L25 recall. Ignition failed three times no parts to fix yet. No other keys on fob last time it turned off. Key is loose in the ignition (per the local Chrysler service mgr). Engine turned off three times while drive without touching the key. Happened three time at different speeds first time at 45 miles per hour car just stopped in the middle of the road.. once faster, once slower. My 22 year old daughter was driving the car all three times. All the lights on the dash come on and she said the steering would not work and the brakes did not work. She called crying the first time from the middle of the road did not know what to do. Engine had stopped. (no codes showed on diagnostic computer when dealer charged for the diagnostic) she ended up in the middle of the road stopped. Engine did restart all three times. Local Chrysler dealer could not get to duplicate even though the said they drove car 4 or 5 times. (even though they said they drove it 4 or 5 times, no miles were put one the van while in the dealership. Even the $115 diagnostic charge from the dealership showed no miles were put on the van). They charged because they said they could not confirm it was the L25 recall which they have no parts to fix yet. The local Chrysler dealer said they ran a diagnostic for $115 that showed no computer codes which the service manager said sounds like the ignition recall symptoms, but still charged me because they could not get it to duplicate at the dealership.(I did not know a safety recall had to be duplicated to get work done without charging) the local chyrsler dealership said that it should be safe to keep driving, they could not find anything wrong with it. My 22 daughter is scared to death of the van but is having to keep driving it.

My wife was driving out of our subdivision and stopped at the stop sign exiting our subdivision. All of the instrument cluster warning lights came on and the engine stopped. She turned the key (fobik) to the off position and then re-started the vehicle and promptly drove home and parked the vehicle and took our other vehicle to complete her errand. I talked to the Chrysler dealership and Chrysler customer service, and they said they have no parts for recall L25 (ignition switch). We received our notification last fall for the L25 ignition switch recall, now it is March of 2015 going into the 8th month after this recall was made official, and we still are waiting for a safe resolution. Now we view the operation of this vehicle as a safety liability.
