      General Questions

      hey everyone, I'm having a couple of maybe maintenance issues just wanted some general feedback.

      first
      I'm finding a serious issue driving my car in respect to smelling outside aroma's? cigarette smoke, diesel fumes, etc. changed the cabin filter about a year/20,000km ago, I've never experienced this in regards to driving a car with all of the windows closed, with or without the HVAC(heating and cooling) cabin system running.

      second
      fabric seats, is anyone else having an issue with stains really staying in the fabric for a very long time? any advice towards getting the stains out/ is scotch guard effective in protecting agasint this?

      third
      is there a common guide\manual for trim parts in the cabin of the car so far as part numbers?

      forth
      I have a carbon fibre wrapped hood, roof, trunk lid on my car, not sure if this is factory or after market, I notice after about a week from cleaning the car it turns like a whitish black color, until I wash it again, any product I can use to keep it black for longer.

      fifth
      is there any secret menus with the dashboard, when I had my 300 I used to be able to pull up a diagnostic screen that would show me like battery power level, fuel levels, etc etc.

      thank you in advanced, for taking time to read this

      1) I haven't had any issues with outside odours. Perhaps try changing your cabin filter again? I try to change mine every year just to keep things fresh.

      2) I've found that a handheld steamer works great for cleaning the seats. They are fairly cheap at walmart

      3) Not sure what you mean about this one. If you are trying to remove trim pieces search for viperman's thread on here. It has alot of detail

      4) I think they make protectant/waxes for vinyl wraps. That may help this issue

      5) If you have the 8.4 follow these steps for the secret menus (Hacking Uconnect 8.4A and 8.4AN - Dodge Cummins Diesel Forum)

      It looks like some really cool member already posted something about that here: Secret Test Mode Screns on Uconnect 8.4N

      But seriously, there are no secret screens that do anything useful and no way to display any diagnostic information about the vehicle.
