ELECTRICAL SYSTEM

4/17/2017 - SCOTTSDALE, AZ
WHILE DRIVING, THE INDICATOR LIGHTS ON THE INSTRUMENT PANEL START FLASHING. THE GAS GAUGE, THE SPEEDOMETER, THE SEAT BELT LIGHT, AND OTHER LIGHTS, EXCEPT THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT, FLASH ON AND OFF INTERMITTENTLY. SOMETIMES WHEN THE LIGHTS ARE FLASHING AND THE INDICATORS ARE FLUCUATING BACK AND FORTH, THE CAR HAS SLOWED AS IF IT WAS GOING TO STOP. IT HAS NOT STOPPED YET BUT THE CAR DID ENGAGE IN SOME BUCKING ACTION. IF I STOP THE CAR AND START IT AGAIN AFTER PUTTING IT IN PARK, GENERALLY THE LIGHTS DO NOT FLASH FOR THE REST OF DAY. I TOOK THE CAR TO MY MECHANIC MANY TIMES IN REFERENCE TO THIS ISSUE. THEY COULD NOT FIND THE SOURCE OF THE PROBLEM. MY MECHANIC TOLD ME TO TAKE THE CAR TO THE DEALER. I TOOK IT TO THE DEALER, THEY KEPT IT FOR TWO DAYS AND WERE UNABLE TO DUPLICATE AND THEREFORE DIAGNOSE THE PROBLEM. MY CAR HAS HAD EVERY CONCEIVABLE TEST AND HAS HAD PARTS REPLACED AND NOTHING HAS STOPPED THE INSTRUMENT PANEL FROM FLASHING AND THE CAR NEARLY STALLING. I CONTACTED CHRYSLER CORP. CUSTOMER SERVICE WHO WAS NOT HELPFUL. THEY SIMPLY PUT ON HOLD FOR 45 MINUTES TO DEAL WITH MY COMPLAINT. I HAVE LOOKED ON-LINE AND THIS SEEMS TO BE A PROBLEM WITH PT CRUISERS. CHRSYLER IS EMPLOYING RISK MANAGEMENT FOR THIS PROBLEM. I HOPE NO ONE IS KILLED.

WHEN DRIVING VEHICLE THE STEERING CAPABILITY OCCASIONALLY SEIZES AND VEHICLE CANNOT BE TURNED FOR A FEW MOMENTS. THIS IS VERY DANGEROUS SINCE IT CAN HAPPEN AT A TURN IN THE ROAD. ALSO, AT STOP LIGHTS THE CAR TRIES TO JOLT FORWARD. AGAIN THIS IS OCCURS AT INCONSISTENT TIMES. ADDITIONALLY THE CAR DIES IN IDLE WHEN THE TEMPERATURE OUTSIDE RISES ABOVE 60 DEGREES. THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT CAME ON AND WHEN CODE WAS READ IT STATED THE COOLING SYSTEM WAS IN NEED OF REPAIR. UPON FURTHER INVESTIGATION INTO THE ISSUE WE FOUND THE FAN WORKED BUT WAS NOT BEING SWITCHED ON. SO WE REPLACED THE FAN SWITCH. IMMEDIATELY IT BLEW THE SWITCH. THE MECHANICS CANNOT IDENTIFY THE ISSUE. WHILE ADDITIONAL CODES JUST GET THROWN INTO THE PILE. AFTER SOME RESEARCH I FOUND THAT I AM NOT THE ONLY ONE EXPERIENCING THIS ISSUE. I CHECK OFTEN TO SEE IF SOMETHING HAS BEEN RECALLED OR IF ANYONE HAS FOUND A SOLUTION THAT PROVIDES LASTING CHANGE BUT I HAVE NOT FOUND ANY ADVICE OR SOLUTION THAT ACTUALLY FIXES THE ISSUE. THESE ISSUES ARE REOCCURRING SO I AM STATING THE LAST OCCURRENCE WHICH WAS JUST THIS MORNING.
