Many things can cause your car to idle low and stall. Any lights lit up on the dash?

From your owners manual......Electronic Throttle Control (ETC) Light This light informs you of a problem with the Electronic Throttle Control system. If a problem is detected the light will come on while the engine is running. Cycle the ignition key when the vehicle has completely stopped and the gear selector is placed in the PARK position. The light should turn off. If the light remains lit with the engine running your vehicle will usually be drivable, however, see your dealer for service as soon as possible. If the light is flashing when the engine is running, immediate service is required and you may experience reduced performance, an elevated/rough idle or engine stall and your vehicle may require towing. The light will come on when the ignition is first turned on and remain on briefly as a bulb check. If the light does not come on during starting, have the system checked by an authorized dealer.

I know exactly what it is: Chrysler has a recall but they are not admitting all the cars yet. Basically not enough people know where to complain. A class action suit was just recently done for other models for same problem. My chrysler 300 does the same. So dangerous bc we can get rimmed from behind at a light when we are abt to drive and then stall. Go to the following site. It will explain the law suit and it's VERY important u make a complaint with ALL 3 links they have at the end. Only if we stick together will.something happen. http://www.chryslerproblems.com/tr ends/tipm/ 1. CarComplaints.com 2. Notify Cas 3. Report a safety to NHTSA . Very important!!!
