Greetings, The joystick on my 2005 Dodge Magnum GPS just died. I found a place to repair it but I don't see how to get the bezel off around the unit. I found directions how to remove the unit but they start after the bezel is off. Anyone know how to do that? Thanks, Art
I bought my 2005 Dodge Magnum in '05 with only 400 miles on it. I have had only 1 issue and that was a simple replacement of the headlight switch ($49) due to interior lights flashing and cutting out. Everything else has been perfect until 1 week ago when my car began to randomly stall. It seems to happen at lower speeds and will run fine for a couple days before ... Read More
My wife's 2005 Magnum has same problem with lights dimming. So the fix is to take car to dealer for a software update and pony up 70-90 bucks to fix their defect?
i will let you know if i figure it out. i wonder how many other 2005's have this problem? it reminds me of my mothers old 1976 duster that the lights died coming home one night after shoping. me and my sister were very young and we held two pen lights out to let traffic know we were there. i guess i better keep two flash lights in the car!!!
i have the same problem with my 2005 magnum lighting problems flickering dim and bright after starting the car that i just bought. i was wondering if you ever found the problem?

Hey Jacklionel, I heard that the Hemi was on its way out, too, but for a different reason. I was told that it had to do with the Chrysler - Diamler break up. I was told that a lot of the features for the Hemi came from the Mercedes part of the Chrysler Diamler merger. When they parted ways, dissolved their merger, Diamler/Mercedes took the patent part of their Hemi engines ... Read More
I have a 2005 Dodge Magnum with 68,000 miles. I am noticing a loud vibration noise starting at around 30 mph. Around 65-70 mph it continues as long as I am accelerating. Once I let off the gas the vibration noise silences. And returns as I accelerate. I just got new tires and they checked the front end and found no problems with alignment. Any suggestions. Thanks Greg
Does anyone know how to remove the navigation dvd so that an upgraded disc can be installed? I owned a newly purchased 2005 Dodge Magnum R\T hemi and because of the model year (2005), I ordered and just received an upgrade navigaton disc, but with no instructions on how to remove the old one and install the upgrade. Anyone with instruction or information on how I can do this?
I just purchased a 2005 Dodge Magnum R\T (yes, its a Hemi :) ) with a navigation system. Since it was a 2005, I ordered an upgrade DVD for the Navigation system.

My 2005 Magnum SXT AWD with 3.5L V6 started to develop a vibration, shaking and low hum in the front end when turning left or right at low speeds like leaving a parking lot etc. The car has 39,500 miles on it.

Whoa-whoa-whoa. Where in the world did you get that a Magnum weighs 5,200 pounds? It would only weigh that much if it were carrying 1,300 pounds of load. The V-6 Magnum that Consumer Reports tested back when weighed, I believe, 3,950 pounds. A Dodge Ram pickup Hemi might weigh 5,200 pounds. Add in the hemi, 5-speed and AWD, and loaded with other options, and it's about 4,200 pounds. (If you were ... Read More

My 2005 R/T AWD and had the same shuddering problem during low speed turning. There is a TSB out there on this issue. The first time, the dealer flushed out the transfer case. When the shudder returned they replaced the transfer case. Haven't had the problem since the replacement.
I have a clunking noise in the front wheel, the shop cant figure it out.Anyone have a idea what it could be?

For the price of a Saab 9-5 you should have looked at the Magnum R/T AWD. The SXT is not a fair comparison. After owning a Saab 9-5 Aero wagon for 6 years I went for a 2005 Magnum R/T AWD. I was very disappointed with the quality and reliability of the Saab over the 6 years I owned it. It was my third Saab, but the first one to not ... Read More

Hey everyone - I've been reading this post for a while now and am wondering whether a used 2005 Magnum is a good idea?!

Here you go, andre1. If you were to lease a 2006 Dodge Magnum R/T 2WD through Chrysler Financial right now for 24 months with 15,000 miles per year, its buy rate lease money factor and residual value should be .00277 and 54%, respectively.

I was told by the dealer that the stock tires that came on my 2005 Magnum - Continental self-sealing tires - were a real problem. That's why the dealer replaced them at no charge with less than 6,000 miles of wear. That said, it isn't unusual for stock tires to wear out after 28,000 miles. The tires that came on my previous car - a Saab 9-5 wagon - wore out ... Read More
I have noticed a number of Dodge dealers still have NEW 2005 Dodge Magnum's left over even though the 2007 version will be coming out in a few months. Is anyone getting any great deals on these 2005's? I would expect with the 2005 version almost 2 years old, they should be selling for $7000 to $10,000 under MSRP. I have seen used 2005 Magnum R/T's for around $20,000, so I ... Read More
The right-pull issue was primarily confined to early-build 2005's. There were a multitude of reports and frustrations with the first few months of production on this car but they've died out on the various Dodge forums as people have gotten them taken care of. 6 times from a dealer is nuts. If a mech compounds their inattention to the very well-known TSB's out on this issue by telling you the car ... Read More

On occasion, when I start the engine on my 2005 Dodge Magnum RT AWD, the ESP BAS warning lights stay on instead of going off as they should.

The dealer thought it was a low battery and recharged the battery but this did ... Read More

Hello vdogrt, The 2005 Dodge Magnum R/T with the trailer tow prep group is equipped to tow up to 3800lbs. So you’ll be able to tow the 2500lbs with ease, with or without the transmission cooler. Dodge wouldn’t release information stating that the Magnum can tow 3800lbs if transmission heat would be an issue. So the decision to get a transmission cooler is really personal preference. Well enjoy what’s left of ... Read More
Cause the wheel and/or tire to rub on the suspension components. Not good!
What is the different backspacing going to do?
No you can not. The AWD wheels have different backspacing.
I have been told by my dealer that you cannot order a RTAWD for 06 model year,not available in 06? Anyone know if this is correct.Any rebates on 06 2WD?
Does any one know if the wheel's on the AWD Mag. can be changed to the wheel's that are on the RWD? .......and if not what is the diff. of the AWD and the RWD did they put diff. wheel's on the AWD to distingue between the two? For those of you that are wondering I don't care for the wheels on the AWD Magnum. Thanks in advance David

Nope. For 2005 the Lava Red was a 300 color only. The Magnum got Inferno Red which later became Blaze Red, which is what I have. It is possible that for 2006 Dodge will add the Lava Red to the Magnum, but I seriously doubt it.
