In the 2005 Dodge Charger eight conventional spark plug cables are used with the 5.7L. These cables connect a coil on one cylinder bank, directly to a spark plug on the opposite cylinder bank. The cables are placed and routed in special plastic looms to keep them separated. These plastic looms are clipped to the intake manifold.
To prevent a miss-match of cables, a corresponding spark plug/coil number is displayed on each plug cable: 1/6, 2/3, 4/7 and 5/8. These numbers (2) and (3) can also be found on the top of the intake manifold. The following schematic illustrates the 2005 Dodge Charger LX 5.7L V-8 Engine Firing Order and Battery Cable Routing.
