While driving my 2013 Chrysler 300S on the highway the lights on my dash starting flashing. About another mile my radio shut off and would not come back on. I came upon my exit and stopped at the stop light and then my stability control and ABS light came on. I drove a little further and I heard this whining noise and a message popped up. I checked the message and it said "battery saver mode". I turned in to my neighborhood and right when I was turning the corner the car completely shut down causing me to lose control (no power steering) and no brakes. When the vehicle came to a complete stop the dashboard lit up again and the windshield wipers came on I looked at the control and they were not turned on and I could not turn them off. Eventually the wipers stopped and all power was lost, no inside lights, no radio, no touch screen, no head lights...nothing! I googled "battery saver mode" and read that it was possibly my alternator. I then saw where there was a recall for Chrysler alternators with descriptions of the same scenario that I just had, so called the recall center. I was told that my car did not fall under the recall because I did not have 160 amp (I have 180). From what I've been reading there are issues with the 180 amps also, but Chrysler has not recalled those. I was told by the recall center to hold on to my receipts for the repairs because "if and when" they do a recall on the 180 amps I can be reimbursed. Mean while those of us with the 180 amps are taking a chance on our lives! come on Chrysler you all know that these alternators are bad....180 and 160 amps!!!

The contact owns a 2013 Chrysler 300. The contact stated that the ABS warning lamp and the stability traction control warning lamps flashed randomly. The vehicle was included in NHTSA campaign number: 14V634000 (electrical system) and received the recall repair, but the failure recurred and both warning lamps illuminated. The dealer was notified of the failure and did not provide a remedy. The contact also stated that the cruise control feature failed to work after the recall repair. The manufacturer was notified of the failures. The vehicle was taken back to the authorized dealer for further inspection and diagnosis. The failure mileage was not available.

I received a notice that my 2013 Chrysler 300 was under a recall for alternator issues. I already had noticed that my vehicle warning lights had flashed the alternator with the lightning bolt twice recently. Then my cruise went out, ABS service light came on and stayed on and my traction control light came on and stayed on. The days after I reviewed the recall notice I schedule an appointment to have my car services at [xxx] in savannah ga, off abercorn St. When the service person took my car I identified the issues and he said that he will check it over to include checking the wheel sensors. Noting the wheel sensors specifically, made me a bit suspicious. Later he called me and stated that a wheel sensor went bad and it was not relational to the recall notice. He said he has the part and it would be $187 to fix it. I stated that the notice states that the wheel sensor could be impacted. He said, no sir it reads the module not the sensor and they are not close to each other. I find this technicality not fair to the consumer and I feel that this should be included in the recall. My car has 39K miles on it, is serviced regularly and has never had an issue. I find it hard to believe that the cruise, ABS, and traction control going out at the same time has nothing to do with the recall.

I entered the intersection cars were in front of me. I slightly touched my brakes and the car stalled and didn't and wouldn't get speed of exhaustion. A car came speeding the opposite direction and collided into the rear of vehicle. I contacted Chrysler recall center and they refused to take the car back or forward the call to upper management. I spoke with drake DM1915 this morning that wasn't helpful or sentimental to the issues. Very arrogant and unconcerned. I had another encounter in the snow on 02/23/2015 where I had to leave my car in my work parking lot because my brakes would not traction the road and made a noise. I'm afraid to continue drive this vehicle.
