Question about 2005 Chrysler 300
SOURCE: Perform Service Light comes on
This is a setting that can be reset to 2000 miles - when it counts down to 0 you get the "Perform Service" alert. I believe if you use the Step function you will see "XX miles to Service" Use the reset button to set this back to 2000.

If it is an error produced by the engine control system, you should be able to clear it using an OBD II reader. OBD=on board diagnostics. You have to find the plug for the unit, but just plug it in and the machine will read it. I usually borrow one from the local car parts store--give an ID and they will let you temporarily borrow it. Make sure you read the error code as well. There may be some interesting info about what produced the error message. Good luck.

it is likely the coil pack failing. if you don't know how to test it perhaps have it tested or replace it yourself. you can get them fairly inexpensively at the local wrecking/recycling yard.
Please take a moment to rate this solution. thanks

The Chrslyer engines are prone to carbon build up in the engine when they are not driven hard. When the misfire occurs the engine runs rough, the car shakes a bit, and the check engine light comes on. The good news is that this is a recognized issue at Chrslyer. There is a Technical Service Bulletin (TSB) out for this. Synchronicity in the Universe being what it is, my car is in the shop at this moment being serviced for this very same thing. It is a 2002 300M Special Edition with 57,000 miles on it. I haven't been driving it as much because I started taking a commuter train to work and when I do run it, I do not let the engine get up to operating temperature nor do I run it at highway speeds - thus the carbon build up. You may simply need to have the carbon blown out of the engine. Talk to a Chrysler Tech about a TSB for carbon build up leading to intermittent engine misfires and see if this might be at the bottom of the problem.
