We purchased this vehicle used and have had no major issues with it. Recently, at low speeds (less than 35mph) the vehicle will stop running. The indications are: -car is moving from but slows without braking because power is not being supplied to make the car go. -the tachometer drops to zero, because the engine is not running. -the ets (electronic traction system) light turns on -vehicle is harder to steer because power steering is not available when engine is not running. The remedy is to: -pull over, put in park and start from the get go. -pop the vehicle into neutral and start on the go I noticed there was an open recall on this vehicle to replace the wim (NHTSA campaign number: 14V373000) with one of the symptoms being the ignition key inadvertently moves to the accessory or off position while running. I took it in to our local Dodge dealer and they performed the recall for us. Within a few days, the exact same thing was happening. So we took it back. The same dealer did the following: -cleared the computer codes to have a clean capture -updated our PCM, apparently there was an flash upgrade. We drove it over the weekend, things seemed fine. But then, it did it again. Twice in the span of about 20 minutes. I took it back to the dealer to see what the codes were. Now they have determined: -the tpim is the problem -and the inverter is throwing codes too, so that probably needs replaced. I paid them for the diagnostic and told them I'm going to sit on this pending $1500 repair. After doing some web research I found out that Chrysler vehicles with a tpim problem seems to be common place, yet there has been a small recall for certain vehicles. I am mostly posting this "complaint" to help get a recall issued and to set up a situation where I can get reimbursed, should I go ahead with the fix and a recall is issued
