While in motion, the vehicle suddenly loses power. The engine, power steering, brakes and ac unit cut out. The radio and hazard lights continue to function, as if the vehicle has entered accessory mode. This happens both at slow speeds (20-25 mph) and in highway driving (60+ mph) and any speed in between. Sometimes the event is preceded by a bump or jar in the pavement, and other times it has no apparent cause. Turning the key to the off position and restarting the car resolves the issue, however this is difficult when in the middle of traffic. In addition, on occasion, the key fob seems to have difficulty starting the ignition. It might take 3 or 4 tries before the engine turns over, despite no battery or electrical loss. These things often coincide so that you are frantically trying to restart the car in the middle of a highway. This problem occurs infrequently, the worst case of this happening is dated below, but that is not the only time.

While driving along, the vehicle shuts off. The key is in the still ignition, and I am able to put the vehicle in the neutral position and restart the vehicle. Between my wife and this event has occurred at least eight times since the vehicle was purchased. In each case the vehicle was in motion, and the shutoff has occurred on city streets as well as the highway. My 1st occurrence happened while I was turning right. I believe that the wireless ignition node(win) module is the cause of the shutoffs but it may be caused by a problem with the fuel system. Regardless of the cause, the engine shutting down while moving is a safety issue and dangerous. The appropriate recalls are: L02, L25 and R03.

Tipm module failure. Known issue with this and other Chrysler vehicles. This is the singular part which controls the entire vehicle. When I called Chrysler to see what they would do to help, they got the part expedited for delivery, but offered nothing else to assist: No help with the rental car, no price reduction on the part or the labor to repair vehicle for a known repair issue. This was my first and my last Chrysler product purchase, and I will make sure I tell as many people as I can about how much Chrysler cares about customer service, customer satisfaction and standing behind their known defective product!!

While operating vehicle it simply shuts off. No warning lights etc come on. The vehicle was manufactured on June 8, 2010 in Canada. Dealer says "no recalls" on vehicle yet NHTSA recall extends to vehicles produced to 6/17/10. Dealer could not duplicate issue and offers no assistance. Issue has only occurred shortly after starting car and is sporadic.

Driving vehicle in residential neighborhood at 35 mph, dash displayed the loss of traction warning light. I noticed, too, that the accelerator pedal wasn't working and apparently the entire engine completely shut off. All electrical components still worked including radio, navigation system, etc. I completely lost the ability to steer the vehicle as well. Had to put on my hazards. Stop. Put the vehicle in park. Turn the vehicle off. Turn it back on and it would run again.

Out of nowhere vehicle stops running, no check engine lights, but van shuts off. This has happened a dozen or so times in the last few weeks. Took the van to local shop for diagnostic test. No codes appeared, tested fuel pump and egr value, not problems there. Mechanic unable to detect issue. I've noticed other complaints online and a recall for 2010 Chrysler T&C vans, but not my vehicle (built on 9/26/2012).

Our 2010 Town and country minivan has been stalling since Q1 of 2014. We have taken it to normanden in san jose, ca numerous times to have them diagnose the problem. We have left it with them on each occasion to drive it with their diagnostic computer and they have never been able to find a code telling them what to fix. On Dec. 27 we took it back in to normanden after it stalled 19 times in the previous 7 days. We left the car with them while we were on vacation for 12 days, and asked them to have their lead mechanic drive it home every day with the computer on it to see if they could get it to fail. It did fail, but we were told that he did not have the computer on it at the time. We also were told that it did not fail for him since then with the computer on it. I just talked to our service writer [xxx], and he said again, without a code they are not able to fix the problem. They cannot try swapping parts like the main computer, because they will not get reimbursed by Chrysler, if does not fail when they send it back. My wife drives this car every day, as I do not drive. She takes me to work and baby sits our 2 beautiful grand children who live 75 miles North of us. Every time it stalls, the power steering no longer works and the power assisted breaks do not stop the car very well without a lot of pressure on the brake pedal. She has to drive in the right lane in case it stalls so she can try to coast to a safe spot to restart the car. She has almost been hit from behind which is a very scary and dangerous situation. She and I are always scared that we will be hit by someone, putting us and our grandkids in danger. I hope you can help us get these problems fixed, or a new car, before one of us is injured or killed. We will be more than happy to give you more details if you will call either my wife or me.

Appears related to NHTSA action number: DP14004 problem: Sudden unintended and uncontrollable acceleration sudden unintended acceleration of our 2010 Chrysler Town and country touring was experienced on 2 occasions (8/2/14 and 12/5/14) nearly resulting in a serious accident on each occurrence. Both incidents occurred under similar circumstances. While traveling on a freeway @ approximately 65 mph bearing left (either to change lanes or on a curve ) and accelerating, the accelerator pedal drops to the floor with uncontrolled full throttle acceleration. Braking did not stop the acceleration and emergency evasive maneuvers were required to avoid serious accidents on both occasions. Shifting in and out of neutral several times was performed and eventually the accelerator returned to normal operation. I am unsure what caused the unintended acceleration to stop. Key information identical during both incidents: 1. engine oil was changed within days of each incident. Oil change reminder counter was reset using manufacturer reset procedure. 2. left turn signal was engaged. 3. traveling at approximately 65 mph when beginning acceleration (transmission downshifted). 4. throttle position was approximately 30-40% throttle to accelerate to pass or get up to speed after a curved freeway entrance ramp. 5. vehicle had been driven for approximately 25 minutes prior to sudden acceleration on each occurrence (however in two completely separate locations). 6. this occurred on 2 occasions with 2 different drivers. 7. both incidents occurred while on a freeway. 8. duration of incidents: Approximately 10-20 seconds. This appears to be a software bug (I am an it professional and electrical engineer by degree). This needs to be fixed immediately for the safety of my family and the general public.
