cable clamp, chrysler 300m, 1999 chrysler 300m: Hi Blake, The most common way is to disconnect the battery - post cable clamp for 5 minutes which clears the memory but also will leave a code for battery supply to memory lost recently in the memory; but it too will go away after a while.

Chrysler Repair: Chrysler 3.3L engine misfires badly, emission control system, crank sensor
emission control system, crank sensor, engine coolant: Hi Tom, That is frustrating, no doubt.

chrysler 300, pawl, steep incline: Hi Thomas, The only reason for that I have experienced is when the torque on the parking pawl inside the transmission is particularly great, such as if you put the trans in park on a steep incline.
