My 2008 Dodge Charger sometimes wont start and sometimes wont shift.

Asked by Jan 20, 2013 at 11:14 PM about the 2008 Dodge Charger

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Took my car to the dealership they thought they fixed it of course as i'm leaving it wouldn't start. So they showed me how to start it. You have to pop the hood then press on a little block located on the passenger side closest to the windsheild. It's the Computer PCM. And sometimes when I get it started If there are a bunch of lights on such as the ABS light the or the ESP/BAS light it's not going to shift. Or if I start the car and I shift it into gear and it shifts really hard I know it's not going to shift. So I was just wondering could both of these problems be the Computer PCM? I am thinking about replacing it soon but it's a $300 part and who knows the labor cost.

Sounds like PCM for sure. I also recently had an issue that was the power supply to all the Power modules main supply was not seated well/ disconnected- either of the two should be diagnosed
