Dodge Charger owners have reported 17 problems related to brake abs warning light (under the service brakes category).
As I turned to pull in my driveway, all at once the abs light and stability control light illuminated on my dash, the powersteering quit working, all at the same time the vehicle had begun making a loud high pitched humming noise with smoke coming from under the hood that had a very intense burning, electrical type smell. Then the dash flashed that the car was in battery saver mode, subsequently dying altogether. Upon having towed the car to a Dodge dealership, the service department informed me that I needed to a) replace the alternator b) replace the belt and c) replace the battery because the alternator caused it to go bad. The total for all repairs will be $1224. I still don't have the vehicle back, but I've done extensive research online and learned that there is a recall (recall number p60) involving some 2011-2014 model year Dodge Chargers and their alternators. Seeing as my vehicle is a 2011, and I am having this exact issue, I need to know why my vehicle was not included in the original recall. Having alternator failure when my vehicle is only 4 years old is unacceptable, not to mention, it is incredibly unsafe to lose powersteering, abs and esc as the vehicle smolders for hours even after completely dying.

I was driving my vehicle when all of a sudden my radio turns off, then my abs and tread light come on along with a light that says "brake now. " I come to a stop and then everything shuts off. I can not push the brake to start the car back up and a burning electrical smell is coming from the hood. I have to manually lock my doors as the alarm does not work, then my windshield wipers start going off. Based off of research a lot of people are having these issues and saying it is the alternator. That is unacceptable for a 2011.
While driving the battery saver mode came on, after that the abs warning light came on. Then power to the radio was cut out and the ac fan speed started jumping sporadically until shutting down as well. Then the speedometer fell to 0 even though I was travelling at a constant rate. Once stopped in a parking lot the car went completely dead and I was unable to restart the vehicle and had to have it towed. There was a burning smell coming from under the hood and also a whining noise could be heard from inside the cabin prior to the failure. The alternator did have to be replaced.
The contact owns a 2011 Dodge Charger. The contact stated that while attempting to park, the vehicle stalled and the steering wheel became hard to turn. The contact also mentioned that the abs deactivated and the battery save mode light illuminated. The contact determined that the alternator failed, causing the problem to recur multiple times after the battery was recharged. The alternator was replaced but failed to remedy the problem. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 79,000.
If don't enter information how will you contact me to help? my radio went out first I didn't think nothing of it, but when I got closer to home my car started making weird noises and then my abs light came on my stability light came on as well the ac went off and came on started blowing hot burning air, lucky I made it close to the dealership cause the car completely died on me I couldn't steer it. I had no power to turn, I'm happy I didn't get hurt or have my kids in the car at the time.
On my daily routine home, out of the blue, my esc light comes on. Immediately im concerned and notice some loss of power. No less than a minute later my abs light comes on as well! so I pull over and shut off the car and then then cut it back on, no luck. The car starts but the engine won't cut on and both lights are still on. So I cut it off again and wait a few then attempt to cut it on again and it gets worse! the car reads "no key detected" and then completely shuts off. So I immediately assume the battery is dead and call my brother for a jump. He comes and jumps me and no success. The driver info still reads "no key detected". So now im left wondering what's gone wrong. I had it towed to the dealership for service and and notice that this vehicle has already been serviced for an esc/abs light recall back in may of 2012. So this leads me to believe that this is a serious electrical issue. Like some other owners I too also have a burnt out passenger side headlights wiring and definitely expressed my concerns if that could be causing an uneven power distribution. Its so disappointing. This is the second time in 3 months my car has been brought in for major service. Frankly I no longer feel confident behind the wheel of my vehicle. Winter is fast approaching and don't want to get stuck on the side of the road with no power and no heat. Minor issues are one thing but major issues on a late model car is alarming. Im certainly not happy and really am at the tipping point of surrendering this vehicle. At this point what else am I to do?!.
Drove to a business and once placed in park, the gear shift became stuck. Called aaa, they were going to tow it, then another driver showed up for aaa and knew just what to do. He takes apart the case that goes around the gear shift and presses on a pink colored emergency park release lever, ( why is that even an option??!!! ) it was obviously not attached to any thing as it fell down into the space around the shifter and still resides there. The discussion of towing it came up again, then we noticed a cable attached to the shifter and after playing with it have developed a system to unlatch it from park. You have to pull the cable to the left with a pen to disable the gear shift. Today I took it to where I bought it and they told me there was a recall on this and to take it to the Dodge dealership. The Dodge dealership knew just what I was talking about, but denies a recall on this. I am scheduled to have it fixed Monday the 12th. I dont feel I should have to keep paying for faulty equipment, this car has been a disaster since I bought it. The front end has been fixed about 4 times for vigourously shaking and a god awful rattling noise ( goes away for a short time then returns shortly after being fixed!!), numerous tires have been bought because that must be the problem too ( out of the mouths of the dealership), the tire pressure light stays on, the abs light system malfunctions and has left me with a no brake sensation on multiple occasions. I have always owned Dodges, but next time I purchase a vehicle it wont be a Dodge.
I purchase my car 9 months ago never had a problem until I took it to a dealer to get the 2 recalls fix after a week my car wouldn't turn on call them the steering wheel light show up engine light and abs too said it was the battery that dead but they charge and it was fine week later my car steering wheel lock couldn't brake because got lock too call the dealer show same lights steering abs engine lights too now they saying my hd lights was the cause for the computer to mess up call the guy who install them explain to them couldn't been the lightshe install a rely which does has any contact the cable with the computer they told me will late me know the next day still waiting for them to call me also a friend had problem too with the computer dealer try to charge him he got a lawyer dealer end up paying for everything they want to charge me 2700 for something that is not my problem hd lights been on my car for 9 months got them same day I purchase my car never had a problem until dealer put hands on it I ask different locations that put hd lights for cars like mines they said if the hd lights were install wrong it takes 3 to a week for the computer to shot down lock everything on the car no way to drive it but my car doesn't do that it turn ons only problem the steering wheel locks and brakes too sometimes wont turn on but it takes an hour and it turns but same problem the car already had a electrical problem is just dealer doesn't want to paid and looks for any excuse to make customer paid but im right everything is on file plus got proof too people that has experience on light all said same to me.
Brakes squeal loudly, steering shacks badly, abs light now on. Turned rotors and replaced brake pads at 36,000 miles. Problem still exists, was told that new rotors would have to be purchased. I have owned numerous vehicles and have never had this problem with rotors or premature brake pad repairs.
The abs lights and esp lights along with the traction lights appeared on the dash board, and when trying to stop the vehicle, pressing the brakes, it didn't come to a complete stop. It was very dangerous excorting my 10 year old son to school.
The contact owns a 2006 Dodge Charger. When attempting to stop the vehicle, the abs light illuminates and the vehicle fails to stop within expect parameters. He took it to the dealer four times, but the failure persists. The current mileage is 27,000 and failure mileage was 25,000.
