Check Engine Light 2013 Challenger R/T 2k miles
My new 2013 Challenger R/T Plus has only 2,100 miles on it and I was driving up the hill from my house and I hear a clang sound and then my check engine light comes on :/ I took it to the local dealer (who has excellent reviews on Yelp) and they told me that the code was pointing to the Transmission and that it had a problem shifting between 3 & 4th gear and that the code was from 600 miles ago? I asked how a code from 600 miles ago is related to a check engine light that just happened yesterday. The answer I got was that the computer logged to code and tried to fix the problem and when it couldn't (600 miles later) it turned on the CEL. Sounds fishy to me. I also got out of the service manager that it could be a valve in the transmission. They cleared the CEL and told me if it happens again they will pull the tranny apart and look further. I took it out for a long 1.5 hour drive through the mountains today putting the car through Auto mode, Sprots mode, and Manual mode and no problems and no CEL. Anyone have this happen? Thanks!
EDIT******* Sorry Auto Transmission :P
