Car dies while driving

Asked by May 05, 2016 at 09:10 AM about the 1999 Chrysler Cirrus 4 Dr LXi Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I purchased a 99 Cirrus for my daughter, the car
has 76,000 miles. I had to have the distributor,
plugs, wires, etc replaced due to oil leakage. New
battery just after that. Car ran fine for about a
montb then wouldn't start. Just had new ECU
installed. The day I picked up the car it died twice
while I was coming to a stop. Also key fobs no
longer operate locks. Took it back to shop and now
they're telling me it's because the distributor is bad
which will ultimately fry the new ECU. We also
replaced crank shaft position sensor. The shop
that replaced the distributor closed down. I just
want to be sure the shop that replaced the ECU
isn't trying to take me for more money. I'm a single
mom and this is getting pricey. Any suggestions?

There should be a part number on the repair ticket from the defunct shop, that should allow you to get a warranty on that part if it is still within the warranty span of time, but the labor will be yours unless the shop you now have uses the same vendor then they might be able to help some.
