INTRODUCTION
The Police Uptter’s Guide has been prepared with the assistance of service and engineering specialists to assist vehicle
uptters in achieving the highest standards of safety and quality in their products.
This guide is divided into topics pertinent to uptters of police vehicles. References are made to the 2006 Dodge Charger
and Magnum Service Manual for appropriate service procedures, torques specications, component separation clearances, and other standard information that is common with the unmodied vehicle.
The Police Uptter’s Guide does not provide information on how to remove, install, or repair vehicle parts or equipment.
This guide must be used as a reference to help ensure that certain important steps in the modication process have
been considered. DaimlerChrysler Corporation provides this information only to assist the uptters, and does not warrant
the products, procedures, materials, or the workmanship of the uptters. DaimlerChrysler Corporation does not provide
warranty coverage against failures that result from modication of the vehicle.
Following the guidelines contained in this guide does not assure the individual uptters that the products they modify
comply with the U.S. Federal or Canadian Motor Vehicle Safety Standards in effect at the time of the modication. The
guidelines set forth are based on engineering analyses of the typical police vehicles. If followed, the uptter’s efforts in
certifying vehicles to applicable standards should be aided. Compliance testing that may be required for certication of
specic vehicle congurations or constructions is, however, the sole responsibility of the individual modier.

VEHICLE MODIFICATION
INFORMATION CONCERNING UNITED STATES AND CANADA SAFETY STANDARDS
DaimlerChrysler Corporation has prepared the following information for persons who intend to modify the 2006 Dodge
Charger or Dodge Magnum police prep package vehicles.
The vehicle modier or alterer is responsible for re-certifying the modied vehicle as altered pursuant to Title 49 of the
Code of Federal Regulations S567.7 and S568.6 in the United States or to Section 9 of the Canadian Motor Safety
Regulations in Canada. A vehicle modier is a person or company who modies a previously certied vehicle other than
by the addition, substitution or removal of readily attachable components. Upon completion of the modied vehicle, the
vehicle modier is required by law to certify that it continues to comply with all applicable Federal and Canada Motor
Vehicle Safety Standards/Regulations. In addition, the modied vehicle must continue to comply with all applicable
Federal, Canada and/or California Emissions regulations. In the United States, sale of a non-complying new vehicle
is illegal and is punishable by a ne of up to $27,500 (Federal) and $5,000 (California) per vehicle for emissions noncompliance, $1,000 per vehicle for safety non-compliance, plus recall and other sanctions. Other penalties apply in
Canada.
This material is for informational purposes only and sets forth some general observation on this subject. Dealers and/or
vehicle modiers should seek assistance from the legal counselor of their choice to aid them in understanding their specic obligations. Specic questions concerning compliance and/or certication to safety standards and emissions and
related (e.g. fuel economy) regulations should be directed to the vehicle modiers legal counsel or the United States National Highway Trafc Safety Administration (Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards and Federal Economy Standards
and Requirements), the Canada Department of Transport/Transport Canada (Canada Motor Vehicle Safety/Regulations,
including emissions and noise regulations), Industry Canada (Interference-Causing Equipment Standards), the United
States Environmental Protection Agency (United States emissions and fuel vapor requirements) or The California Air
Resources Board (California emissions and fuel vapor requirements).
DaimlerChrysler Corporation makes no representations with regard to conformity of the modied vehicle to any Federal or Canadian Motor Vehicle Safety Standards/Regulations that may be affected by the vehicle modication; it is the
responsibility of the vehicle modier to certify that the vehicle conforms to any standards affected by the vehicle modication. Additional information concerning United States Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards and Canada Motor
Vehicle Safety Regulations is provided in the current 2006 Dodge Truck Body Builder’s Guide CD-ROM.
The vehicles listed in the following table will conform to the safety standards noted above provided the following conditions are satised:
The altered vehicle’s unloaded vehicle weight does not exceed the value designated in the table corresponding to the
vehicle’s model and engine size. “Unloaded vehicle weight”, as dened in the Title 49 Code of Federal Regulations,
Part 571.3, means “the weight of a vehicle with maximum capacity of all uids necessary for operation of the vehicle,
but without cargo or occupants”, and following alteration it still conforms to all applicable Federal Motor Vehicle
Safety Standards (or Canadian Motor Vehicle Safety Standards).

NEW VEHICLE STORAGE
If a vehicle is not immediately delivered to the customer, store the vehicle according to the following guidelines:
1. If possible, store the vehicle indoors, in a clean and dry place. If vehicles must be stored outside;
• Avoid storage locations near obvious sources of industrial or environmental contamination (such as, trees, factories, steam or vapor vents, railroad tracks, etc.)
• Maintain tight security to help prevent vandalism. Inspect the vehicle regularly to check for such damage.
• If the vehicle must be parked on an incline, park it with the front end higher than the rear. This prevents hydrostatic
lock caused by fuel draining into the engine.
• Rinse the vehicle at least once a week. Wash away the snow more often since it can trap harmful contaminants.
Dry all horizontal surfaces.
2. Remove the IOD fuse to prevent battery drain and possible damage.
3. Check the engine coolant and anti-freeze protection.
WARNING: THE BATTERY IN THIS VEHICLE HAS A VENT HOSE THAT SHOULD NOT BE DISCONNECTED
AND SHOULD ONLY BE REPLACED WITH A BATTERY OF THE SAME TYPE (VENTED).
4. Check the vehicle battery at least once a month for proper charge (at least 12.4 volts). Charge the battery as necessary to help prevent freezing and deterioration. Always make sure that the battery vent tube is properly connected
to the battery and to the oor pan.
5. Check the vehicle tires and inate them to the maximum recommended levels. To avoid at spotting, move the
vehicle at least once a month so that a different portion of the tire tread contacts the ground.
6. Leave the parking brake in the OFF position.
7. Keep all windows closed, all doors locked, and all trim covers intact and in place.
8. Do not use chalk, crayon or any marker containing abrasives on painted, plated, or glass surfaces.
9. Use protective thin plastic lm to avoid soiling seats when moving a vehicle.

ELECTRICAL BASICS
A vehicle uses electricity to make some of its systems and components work. The electricity in a vehicle is produced by
the alternator, which can be compared with a water pump. As a water pump moves the water molecules, the alternator
moves the electrons. As a water pump pushes a certain amount of water molecules, the alternator pushes a certain
amount of electrons, and as a water pump pushes the water molecules with a certain pressure, the alternator pushes
the electrons with a certain pressure. The amount of electrons pushed by the alternator is called amperage, and the
“pressure” is called voltage. Electricity is distributed to the battery and to various components through a network of
conductors called a wiring harness. The same way the water is pushed through pipes, is the same way the electrons
are pushed through metallic conductors called wires. As the pipe diameter limits the number of water molecules that
can travel at any given point, the size of the wire limits the amount of the electrons that can travel at any given point.
In 1827 Georg Simon Ohm published what is called today Ohm’s law. According to Ohm’s law, the relation between
voltage (V), amperage (I), and the resistance (R) encountered by the electricity while traveling through conductors is V
= I x R. The rate at which a device converts the electricity to a different form of energy (visual, acoustical, mechanical,
or hydraulic) is called power, and is measured in watts. An equation that expresses the relationship between volts (V),
amperes (A), and watts (W), is V x A = W. This equation is necessary when making calculations for making proper and
safe electrical installation of new equipment and new wiring harnesses in a vehicle. For example to calculate the current
needed by an amplier rated at 120W, use the equation as follows: 12V x A = 120W, => A = 120W/12V, => A = 10.
ALTERNATOR OUTPUT
The amount of direct current produced by the alternator is controlled by the electronic voltage regulator (EVR) (eld
control) circuitry contained within the powertrain control module (PCM). The PCM uses the inlet air temperature sensor
or ambient temperature sensor to control the charge system voltage. This temperature, along with data from monitored
line voltage, is used by the PCM to vary the battery charging rate. The system voltage is higher at cold temperatures and
is gradually reduced as the calculated battery temperature increases. The ambient temperature sensor is used to control
the battery voltage based upon ambient temperature (approximation of battery temperature). The PCM maintains the
optimal output of the generator by monitoring battery voltage and controlling it to a range of 13.5 - 14.7 volts based on
battery temperature.
The amperage rating of the Dodge Charger and Magnum police vehicles alternator is 160A full output, and 135A max
idle at SAE standard of 27°C (80°F). The alternator output capacity depends on the engine speed and the temperature
in the engine compartment as follows:
NOTE: If the voltage drops under 12V while the engine idles, the PCM automatically increases the engine speed
to 1200 RPM in order to increase the charging voltage.

INSTALLING ADDITIONAL ELECTRICAL EQUIPMENT
Prior to determining what equipment is to be installed into the police vehicle, assess the power demands of the equipment
as well as the power available from the vehicle. To reduce the risk of running out of power, develop a power load strategy
as follows:
• Add up the current requirements of all the pieces of equipment to be installed onto a police vehicle.
• Compare the total current requirements with the vehicle’s current producing capability while taking into consideration the current needs of regular vehicle equipment such as A/C, headlamps, parking lamps, wipers, etc.
If the police equipment current requirements exceed what the vehicle is expected to provide, the battery begins to discharge in order to provide power to the equipment that cannot be provided by the generator. After some time, the vehicle
shuts off as the battery voltage level drops under the minimum voltage required to keep the engine running.
To minimize electrical system overload, consider the current requirements of the equipment before it is purchased and
installed. For example, the radios and the light bars built using the most recent technology use substantially less current
than those built using technology that is 8-10 years old. Also the habits of the police ofcer while using the vehicle can
2-3
ELECTRICAL
2006 Police Uptter’s Guide
make a difference in the current consumption as well. For example, turning the A/C (the largest non-police equipment
current user) off while the empty vehicle is sitting at the scene of an accident with the lights ashing until the ofcer
returns, makes more power available for lights and for other police equipment.

VEHICLE MODIFICATIONS
It is imperative that all occupant restraint system components remain in their original location and orientation.
Any modication, removal, or relocation of components may be detrimental to the occupant restraint system
performance and is prohibited. Any vehicle modication that may affect the occupant restraint system characteristics should be veried through vehicle calibration/impact testing.
OCCUPANT RESTRAINT SYSTEM WIRING
All occupant restraint system wiring must remain intact and may not be used for any other purpose. This includes the
driver and front passenger seat wiring. Any electrical connector that is yellow is part of the occupant restraint system
and should not be modied or used for other purposes.
OCCUPANT RESTRAINT SYSTEM VERIFICATION
After any modication work is complete, conrm the occupant restraint system readiness as follows:
Turn the ignition key to the ON position. The airbag lamp in the instrument cluster illuminates for 6 to 8 seconds,
and then turn off. If the airbag lamp fails to illuminate, repeatedly cycles on and off, or does not turn off, have the
condition corrected by an authorized DaimlerChrysler Corporation dealership before shipping the vehicle to the
customer.

The holes (C) are 4.41 mm (0.17 in.) in diameter and can be threaded for end of bracket attachments.
ROOF MOUNTED EQUIPMENT
If the vehicle is equipped with side curtain airbags, take care when installing equipment in the roof area to avoid drilling
or installing fasteners in the side curtain airbags area. Also make sure that no equipment installed inside the vehicle
interferes with the airbag deployment areas. If additional wiring needs to be routed on the sides of the roof, take care so
the installed harness does not impede the airbag deployment. Point fasteners used to attach roof mounted equipment
outward from the passenger compartment to minimize risk of head injury and not alter the head impact protection system
(FMVSS 201) that is standard on these vehicles. Do not allow fasteners to extend into the passenger compartment, even

SIDE IMPACT SENSORS
If the vehicle is equipped with side curtain airbags, 4 side impact sensors are mounted inside the vehicle. The location
and the orientation of the side impact sensors are critical for correct operation of the occupant restraint system. Do not
use the side impact sensor mounting screws as equipment mounting attachment points.
An impact sensor is mounted on the inside of each B-pillar
beneath the trim panel.

SEAT BELTS
All 5 seat belts are equipped with seat belt retractors. The position, orientation, and the mounting bolt torque value are
critical for correct operation of the seat belt retractors. Do not move any seat belt mounting point and do not use the
seat belt bolts to install equipment. When installing equipment make sure that no interference with the seat belts exist
when they are in use. If any of the seat belt mounting bolts are temporarily removed make sure that they are reinstalled
properly and that the bolts are tightened to correct torque value. For torque values and complete removal and installation
of the seat belts information, refer to the 06 Dodge Charger and Magnum Service Manual.
PRISONER PARTITION
If installation of a prisoner partition is intended, the vehicle
in question needs to be ordered without left and right side
curtain airbags. Installing a prisoner partition is not recommended on vehicles equipped with left and right side curtain airbags, as the prisoner partition may interfere with
airbag deployment. Make sure the area where the side
curtain airbag is located remains free from any obstructions.
NOTE: Left side airbag deployed shown, right side
airbag similar.
Make sure the prisoner partition does not interfere with the passenger seat and with the seat belt retractors. Once
installed, make sure that the prisoner partition does not restrict the front seats and the seat belt operation. In addition,
the prisoner partition must block the access to the front passenger seat tracks by a person sitting in the back seat.

SEATS
WARNING: IF EQUIPPED WITH OCCUPANT CLASSIFICATION SYSTEM (OCS), THE SEAT WEIGHT SENSOR IS A
SENSITIVE, CALIBRATED UNIT AND MUST BE HANDLED CAREFULLY. DO NOT DROP OR HANDLE ROUGHLY.
IF DROPPED OR DAMAGED, REPLACE WITH ANOTHER SENSOR. FAILURE TO DO SO MAY RESULT IN OCCUPANT INJURY OR DEATH.
WARNING: IF EQUIPPED WITH OCS, THE FRONT PASSENGER SEAT MUST BE HANDLED CAREFULLY AS
WELL. WHEN REMOVING THE SEAT, BE CAREFUL WHEN SETTING ON FLOOR NOT TO DROP. IF DROPPED,
THE SENSOR MAY BE INOPERATIVE, COULD RESULT IN OCCUPANT INJURY, OR POSSIBLY DEATH.
WARNING: IF EQUIPPED WITH OCS, WHEN THE PASSENGER FRONT SEAT IS ON THE FLOOR, NO ONE
SHOULD SIT IN THE FRONT PASSENGER SEAT. THIS UNEVEN FORCE MAY DAMAGE THE SENSING ABILITY
OF THE SEAT WEIGHT SENSORS. IF SAT ON AND DAMAGED, THE SENSOR MAY BE INOPERATIVE, COULD
RESULT IN OCCUPANT INJURY, OR POSSIBLY DEATH.
When installing additional equipment around the front seats, consider the following restrictions:
•
•
•
•
•
•
Make sure no equipment is installed or attached to the passenger seat.
No seat modications of any type are permitted.
Make sure that no weight is added to the passenger seat.
Make sure that no equipment interferes with the seats when the seating position is adjusted.
Maintain 10–12 mm (0.4-0.5 in) of clearance around the passenger seat.
Do not use the seat mounting bolts to attach any piece of equipment. If the seats are removed from the vehicle,
tighten the seat bolts to the appropriate torque value specied in the 06 Dodge Charger and Magnum Service
Manual.
FUEL LINES AND TANK
The fuel and the brake lines (1) are routed under the right side oor pan area. To avoid fuel and brake line damage, take
care when drilling or installing fasteners on the oor pan area.
The fuel tank (2) is located underbody under the rear seat area. Installation of self-tapping fasteners or drilling in the
oor pan under the back seat area is not permitted.
To avoid fuel tank ller tube (3) and vapor canister (4) damage, take care when drilling or installing fasteners in the left
and right rear inner wheelhouse areas.

VEHICLE UNDERBODY
BELLY PANS
The Dodge Charger and Magnum are equipped with 6 underbody shield panels. Removal of these panels may alter the
vehicle functions and is not recommended.
SKID PLATES
Additional skid plates can obstruct the air ow under the vehicle and may alter the vehicle functions.
DRIVESHAFT CLEARANCE
Always consider the clearance between the underbody sheet metal and the driveshaft when installing any equipment in
the driveshaft tunnel area.
FRONT GRILL AREA
FRONT BUMPER
If the front bumper and bumper mounting system are removed temporarily, reinstall the front bumper and bumper mounting system in accordance with the instructions provided in the 06 Dodge Charger and Magnum Service Manual. The
front bumper and bumper mounting system cannot be replaced with parts other than OEM. The crash sensing of the
front airbag systems is tuned, in part, to the front bumper. Retain the original front bumper system (beam, brackets
and fascia). Modications, deletions or additions to the front bumper (i.e. pushbars, bullbars, bumper-mounted bicycle
racks, etc) are not recommended as they may change the crash sensitivity and protection of the frontal impact inatable
occupant restraint system.
Reduced air ow through the radiator grille could put additional strain on the engine cooling system, reduce the engine
performance, and shorten the operational life of related components.
HEADLAMPS MOUNTING CROSSMEMBER
The headlamps mounting crossmember is a critical component of the body structure and cannot be replaced with parts
other than OEM. No drilling or any other modication of the headlamps mounting crossmember is permitted. Any modication including welding or drilling of the headlamps mounting crossmember may reduce its strength and alter its
intended deformation in event of a vehicle crash.

FRONT IMPACT SENSORS
Two front impact sensors are installed on the Dodge
Charger and Magnum, one each for the left and right
sides of the vehicle. Each front impact sensor is mounted
with two screws to the backs of the right and left vertical
members of the radiator support within the engine
compartment. The location and the orientation of the
front impact sensors are critical for correct operation
of the occupant restraint system. Do not use the front
impact sensor mounting screws as equipment mounting
attachment points.
NOTE: Right front impact sensor shown, left front
impact sensor similar.
SIREN AND GRILLE LIGHTS
Proper air ow through the radiator grille area needs to be maintained in order to keep the engine cooling system operating at its intended capacity. When installing any additional equipment such as sirens or additional lights, make sure
that the air ow through the radiator grille is not obstructed by any equipment.
Reduced air ow through the radiator grille could put additional strain on the engine cooling system, reduce the engine
performance, and shorten the operational life of related components.
