Horn randomly goes off. Put car in park, take out fob, door automatically lock and alarm is set, not cannot unlock with fob, have to use key. This has been going on for several days. Picked up fob, didn't touch any buttons, alarm goes off. Turn car off, alarm goes off. Had to pull the fuse for horn, now I have no horn and the car won't unlock using the fob. This should definitely be a recall as I've seen many complaints on other websites about this issue. Also, side note, when in reverse, rear windshield wiper runs, can't turn it off.

3 days ago with the car alarm sounding in early morning. I went outside to see what had happened and there was nothing there to be concerned about. Then a few minutes later the car just stated randomly honking it horn on its own! now this is all happening while car was parked in driveway. I thought that maybe maybe it was part of the security on the car and then it stopped about 5 mins later. While still parked. Later on in the day I took the car out to do some things when it started randomly honking it own horn. This was all happening while I was on a major road. This then created a very dangerous moment because I got distracted because I couldn't figure out why the hell my car just started randomly honking it horn and it wouldn't stop for about 5 minutes. Multiple people stopped because they thought I was honking at them which caused things to get very crazy. So now I know something isn't right, so I decided to take the car back home for everyone's safety and well being.so now the car is back home and the random honking has stopped. We all went to bed, and at 12:00 pm Thursday night. It happened again while parked in driveway, it would beep and beep and then stop and beep again and then it wouldn't stop beeping and then it wouldn't stop. Now I then got really nervous because this just isn't safe and is annoying for the poor neighbors trying to sleep. So luckily about 10 mins later the honking had stopped. I went back to sleep hoping it wouldn't continue to happen. Now its Friday there hasn't been any honking for the last few hours while its been parked in driveway all night. Now through the whole Friday nothing seemed to happen until about 7:00 pm, it happened again the car started beeping its horn and this time for about 10 mins randomly during that time while it was parked. Knowing that this wasn't going to stop I took out horn fuses for now, but now I have no horn!

I have not kept track of specific dates, however I now plan on doing so. Since I've purchased this car I've had issues with it starting. Of course I take it back to the dealer where I'm told they can't find anythigng wrong with it, the second time I'm told it just needed a software update, and the third I decided to take it somewhere else. I know it's not the started, battery, alternator, or fuel pump. I've been told it has to be electrical or a software issues. Basically either Dodge knows what the issue is and is lying or they really have no idea. Either way I pay a lot to have a realiable car and it's really frustrating to go into the grocery store come out and my car doesn't want to start, or have to leave for work and end up being late because again my car decides it doesn't want to start. Each time the dealership hasn't charged me anything. I've been driving my car and the engine has just cut off. I've had my windows roll down on there own. Because this seems to be a trending issue I will now track things more carefully. I do have a video avaliable of the most recent issue: Https://youtu.be/gc7xcx263ry

I have been having trouble with my brakes which has been replaced but still grinding noise and squeaky and rotors has been turned. The vehicle has cut off many times, sitting at the traffic light and as getting ready to go and as coming to a stop. It has also cut off as turning and once I realized it I had to try to restart it. It has at times door not unlock and not lock. As putting on brake to come to a stop it shakes. The lights are getting worse they are flickering on and off. Outside light goes out and whole dash goes off while driving. I have to keep flicking the lights as I'm driving so they can come back on. The vehicle has many times not start up and just click when trying to start it.
