Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

On Sept. 28, 2015, the vehicle was being driven on a local road at approximately 45 mph. The following lights became illuminated on the dashboard, esp/bas and then the voltage or volt light came on and then the vehicle stalls out. The vehicle will restart. After getting the vehicle going again, it stalled out several more times including a major highway and crossing a bridge at 50 mph. The vehicle was taken to the Chrysler dealer and was there for a week and a half with nothing being diagnosed as a problem with it stalling out. The following codes were stored in the computer. P1618, P1628 & P0441. The vehicle did stall out four times while driving to the dealer. There was a near miss collision as I was almost rear ended when making a right turn to merge into a traffic lane. The vehicle stalled out and I had to drift to the shoulder.

My Chrysler 300 touring began to stall any time I refueled in winter months. When I brought the car into the dealer they replaced the "vapor canister purge valve". that solved the problem temporarily. When the problem resurfaced I brought the car back to the same dealer and was told it now was a valve in the fuel tank and the entire fuel tank would need to be replaced. Cost of replacement was about $2500. The service tech said just don't fill up the tank to avoid the problem. I have been doing that in the winter ever since but last night after refueling it was fine until I was driving around traffic circle and the engine began to stall and I almost got rear ended by another car entering the traffic circle behind me. This seems to be a problem with a large number of these Chrysler vehicles. I have a hard time believing there hasn't been a recall on these vehicles for this issue!

After refueling, the car started and then died. I restarted and then pulled away. It died again at the two following stops. It then died while driving down a hill at 15 mph. All of this occurred within 2 miles of refueling. The vehicle restarted following each event. After parking the car for several hours the problem was gone. A similar episode happened the next time I refueled as well.

Once getting off the interstate and turning onto a frontage road, driving 35 mph my car lost power and stalled. I pulled onto the side of the road, turned my car off, and it turned back on. However, this problem has been occurring off and on since August 2013 (7-8xs). It most commonly stalls after filling up with gas. The steering wheel will often times become locked when trying to make a turn when the car stalls. The esp/bas light, check engine light, and a red light with a lightening bolt with vertical lines on each side of it (symbol not in Chrysler manual) all turn on when the car stalls. The car stalls 3-4xs before making it to the destination. I have brought my car in to an automotive repair shop 3xs and leave without any explanation of the current problem.
