Question about 2005 Dodge Magnum
Smoking the tires on those Ram Hemi Pick-ups look great on TV. So I took my then brand new 2005 out and did just a little power breaking, hold the brake pedal down while giving the gas. No trouble. The next day I start the truck... it's running on about 4 cylinders and the lightning bolt shows up on the dash. Well I had to have the flatbed come and take it back to the dealer. They called and said the truck was in limp mode and it looked like I'd been power braking the truck. That was a little embarassing.
Is there anyway to beat the limp mode. Any recommendation on the various superchip kind of installations?
I'm a parent....and when my child does silly and borderline stupid things with his toys, I take the toys away for a period of time sorta like a time-out from his fun. He then looks for creative ways to prevent getting in trouble again by means of a Toy Superchip that will keep dad's awareness of the violations at bay. Your truck manufacturer (Parent) has done that to you via Safe Mode, and you (like my son), having become a bit street-wiser, look for a Superchip way around it. Obviously, you're entitled to do as you please with the truck, so surprisingly, I support you. Have fun...pay your consequences in full, and someday in the far future when your son power-brakes your sedan...smile in fond recollection and punish him as you should.
By the way, if you want old fashion fun on four wheels, get an old beater with a small engine computer...and make lots of dust and noise over in the next neighborhood...but not mine.
God Bless and keep everyone else safe.
