It began with the front wipers coming on (as if it was raining) on a sunny day.. and the switch wouldn't shut it off. Have to pull the fuse to get them to stop. Then this progressed into not cranking, as if dead battery. I believe my problem is in the keyless switch.. as the battery is new, and I've had both battery and alternator checked. Both ok!

When driving, the engine switch turns off without warning while driving on a street. This is very dangerous. There is a recall with selected VIN numbers with this issue but not ours. The recall is Chrysler recall R03 (formerly L25). We would like our VIN number to be added to the recall list.

Vehicle stalls between 20-40 mph on city streets and the traction icon comes on. Power steering immediately goes out and the vehicle must be pulled over and restarted. Problem was very intermittent when it first appeared 3/31/18 but now happens on almost every trip, typically near the beginning of the trip (11/21/18). Mechanic has failed to replicate, diagnose, or fix the problem.

First problem is the drivers side back door does not open. It stopped working electronically and manually as well as the window. The lights on the dash flicker off and on, radio turns on and off, the van door dings, and it dies while slowing down or even when driving. It happens in town or on the highway

Stalling problems: Vehicle stalls out at stop lights and coming to stops in traffic on highway. The vehicle would re-started after putting in neutral. The car has stalled when slowing down and making left hand turns. This is very dangerous crossing through the intersection and not knowing if your vehicle will stall out or not. It is becoming more frequent, it happened 5 times on the one trip. I thought I purchased a really good used vehicle, and I think someone just passed on their problems to me. My husband's friend replaced the egr and it stopped doing it for a few days and then started stalling again. So I parked it for a few weeks. This past Friday I took to the mechanic. The mechanic road tested vehicle with scan tool, performed data scan. No codes present/active or stored. They performed complete fuel injection/combustion chamber fuel service. Cleaned throttle plate area. Cleaned combustion chamber. Added fuel system cleaner to fuel tank to clean fuel injectors. Replaced spark plug wires and all spark plugs, erased memory, then re-test drove with scan tool, ok at that time. They advised us that they were unable to duplicate the stalling concern at that time. On Saturday I picked up and it hesitated when going through the intersection, but otherwise seemed ok. On Sunday stalled out at the two red lights in town, but restarted ok. Then after driving on the highway for a half hour, at the exit it stalled at stop sign and did not want to restart - 3 tries before I could get it going. So displeased with this vehicle, and I am worried about driving my daughter and nieces around in it! I wish someone would just tell us what is wrong so we can get it fixed.

Ever since Chrysler issued a recall and replaced the ignition the car stalls while driving down the road. All power is lost and we have to pull over and hope the car starts. Usually it does however sometimes it requires a jump start. It's not a bad battery! I have had it tested and I continued to use the same battery to this day. Over a one year time I have logged probably 50 stall events. Moisture humidity seems to make it worse. Learned this when I moved from Maine to tucson. But now it's stalling a lot here in tucson although it is monsoon season. The dealership said it was due to the weight of keys hanging from the ignition key, the problem is I bought the car new and have never had anything attached to the ignition key. I only carry the ignition key by itself. Nice try Chrysler, but you are wrong. I need to state this stalling problem did not occur until Chrysler issued a recall to prevent stalling instructing the dealership to replace the keys and ignition. Chrysler says it''s my problem I need to pay to fix, I say they created the problem and need to pay to fix. Maybe the ntsb should investigate! didn't GM have a problem like this?

While driving, the engine cut out and I lost power to steering and brakes. The traction control light then came on when I finally pulled over. After resetting, the vehicle started and drove normally. If this happened on a busy road, serious injury would have occurred to the passengers in my vehicle and anyone else I would have struck due to loss of control.

I have 2010 Town and country that has a intermittent cranking problem. I have taken it to two Chrysler dealers and they have kept it for several days and then they tell me they can't find the problem, the dealers say when they have the van hooked up to their diagnosed machine the test does not duplicate. All cranking issues are happening at home and when we are out and about, the van does shut off sometimes after cranking. We have taken van to dealer for a recall that we received pertaining to wireless ignition nod.the fix did not resolve the cranking problem. This cranking issue happens when engine is cold or hot, no lights come on instrument and no codes are stored to help find the problem. The two dealers have checked battery, starter, all grounds, fuel pump relay, fues, any thing they could think of, still no fix. This has been going for two years, please help, mr CEO of Chrysler please help your owners of your vehicles.

Approximately two months ago the 2010 T&C began being sluggish to start. We replaced the battery and it started fine. A week after it began to stall with the dash lights turning on and off. A day or two later it began to stall and turned off in traffic. The battery has been checked and it is functioning - the local mechanic performed a diagnostic test and no code was present. Currently it had stalled and turned off several times - extremely stressful and dangerous.

I see many complaints on NHTSA regarding Town & Country vehicles with electrical problems, with many related to car not starting, or car stalling. We have sent emails to Chrysler asking for help with how to fix this issue. This is our 3rd Chrysler vehicle. We are happy with the brand but are losing faith because our mechanic/dealer cannot solve the problem specifically, our 2010 Chrysler T&C minivan has trouble starting when it is hot (temperature outside or when car has been running a long time). We have replaced the battery, and had our dealer and an independent mechanic try to figure out what is wrong and how to fix it, without success. We have performed the electrical key ignition recall. Please ask Chrysler to solve the problem and tell dealers (and everyone) how to fix it thank you

The van will lose all power no matter the speed. This has happened on numerous occasions within the past year. Will have to stop turn van off, then restart. Sometimes takes longer than others but has restarted and will happen again after a little while for no reason. This needs to be fixed before something more serious happens. Please fix this. My families life does matter and so does others>>>....
