While in motion on a highway everything shut down. No spedometer, no tv, no windows, no blinkers, no ac, no brake lights, no headlights. Everything that was electrical was off. The engine was still running. All warning lights were on the dash and it also said no bus,

The contact owns a 2013 Chrysler Town and country. While driving at various speeds, the accelerator pedal was depressed but the vehicle failed to accelerate and the interior lights failed without warning. The contact stated that on a separate occasion the lift gate button was depressed but the lift gate failed to close and had to be closed manually. The vehicle was taken to the dealer where it was not diagnosed or repaired. The manufacturer was not made aware of the failure. The failure mileage was approximately 15,555....updated 02/03/16

There are about 10 to 12 times that I have tried to engage my cruise control and it would not come on. The only way that I could get to come as it should, was to pull off the road and cut the engine off and restart it and it would most likely start to work. I just wonder what else is not working when this happen. I did call cryrsler and report it as well as had the dealership make a note on his work sheet. I have not received a call from anyone. Thank you for your help

"last March I was driving on highway in rush hour, 60 ? 65 mph. Van shuts off, breaks do not work, and steering wheel is locked. All I could do is wait until the van coasted to a stop; I put it in park and then started it back up again in order to exit the expressway. ?took the van in. They kept it for over a week and then told me that they replaced something with the brakes and now it is working fine. "(11/04/14), I was on vacation in Ohio. Going 40 mph and the same thing happened. Again, I was lucky and no accident. "took the van to nearest dealership. They charged me $79 to check out the car ? and they did not find anything. I would have thought that would have been a covered charge. ?Chrysler ?escalated my ticket to corporate? and they also asked me if I felt safe driving my van home. I did not feel safe ? but really did not see a choice because all the dealership and the surrounding car rental places had to offer me was a small car and I had 3 people, luggage and a wheelchair to get home. ?I drove side roads home " the total trip took me an additional 9 hours instead of 4.5. (11/06/14) the car shut down again on me " no one was on the road at the time. "(11/07/14) ray laetham dealership in grosse pointe, Michigan. "11/12/14 dealership asked several questions about the car and said the engineers at Chrysler have given them additional things to try "11/14/14 dealership tells me I can pick up my van. Engineers have decided that it must have been the E85 gas that I had been using "which has been known to cause problems" even though that is the gas that I was told to use. Hopefully I will survive the last 6 months of my lease. I have a van that I cannot drive my family in.

Life threatening situation occurred while driving our 2013 Chrysler Town and country minivan. We were traveling on the New York state thruway, utilizing the cruise control and as we attempted to pass a tractor trailer the accelerator stuck. My husband was driving and had lost total control of the vehicle other than steering. We were traveling at 65 mph. Our 9 year old was in the car and began to panic and cry. We frantically tried to remedy the situation which lasted 30-40 seconds then resolved on its own. Thank goodness there were no cars in our immediate path or we would have reared ended them or been forced to drive into the median.

The Michelin tires, energy saver A/S are defective and dry rotting causing a potential blowout and accident. The accelerator is positioned too far forward and the brake is positioned too far back, causing the foot to slide under the brake when changing over from acceleration to braking. A very serious problem and defect in the design and workmanship of this vehicle.
