2006 Dodge Charger

I have a 2006 Dodge Charger R/T - we purchased this vehicle brand new (9 miles on it) from the dealer in September of 2005. At 14,000 miles the rotors went and had to be replaced. Now at 28,000 miles the same issues are occurring and we are told the rotors need to be replaced - the brake pads still have 60% life on them. Is this normal for a 2006 Dodge Charger?

    I am having the same problem with my 06 charger rt. I have 20,000 miles on the car and still have 80% pad left on the front and 90% pad left on the rear. It seems if I was a hard braker, I would have a lot less pad left. Also they state that all four rotors have the same .006 warp, it seems odd that all four would have the same warp when the pads are wearing at different rates?

This is not normal if you are not an aggressive driver, if you really drive the car hard then yes it is normal, since it is an R/T I will assume you are the latter. Rotors get damaged from heat of hard braking and warp making the brake pedal pulsate or the front end shake or both when the brakes are applied, is this your issue? if so take it easy on the brakes, make less aggressive stops. You could go to aftermarket HD brakes (rotors, pads), check on line for these kinds of parts, many companies sell them.

This problem has to duplicate while in the shop, although one vehicle had similar problems to yours it may not apply to your case this is what was found in this case. Vehicle had 84,000 miles. Customer complains of intermittent stall at idle, No CODES were found, after checking everything the fix was Replacing the ECM and reprogramming.

Where can i get a wireing diagram for a 2006 Dodge

The best place is from a Factory Service Manual. They are what the dealer uses. You can normally purchase a new one from the dealer. They are expensive and you may want to try your local public library Amazon or eBay to find a copy. Haynes manuals also have the wiring diagrams and there is one for your car. They are smaller and harder to read but it can be done. Check all of the above sources for a new or used one.
