2006 dodge charger rt stalls out

Asked by Apr 29, 2015 at 03:23 PM about the 2006 Dodge Charger RT

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2006 Dodge charger rt that keeps stalling out.  I know about the "over filling of gas tank", I was having that problem too, I just don't fill all the way up anymore.  This is a different problem.  It doesn't mater how much gas I have.  I will be driving and will shut off for a second and turn back on.  If I'm stopped the car will stall.  It will start right back up again.  At first, it only did it once in awhile, now its getting worse. I drive about 8 miles to work, and it will shut off about 10+ times in that short distance.I have codes P0700 & U0100.  I've done some research and many people had the same problem, the ended up replacing the ECU and said it solved the problem.  I got a new ECU today, disconnected neg battery cable, waited about an hour to reset everything, put new ECU in and still same Problem. Not sure what to check or replace now.  Very Frustrated!  Thanks!!!

That was happening with our Ford Explorer, and we were told it was idling too slow. We didn't take it to get it fixed yet, but thought it might need to be "cleaned out" a little bit. We were told by a good source to put in Lucas injection treatment and Startron fuel treatment. It's a lot better! He said it's because of the high amounts of Ethanol they are putting in our gas. It's worth a try!

I would have my crank position sensor checked bc they are commonly known for those symptoms on a dodge.

I am having the exact problem with my 2006 Charger 5.7 Hemi (former police car). I am seeing many say the computer PCM ECM?? I started today with the simple things first. I tightened my battery terminals and added a good fuel system cleaner. I will see tomorrow. Good luck.

I have replaced pcm still shuts off check engine light doesn't come on
