I have a 05 chrysler 300 when I was at my kids school to pick them up I was sitting in line and I was there for about 5 minutes I had my car in park when it was time to move up my car did then I got
Up a little bit and I stopped again and just
had my foot on the break my car made a
noise and shut off by its self and I had to put
it in park and leave it a few seconds then
start it again but it drives good just when you
sit with it in drive and your foot on the break
it shuts off what causes this?
Many things can cause your car to idle low and stall. Any lights lit up on the dash?
A red lighting bolt
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!!!
My check engine light and electronic throttle control light! How much am I gonna spend in repairs?
Im having the problem
I have a 07 i just spent over 900.00 getting a new ETC put on and my car still have the same issue, it shuts off on its on and when I stop to get gas or something it want start up I have to wait 30 minutes before it will start.
Im haveing the same problem i have a 2005 Chrysler and the lighting bolt will come on while my car is idling but if i put it in neutral when im stoped at a light the lighting bolt wont come on but if im sitting there with just my break on it will flash then die and i have to put it in park turn it all the way off and start it back up sometimes the lighting bolt will flash when im driving
I'm having the same problem. When I'm driving my temp gage drops down to cold and the red lightning bolt light goes on along withe the check engine tight and my fans kick on but once I stop turn the car off the red lightning bolt goes off and so do my fans and temp gage goes back too normal...What too do.
This is to everyone out there with Mopar issues.... CHANGE YOUR CARS COMPUTER. Get a NEW one NOT OLD OR SALVAGE FROM JUNKYARD. Once I changed my cars computer ($1000) It was smooth sailing from there. I also recommend changing out that shitty “pink thing” in your shifter compartment for a metal one so you don’t have any issues with it down the road too.
