You’ll find plenty of electronics within the Dodge Challenge from any year. Everything from the power windows and the UConnect screen take power from the TIPM, or Totally Integrated Power Module. Unfortunately, the connections within the TIPM could experience a problem which requires the attention of a mechanic like us at Fremont.

Symptoms here include a loss of power to any various electronic part of your Challenger – and can be as bad as the vehicle simply not working.


Drivers tend to notice transmission issues as “skips” or “jumps” when your Challenger is accelerating or decelerating. Problems with your Challenger shifting become more common later in the life of the vehicle, when the transmission parts have worn down.

While you could take your transmission dipstick out to see if you have discoloration, metal bits, or anything unusual on it, you’ll want to bring it to us at Fremon Automotie for a further look. Transmissions remain one of the more complicated parts of a vehicle and you’ll probably need a pro to help you. With the level of complication present in a transmission, repairs are lengthy and expensive, so we suggest you bring your Challenger in with the first sign of problems.


The Dodge Challenger provides some serious power, but power comes with the potential for problems. The Challenge has been known to have issues with oil consumption, amongst many other smaller issues within. Our best suggestion for maintaining your Dodge Challenge? You should have your vehicle serviced on a regular basis at Fremont Automotive, including oil changes, filter replacements, and other things that your engine needs like coolant.


Between the rumbling of a potential HEMI engine under the hood of your Challenger, you might not notice the whining of a steering pump or the parts linking your steering wheel. This symptom means something either has a leak or continues to wear down past it’s ability to compensate, and offers another good reason why you should bring your Challenger in to Fremont Automotive for some regular maintenance.
