SOURCE: 2002 chrysler 300 wont go into park

It sounds like your linkage is binding. Hold the brake down and shift between drive and reverse a few times and then into park. I had the same problem with my 2002 300m. It went away after working the shifter a number of times. DO NOT FORCE IT.

SOURCE: Interior Lights Flash On and Off By Themselves

The interior lights are controlled by a module that gets its information from the sensors in the car door and the switch on the dash that is associated with the dash lights. There is an intermittent short in one of the doors or the module.

Sorry it has to be so vague, but there is not way to know where with out taking some things apart. An intermittent electrical short that can not be duplicated on demand is the hardest thing to diagnose. This is one that needs to go to someone who specializes in electrical diagnosis.

Hope this helps

SOURCE: 2006 Chrysler 300, no start

It is all about troubleshooting. Possible causes are a dead battery. Did someone try to steal it and cut the wrong wires underneath?
The starter solenoid could be bad.
If the headlights stay bright when you try to start the car then it is not the battery. if you hear clicking and the headlights are very dim then it is likely to be the battery. If you have full battery with good cable connections and you get very active clicking but no starts then the solenoid on the starter has burned contacts. if battery is good but no clicking when trying to start then the problem is in the key area or alarm system.
All the areas mentioned above are place to start and troubleshooting steps.

Check the battery voltage of your car. You should have met 12.7v if I am not mistaken but in your case you may have to check your alternator as well. You should get 13v to 14v when the engine is running. The lights you have mentioned would turn on at the same time if voltage drops at low levels. Other than that inspect the sensors at the wheel hubs. If you have a voltmeter they should give out signals when wheels rotate. If not they may be faulty. Sensors may have also been disconnected at the bottom of your seat. Although it is rare that both may malfunction at the same time unless there are wiring issues. You may have to inspect for bad wiring such as exposed conductor, loose wires or terminals which may need cleaning.

2001 chrysler 300 dash light for a/c, temp, heater doesn't light up

Hi I'm glad to help!

What we have found at the dealership is some of the A/C Control Heads the lights can be replaced. Call the Chrysler Dealership and give them your VIN and see if the bulbs are offered by themselves. If they are get a hand full of them and pull the control head and fix it yourself to save money. NOTE: If the bulbs are not offered by themselves then your have to but the control head or just leave it the way it is. Hope this helps and have an awesome day.

Interior Lights Flash On and Off By Themselves

Pull one door sensor at a time and test. They get compressed too far and eventually no longer open the circuit. If you find a switch compressed too far, just replace it...

Door switches are self adjusting, to allow for differences in jamb tolerance... Start with driver's door.

omg!! i had the same problem. i had just bought my 300 and the first night i drove it, i thought my alternator was going out!! to make a long story short, it had to be taken to the chrysler dealership for the computer to be updated. that solved the problem. what caused mine is i had the tailights replaced because one was cracked. it seems that anytime you replace something electrical on this car, your computer has to be updated. like, if your tire pressure light comes on and you put air in it, your light will stay on until you take it to the chrysler dealer for them to reset it. just something else to get your money, that's my opinion. hope that helps. another fyi: your valve stems are very expensive to replace. 125 dollars, be careful when your cleaning those wheels!
