The check engine (gas cap) warning light came on. Then I was backing out of our driveway, stopped to put garage door down and the vehicle quit (while in reverse and it was idling). The vehicle started right up when I put it in park but then quit again approximately 2 hours later when I was pulling into a parking space. We took it into a dealership in nampa and they stated that they fixed the problem with the check engine light but they did not know why the vehicle quit. They informed us that there was a recall on the ignition switch and that could be the problem but parts to fix it were not available. I called Chrysler and they told me parts may be available in September. I am afraid to drive the vehicle because we live in a remote mountain area and if the vehicle quits, I will not have power brakes or power steering when driving along the river on a very curvy, treacherous road. I cannot afford to leave the vehicle parked until parts are available at an apparently unknown date. Chrysler did suggest that I have the ignition replaced and they may or may not reimburse me. The dealership said the parts they currently have may or may not fix the problem. Can you please tell me what you would suggest" what happens if the vehicle quits and there is an accident? is Chrysler and/or the dealership liable for any injury and/or damages" thank you.

Engine suddenly stops, all lights on dashboard come on, unable to steer properly and control vehicle...breaking doesn't work well either when this happens..on occassion I have been able to re-start the engine immediately but the check engine light comes on and stays on for a few days. Has happened while driving, while parked, while idling in traffic...I only have the ignition key in use I do not have a heavy key chain. Extremely scary when this has happened on interstate!! please let me know if there is a fix for this problem. I have taken it to a shop several times and they cannot find anything and tell me there are no recalls on my vehicle.

When driving my transmission would be stuck in a gear sometimes and other times it would shift to neutral while on city roads and highways. This would happen mostly when accelerating when the automatic transmission had to shift to the next gear. It wouldn't or would go to neutral so I had to shift the transmission back and forth from neutral to drive to catch a gear. I read about a recall back in 2013 but Chrysler said it did not apply to my vehicle so I paid to get the problem fixed. Since Chrysler is currently having recall problems I'm curious to find out if this was something that wasn't reported.

I was driving down the road and all of my dash lights came on, the heater and radio stopped working and my Jeep seemed to be stalling out. I was driving down a road where I was unable to pull over. The car behind me almost rear ended me because of this. This same problem has happened almost on a daily bases. I first thought it had something to do with the new key I had made but then I came to find out about the ignition switch recall. I can't believe that there still is not a part to fix this issue. I really can't believe that Jeep does not think that this is a safety issue. I am afraid to drive my Jeep very far at all. I have not been able to go on any long trips this summer in fact I had to stay home on my vacation as this is the only car I have. I can't afford to buy another car as I am still making payments on this one and no one will even think about buying it because of this issue. Is it going to take someone to die before anything is done about this. If I had known about this problem I would have never bought my Jeep.

While driving the gear lights on the dash will all have a square around them. When it does this the truck becomes in neutral, and is unable to accelerate. This has happened numerous times since we purchased it in Feb 2015. This is quite dangerous and luckily we have not had an accident.
