I was traveling back to los angeles, ca from sedona, AZ. It had been raining off/on all day. Sometimes lightly and often times very heavy with wake water coming off of other cars and trucks on a very busy ca highway. My windshield wipers completely stopped working during heavy downpour twice. Had to crawl off the freeway while unable to see because of no wipers. Had to wait at least 15 minutes before they would work again after the first failure. Was able to travel using the delayed intermittent sequence until rain got too heavy. When switched to faster wiping after ten minutes wipers stopped again. Luckily again I was able to crawl to the side of the road, and I waited for the rain to stop. I have not had this happen before and I have driven long and short distances in the rain. Another issue is I have had on three different occasions over the last year and 1/2, the car shut off/stall while waiting at red lights, and once while the car was moving it started to stall. At no time did the engine malfunction light, or electrical light come on or stay on. I was told by Chrysler technicians/mechanics that unless the light stays on they can't diagnose the problem. Otherwise the failure had to be duplicated, I.e, have to occur in the presence of the technicians. Well you know how that goes. I understand that my car was not part the 08V152000 recall, but this situation is dangerous. Please help.

TL-the contact owns a 2008 Chrysler Sebring. The contact stated that while waiting at a stop light he noticed that the engine would rev unexpectedly and that it would also stall without any warning. The vehicle was inspected by a dealer and they advised him that the battery had failed and needed to be replaced. The vehicle was repaired for the battery, but they were unable to duplicate the stalling of the vehicle. The failure mileage was approximately 4,000. The VIN was unavailable.
