress the alternator/charging system.

    Any other additions since you purchased it?

    It should have only added 10 amps when they installed the fog lights, I wouldn't think that would be too much, but who knows for sure without testing it.

    Don't the Limiteds all come with the 140 amp alt?. Seems it would be required for all the extra electronics. ?

    It doesn't say whether dodgedart00 has a Limited or not. I'm assuming not.

    Come to think of it, a Limited would come with fog lights, so he can't have a Limited.
