Locks don't work. Have to use the key fob to lock and unlock them, even then they will lock and unlock several times even though I only pushed the button once.

Takata recall. The contact owns a 2014 Chrysler 200. The contact stated that the vehicle randomly stalled several times without warning. The dealer was notified several times and was unable to replicate and diagnose the failure. As the condition continued, the vehicle was towed to the dealer where it was diagnosed that the ignition module failed. The ignition module needed to be replaced and a new key needed to be programmed to repair the vehicle. The VIN was included in NHTSA campaign number: 16V668000 (air bags). The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The failure mileage was not available. VIN tool confirms parts not available.

The tire sensor (TPMS light) for my passenger side, rear tire always says the tire pressure is low as well. It will say the tire is low, and it's always only this tire. I check the pressure with a hand gauge and all is fine. This vehicle obviously has some sort of electrical issue. I have had mulitipule issues with this car in the 19 months I have had it!

I have taken my car into the dealership to address the constant squealing of the brakes and the emergency brake indicator light randomly turning on. The dealership said there was nothing wrong with the brakes or the electrical system. The brakes are so loud and noisy that people can hear my car coming from far off, they sound like I own an old beat-up vehicle that has never been serviced. This car is brand new and should not be so embarrassingly loud each time I hit the brakes whether it's at a slow creep or on the highway. The emergency brake indicator light on the dash is also very concerning. At first the indicator light for the emergency brake would come on at the top of any hill or incline, like at the top of a ramp to enter the freeway. Now, the indicator light for the emergency brake randomly comes on at least once a day. I am afraid that one day the vehicle will try to engage the brake itself, or that my car will lock up while I am driving fast down the highway. The emergency brake has never been engaged manually by me except when I park at locations where I use the E-brake as a safety precaution. This should not happen while driving and especially if I haven't touched it. The dealership says there is nothing wrong, I beg to differ. The tire sensor for my passenger side, rear tire always says the tire pressure is low as well. It will say the tire is low about once a month, and it's always only this tire. I check the pressure with a hand gauge and all is fine. This vehicle obviously has some sort of electrical issue and the brakes are just horrid!! I would love to get rid of this vehicle but unfortunately with it being so new I am far from being able to do so. What a disappointment Chrysler!!

While driving down the highway, I had my check engine light and then a short time later my ABS light come one. My car lost power and even though you press gas pedal the engine decelerates like it is trying to shift into super low gear but not sending any power to transmission which acts like it is totally slipping (it is electronic too)! I almost got hit 4 times before getting to side of road. I shut it down. It then re-started after 5 minutes and ran fine for 5 minutes before starting the cycle again but luckily I was on the back streets and not the highway. Chrysler needs to address this before someone gets killed!

An electrical fire severely damaged my vehicle. The fire started while the vehicle was being driven. At the time of the fire no accessories were plugged in to the 12V power port. To the best of my knowledge the only accessories that were being used at the time of the incident were the A/C and the radio. The fire was extinguished by a homeowner, but the vehicle sustained heavy damage to the instrument cluster between the front seats. The car is still covered under the full manufacturers warranty, but at this point I am being told that this is not considered a warranty issue because they can not prove that the fire wasn't started by a device plugged into the 12V power port.

As I start to slow down my brake light comes on and a bell rings. The brake light will remain on for about a half mile and sometimes longer.
