Missing 20 Amp Fuse

Here's one for you gear heads. I was snooping around the Front Power Distribution Center, looking at the empty fuse spaces and matching the empty slot with the owners manual to see what's missing. Numbers 12 & 13 are normally empty. Number 16 is empty but owners manual shows it should have a 20 Amp fuse for the Powertrain Control Module! Should I have a fuse there but wonder why it's not there if it should be. This is on my 2005 300C

According to the 2005 300 Series & Magnum service manual Fuse #16 is a 20A and supplies the rear power outlet of the LX49 model, or station wagon.

To wit:
"POWER OUTLET

DESCRIPTION
Sedans are equipped with two 12–volt electrical outlets. Wagons are equipped with three 12–volt electrical outlets.
The outlets are located in the following locations:
Cargo area right quarter trim panel (wagons only).
Inside the center console.
Next to the ash receiver in the center stack.
The outlets in the console and quarter trim panel have power at all times, and include tethered covers. The outlet
in the ash receiver tray is shipped with power available only when the ignition is in the ON position. This outlet can
be changed to provide power at all times by moving a fuse in the fuse block."

So, what you are missing is only the Dodge Magnum. Good luck finding it!!

Nope, not the console power supply, owner manual says Powertrain Control Module.

Simple solution then: put a 20A fuse in the empty space, and the next time you go snooping around the PDC all will be in accordance with the owner's manual.

It still makes me wonder why the Powertrain Control Module fuse would be missing and how could the car function without it.

DESIREE - The fuse you listed for the console power is the one from the REAR fuse box. His missing fuse is on the front fuse box.

OhioDavidBS - you do already have a 20 amp fuse in location #14 for the PCM.

The 2005 model year went through some changes between "early build" vehicles and later built vehicles. Specifically, the PCM for "early build" vehicles was an SCI bus communication variant while the later build versions made it to the CAN bus version. This mid-year PCM change could result in the discrepancy with having two fuses listed in the fuse box. Don't know that this is the case, but it would be my educated guess due to the mid-year changes.

I stand corrected.
