Chrysler 300 Stock Navigation system joystick??

My joystick is no longer working.. It feels all loose and just hangs there. I took it to the dealership but they cant fix it. They must replace the whole unit... I have heard it is something that can be fixed?? is this true? and how?

    Same here. I have looked all over the net. A couple of companies will repair one in Denver and one in MA. The one in MA has a picture of the replacement joystick. I just don't feel comfortable sending it across country and can't find anyone local in Atlanta that can fix it.



    Also, good advice is on the Chrysler 300 forum that may help.

I have a Kenwood Audio Video Surround Receiver and some of the sound effects are no longer working properly. The sound on these effects comes out crackly/muffled.


assuming they did sound correct there are some possibilities:

your wiring, if you live a humid area it might be that your wires are a bit corroded at either the speakerterminal or at the receiver terminal. Simply cut of the corroded part and reconnect.

If your surround speakers are on a stand the wires probably hang down and after some time, specially with thinner wires, they might get a bit loose in the connection. Simply reconnecting them will solve it.

Resetting the receiver will sometimes help as well, most of the times this is mentioned in the manual or on manufacturers site.

let me know if solved.

I can get no sound from my hitachi AX-M80 CD system


Loose connection or cold solder and cleaning problem this is the main caused of no sound..Cold solder issues - each component is soldered into small holes on the printed circuit board which in turn connects said component to the other components. Due to time, heat, use, some solder joints would be cracked or loose. It is possible that the cold solder is still minimally connected (hanging by a thread). When the receiver turns on heat would be generated which would be sufficient to further loosen up the solder joint to the point it no longer provides electrical contact. Jarring the unit creates movement inside enough to re establish the contact, sometime good enough sometimes not enough.

Again, since the unit still operates (sometimes) then it is highly probable that there are no defective components. As you have surmised, it is possibly a loose connection, solder joints are "connections" except that molten soldering lead is used to attach/connect the component to the board, "loose connection" in this sense is equal to "cold solder".

Again on the assumption of no defective parts, then seeking a more experienced buddy for the soldering might be to your advantage. This is of course in addition to the possible electrical hazards when repairing....

Good luck:
