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.

Out of nowhere vehicle stops running, no check engine lights, but van shuts off. This has happened a dozen or so times in the last few weeks. Took the van to local shop for diagnostic test. No codes appeared, tested fuel pump and egr value, not problems there. Mechanic unable to detect issue. I've noticed other complaints online and a recall for 2010 Chrysler T&C vans, but not my vehicle (built on 9/26/2012).

Van unexpectedly shut down completely. Idle at red stop light, noticed traction control sensor was stuck on even though road conditions were normal, no rain, no snow so didn't think much of it. Seconds past, stop light turned green, went to drive via giving the car gas and nothing happened, brakes weren't being recognized, steering was extremely tight. Realized at that point that the van completely shut down (in drive! ignition on!) was able to coast to the side. Turned ignition to off, restarted. Now afraid to drive because I don't understand what happened. I could have totally been rear ended since this happened so suddenly. I was lucky to not be on a major street or roadway. Now I am getting no answers from Chrysler Corp. I feel its part of this revised L25 recall I seen on NHTSA.

Driving my Town and country Chrysler minivan full of girl scouts and the engine shutoff without warning. A car came very close to hitting us. I put on my hazards and pulled over in order to put the van in park and restart the van. We could have been severely injured if the car behind me had hit us.

Chrysler has issued a recall for many of there 2009-2011 Town and country's. because of the wireless node being bad which make the key flop around in the ignition. However there is another side to that same ignition it can also lock in the on position causing you not to be able to shut the car off or remove the key from the ignition it will also cause the key end to break off in the ignition I have read many blogs were this is happening to thousands of people and now it has just happened to me. I feel this is a major safety issue because your not able to deenergize the power in the car. I have and so have thousand of other people have called Chrysler to have this problem resolved and get some help with the outrageous cost incurred to repair a major known issue that Chrysler knows about. Unfortunately we have all been told well its not our problem by Chrysler. This is a major problem because it renders the car totally useless undrivable if the key breaks in the ignition.

We were driving at about 20-25 mph, and the car stalled in the street and the electronic stability control light came on. We put the vehicle in park, and re-started the van. The van worked fine for about three days and did it again. It has done this a total of 5 times in the last month.

Several times while in normal driving conditions, the engine simply shut off. No power steering, no power brakes. Luckily there was no traffic behind us. We wiggled the ignition key and the engine started back up. This has happened to me twice in the last month and to my wife numerous time over the past couple of months.

The engine just shuts off without warning. Sometimes it will restart immediately, sometimes it just cranks for a min, then kicks over and runs rough eventually smoothing out. We have noticed the key is rotating out of the on position, sometimes fully into acc, sometimes just a little out of on. 2 dealers have looked at it, but the computer doesn't log any codes and they cant replicate the issue, so the mechanics can't fix anything. This falls inline with the L25 recall issues. This van was built 2 weeks after the L25 recall stops. I have found the parts online for under $20 but cannot replace them as the computer needs programmed. This vehicle is dangerous to us and everyone else on the road around us as we have no power steering or power brakes.

This incident has happened several times. Car stalls while driving at any speed. It will then restart immediately. This is a dangerous situation and almost caused a couple of wrecks. Chrysler says there are no recalls on this vehicle and hard to diagnose. Yet on other 2010S 4.0 vehicles there are recalls for the exact same problem.
