Does your car turn off while driving?


Asked by Apr 28, 2014 at 08:08 PM about the 2008 Dodge Charger SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have an 08 Charger and have had starter relay issues, but now I have a new problem... while I am driving, the key fob will move into the middle position between start and off.  I will lose power steering and power brakes.  I immediately put the car into neutral and restart it. Today, I was into a curve and couldn't straighten back into my lane.  Thank goodness no one was coming.  Anyone else have this issue?

I would take it back to where you got it! Chevy has a recall for the same problem! SCARY!


I took my car to the dealership and they didn't know how to fix it. If the car doesn't throw a code, then they are clueless on how to fix it. I asked for my keys back and went next door to the Ford dealership and traded it.
