Engine stall out on my 2010 Dodge Challenger srt8 6.1L hemi. The car has stalled out under normal driving conditions four times since I bought the car April 3, 2010. Twice while making a slow turn from a stop, once from while at speed 35mph on a steady run down a city block, and again while coming to stop at a light. I took the Challenger in to the dealership in April and they found nothing wrong with the car and recently took the car back in last weekend and they said the ABS sensor module (part #68048305ac module anti-lock brake sys) had gone bad and may be causing the issue. I have had no issues this week but I am not convinced that this issue may be resolved yet.

I was pulling up to a stop and turn right to enter the freeway as the car rolled to a stop the oil light came on and the engine died. This is the second time this has happened with this car:2010 Dodge R/T Challenger. The first time this happened the transmission would not engage immediately after I restarted the engine in neutral then shifted to drive. I had exited the freeway turned right went up an incline and stopped at a light and the engine stalled in traffic.

Challenger 8-cyl

  • 2,000 miles


Had been driving the car for approx. 1.5 hours, approached a red light and traffic in front of me had stopped abruptly forcing me to make a fast stop. Not a full force stop but a quick reaction/sudden stop. Then my car stalled out and the oil light came on. I put it in park and restarted the car. It started right back up. I put it in drive but it hesitated to move for approximately 3-5 seconds, then took off. The car had approximately 2000 miles on it. Currently it has almost 3000 miles. This had happened once before this incident also as I was slowing down to make a left hand turn onto the street I live on. Same thing, car restarted right up. That was with about 1000 miles on the car. I have an appointment with the dealership to see if they can detect something. However, I've read on some forums that it has been happening to these cars quite a bit in automatics 5.7 and 6.1 motors. My fear is that me or a member of my family, as well as some unsuspecting other driver will run into either my back end or from the side if stalls again while making a turn across oncoming traffic. Thank you.

I just bought a 2010 Dodge Challenger srt8 in June. There has been 4 different occasions where the engine completely shuts off. I brake to turn and the engine shuts down and I see the oil light come on briefly. Luckily, I haven't been rear ended. I took it to the dealership, after keeping it for a week, they came back and said they found nothing wrong with the car. In addition, the headliner for the sunroof hangs down and the dealership tells me that it is on national back order. I am not the only one with this complaint....does it take a person getting killed before Dodge recalls these cars.

The contact owns a 2010 Dodge Challenger srt-8. the contact stated that occasionally, the vehicle stalled and the would not accelerate although the engine was still running. She drove onto the emergency lane and turned the vehicle off. The vehicle began to function normally after it was restarted. The failure occurred three times since April 2010. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer three times but the dealer could not determine the cause of failure. The dealer replaced the crankshaft sensor. The current mileage was 3,646. The failure mileage was approximately 165.

2010 Dodge Challenger srt8 stalls when depressing brake coming to a stop. Does it intermittently. Fear it might do it at the wrong time causing an accident. Vehicle only has 3,000 miles on it and it has stalled at least 10 different times. Dodge took car in and had no solution to problem other than replacing or updating latest software updates. After that was done car still has the same problem. Car has to be put in park then restarted. Sometimes twice before vehicle will move.
