On the relesed date, are there any that were released in 04 that aren't listed? The bottom two TSBs came out today? On a saturday? =)

This is really helpfull, it'd be nice if we just keep this thread for adding more TSB info to it, or like the tranmission shudder fix that has no TSB yet, but someone had parts listing for what was replaced in his 300C and it fixed the 55-58mph shudder.

Yes, released today, Saturday...

I have updated the list to include ALL TSB's issued for the LX, model years 2005 and 2006, and also have added all Recalls, Customer Satisfaction Notices (CSN) and Rapid Response Transmittals.

Is there a way to get specifics on some of those? (ie - 23-007-05a)
23-007-05a involves installing isolating foam between the rear shelf trim and the body. PM me your email addy and I will send you the 2-page PDF w/diagram.

How are you getting the full TSB info? Do you work for Chrysler, or paying for the TSB's? I have done a lot of googling for the complete/detailed TSB info but only found sites that would sell them. No free-bees.

Also, I would like to see the new alignment specs for this TSB.
03/12/05 …. 0506 …. #02-002-05 …. Right Lead/Revised Alignment Specifications

The original TSB spec's on March 25, 2004 have been widely published.
Many folks are still having the Right lead problem. These new specs might be able to fix their problem.

I have some good contacts at DCX so do not have to pay for any bulletins.

Per the alignment specs, kind of hard to post them here as they are in a large multi-column chart - unless HTML can be used in posts (?). The TSB is somewhat involved and is 4-pages long, how were the old ones formatted/displayed?
Here is how the TSB was posted by MightyMax. Not sure if this copied from the TSB, or was modified.

-------------------------------------------------
NUMBER: 02-003-04
DATE: May 25, 2004


SUBJECT:
Right Lead

OVERVIEW:
This bulletin involves adjusting the alignment to revised specifications.

MODELS:
2005 (LX) 300/Magnum

NOTE: This bulletin applies to vehicles built prior to April 25, 2004 (MDH 0425XX).

SYMPTOM/CONDITION:
The vehicle operator states the vehicle leads to the right.

DIAGNOSIS:
Drive the car on a FLAT road. If the car tracks straight, the vehicle operator is experiencing crown sensitivity. If the vehicle tracks to the right, perform the Repair Procedure. Crown sensitivity can not be eliminated in all the cases. Vehicles built on or after April 25, 2004 already have the alignment biased and no further action should be required or taken by the dealer other than verifying the vehicle is set at the revised specifications listed in this bulletin.

NOTE: Before evaluating the vehicle, it is important to check the following:
1. Tire pressure - Adjust tire pressure (if necessary) in all four wheels to the pressure stated on the door placard.
2. Tire size & type - Verify that all four tires are the same size and type.

NOTE: When evaluating the vehicle, always drive the same road in both directions to get a feel for the effect of road crown & cross wind.

SPECIAL TOOLS/EQUIPMENT REQUIRED:
NPN Alignment Equipment

REPAIR PROCEDURE:
1. Use the procedures outlined on TechCONNECT to set the wheel alignment to the specifications below.



NUMBER: 02-003-04
GROUP: Suspension
DATE: May 25, 2004

NOTE: When aligning the front end to induce right caster bias (the vehicle will tend to track toward the side with the least positive caster), target the cross caster to be -0.8 degree and no more than -1.3 degrees. That means you will have more caster on the right than on the left. Cross camber should be set in at +0.2 - +0.3 degree. That means you will have more camber on the left than on the right. Utilize the cradle shift method PRIOR to using the caster/camber adjustment bolt kit, p/n 05134117AA. The adjustment bolts only provide about 0.2 - 0.3 degree change and should only be used as a last resort. When shifting the cradle, the passenger side of the cradle will move forward in car and the driver's side will move rearward in car.

NOTE: After the cradle has been shifted, torque all 4 cradle bolts to 175Nm (130 ft. lbs.).

CAUTION: If an adjustment bolt is to be installed do not allow the bolt head to turn during disassembly or assembly, the cradle tension link joint or the lower control arm bushing inner metal sleeve will be destroyed and require replacement. THE NUT MUST BE UNTORQUED AND REMOVED, BEFORE THE BOLT. Once the nut is removed the bolt can be slid out.

Thanks for posting the TSB.
I don't want to hijack this thread and turn it into a right pull/lead thread, but I will post my observations because the problem is still effecting many people.

I had my right lead/pull corrected back in December with a simple alignment.
Below were my ACTUAL caster settings after the alignment.
Compared to the original/first TSB my ACTUAL front left caster was out of spec.
Compared to the new TSB my ACTUAL caster are now in-spec, except for the cross caster.

What is important to note, however, is that even though my original/BEFORE was within spec with the new (and old) TSB, my car still pulled/lead to the right. My dealer didn't just stop there and return the car with the all too familiar "car is within spec" answer. Instead he worked/tweaked the caster/camber until he fixed the right lead/pull.
This is the difference between a good dealer and a bad dealer.

-----Caster Front Left------------Original 2004 TSB-------------------New 2005 TSB---------
Actual__Before_________Preferred Recommended Range______Preferred Recommended Range
__8.8____9.9_____________10.3______9.0 to 12.10____________9.4____8.40 to 10.40

----Caster Front Right---------
Actual__Before
__11.1__10.5_____________11.10_____9.0 to 12.10___________10.40___9.40 to 11.40

---Cross Caster Front-----------
Actual__Before
_-2.4__-0.6______________-0.80______-1.3 to -0.50__________-1.0____-1.60 to -0.40

The TSB does not give much diagnostics info. Check your module for the P/N range listed below. If you need the diagnostics procedures shoot me a PM, it's about 30pgs worth.

SUBJECT: UConnect Hands Free Phone Inoperative

NOTE: This bulletin applies to vehicles equipped with UConnect™ Hands Free Communications (sales code RSP) as listed below:

Module P/N 05064013AR or higher

DISCUSSION: If the UConnect Hands Free Phone is inoperative and if there are no DTC's, perform the existing diagnostic procedure available in TechCONNECT under: Diagnostics, Telecommunication, Voice Recognition/Phone Switch Circuit Short to Voltage. The problem may be an open phone button circuit. The diagnosis for the open phone button circuit is covered in the “Short To Voltage” test. There is no DTC for the open phone button condition.

Gonna make my dealer's life too easy on em! :) Have a list of 8 things to fix, and 4 have a TSB with one other being the rims pitting issue. Does anyone know if there is a specific TSB for the issue some people mentioned where the climate control just stops pumping out warm air about a half hr unless you crank it all the way to heat? (And possibly related, the outside temp gauge will occassionally just jump 5 degrees above normal). I believe I saw it was a software flash, but didn't see an actual TSB for it.

I don't know about the heat sometimes not working properly, however, TSB # 24-004-05 relates to the a/c system cutting out at times. It may be related as the fix is new software. The TSB is for all 2.7 and 3.5 engines built prior to 8/19/04, and all Hemi's built prior to 1/31/05.

I am taking my "C" in tomorrow to have it updated.

crown sensitivity

I hate my 300c's crown sensitivity -- going to sell it and kiss chrysler good-bye for life

there is no tsb for it and right lead tsb says 'may or may not fix crown sensitivity'

so there is no fix?
