Consumers have filed a total of 1,318 complaints related to Chrysler ELECTRICAL SYSTEM.
The vehicle is an electric and gas hybrid vehicle. While driving the vehicle at highway speeds, the vehicle goes completely dead. There is no power to accelerate, no power steering, reduced braking. This happened in june of 2020 and the vehicle had to be towed to the dealership. The dealership had the vehicle for approx. 3 weeks to repair and a new electrical inverter was installed. A similar event happened on 04-13-2021, however this time once the vehicle went dead and the vehicle coasted to a stop, after trying to turn the vehicle back on it was again under power. The vehicle was able to be cautiously driven to the dealership and at the time of writing this it is being services for this issue. In both the june 2020 and current situation, there was an error code stating "service charging system". In both circumstances, this has occurred at highway speeds with significant urban traffic. My wife was driving the vehicle this last time with our child in the vehicle. When this happened she was on a one lane express lane where people travel at the highest highway speeds. She was so concerned about getting struck by another vehicle she considered having both of them depart the vehicle and cross multiple lanes of traffic to get to safety. It is extremely dangerous for the people in the vehicle and for cars around the stalled vehicle. Thankfully they did not get struck.
Says to shift into park and restart the car. Takes a few tries to turn on. Check engine light came on and performance shifting unavaliable notice showed up. Now it there is a herking motion everytime the gas is touched.
Intermittent stopping of rear ac/heating unit.
The power steering would go out, a notice would come up stating " power steering unavailable", then the power steering would work for about 60 seconds and go out again and then repeat the problem. This just starting happening on 4/10/21. We had just gotten into the van and started driving, we went about 1/2 mile, it happened a total of 4 times. We turned around and brought the vehicle back home and it happened 2 more times
Car stalled while i was driving once on the highway and i had to swerve on to the side of the ride almost crashing and causing a accident and then a couple of time on the main road which also result into me having to swerve out of traffic almost causing a accident. The car will tell me put it in park i did that and then sometimes it will start up sometime it won? T.
