Dodge Charger: VEHICLE MAINTENANCE / Air Conditioner Maintenance

Dodge Charger 2011-2022 Owner's Manual / SERVICING AND MAINTENANCE / VEHICLE MAINTENANCE / Air Conditioner Maintenance

For best possible performance, your air conditioner should be checked and serviced by an authorized dealer at the start of each warm season. This service should include cleaning of the condenser fins and a performance test. Drive belt tension should also be checked at this time.

WARNING!

  • Use only refrigerants and compressor lubri- cants approved by the manufacturer for your air conditioning system. Some unap- proved refrigerants are flammable and can explode, injuring you. Other unapproved refrigerants or lubricants can cause the system to fail, requiring costly repairs. Refer to Warranty Information Book, for further warranty information.
  • The air conditioning system contains refrig- erant under high pressure. To avoid risk of personal injury or damage to the system, adding refrigerant or any repair requiring lines to be disconnected should be done by an experienced technician.

CAUTION!

Do not use chemical flushes in your air conditioning system as the chemicals can damage your air conditioning components. Such damage is not covered by the New Vehicle Limited Warranty.
