Just came from picking up my daughter from work. After begging me for 10 minutes to drive I finally give in. While she was driving the dash and evic light up like a christmas tree. The most proniment thing that I saw was FCW off. Any getting this code?

From a quick search, I stumbled across a Jeep forum and people with the SRT Jeep that has the adaptive cruise control have this problem (FCW off) when the lens in the front bumper gets dirty and goes away when they clean it.
FCW = front collision warning.
better not let her drive it again. she's a jinx.
Ok, I will give that a try. The snow just melted and the car is filthy...hopefully that does the trick.
Finally getting a chance to bring the car in today to address a few things. This issue is starting to get worse. My car was totally clean when this warning popped up at least 10x over the weekend. GRRRRRR!
I think it means Front Counter Weight is missing
THat reminds me of the time I was going to Dodge to look at the new 392 challenger. My car which never gave me any problems suddenly would not start.

the 2011 chargers and 300's are both having problems with this issue.
theres a software flash for that..the problem is in the FCW So far customers that have had the flash are repoting that the fcw is no longer working at all...Dont know if chrysler has fixed the reflash to fix the first problem yet..
I'd be unstoppable if it wasnt for Physics & Law enforcement
The FCW OFF with the ABS and ESP lights is because of a growing issue related to an ABS power feed fuse. It was most widespread in the cop cars, but it can happen in civillian cars. There is a STAR case for it, and they made it a TSB for cop cars only, which becomes a recall very soon. Read on, I found out about this on Charger Forums, and helped out with some research:

Thanks, I am going to take my car in to my regular dealer to have this issue fixed. I just got randomly selected for the Dodge Customer service program. I now have a case worker and direct extension with Dodge for any issues that I have with my car. This a good thing for me since I was having problems with the dealership where I bought my car. The downside is that my local dealer has to now call for approval whenever they work on my car. I get most of my work done the weekend and coporate is closed.
Best of Luck getting it all fixed! Sounds like the solution is already known and "should" not be too complicated.
Just tell your daughter, "Hey... you break it, you bought it!"

Every time I've let my daughter drive my charger, the next time i drive it, the Tire pressure sensor light is on. She is a jinx

How'd you make out with this??? Did they figure it out and fix it???
Last Friday they did some type of software flash and returned the car. Later that day the error popped up again. I dropped the car back off with them with a copy of this forum thread. They said that they followed the STAR and made the necessary updates. So for, no surprises...
