Takata recall. The seatbelt, once buckled, will not unfasten unless you repeatedly yank at the belt itself. There was repeated clicking in the engine and I could not exceed over 45mph. When the heat is turned on in the car the cool A/C blows on the drivers side of the car and when I tried to adjust the temperature on driver side of car I am unable to do that.

I started a uconnect system update while I was still parked. The disclaimer said nothing about to not update while driving. I started the update and started driving (my commute is about 25 minutes). It took about 10-15 minutes to download the update. Once it downloaded, the system reset. At this time I was in cruise control on a freeway that was ending, so I turned off my cruise control and then my car jolted forwarded as if it were in a very low gear and almost caused me to crash. I then was stuck in 1st gear while the system was rebooting and couldn't automatically or manually shift past 1st gear leaving me stuck on the side of the road. Then a screen popped up saying there was 50 minutes left on the update. I was stuck on the side of the road until the update finished. After that, my gears were shifting normally. During this time, I called Dodge and opened a case letting them know what happened. The picture I provided was a picture after I was already stopped on the side of the road. Updated 10/29/18

Upon arriving home after an 800 mile trip, (in the evening around 10:30 pm) when shifting into reverse to back into driveway, I experienced a complete ECU controller failure and everything went black. And engine died. After a few seconds it appears the computer rebooted itself and the dash came back up and the car restarted. It appears there is a real-time program bug in the car and the firmware needs to be investigated. Had this happened on the road, it would have cause a serious crash. I was then able to back into the driveway. No error code was posted! I believe that the realtime software is experiencing frame overruns and we know that causes runaway conditions like in the Toyota Camry. I believe the NHTSA should review every car firmware before release to insure spare time requirements are met and runaway conditions can not exist. (yes, I used to develop real time software for control systems)
