2/5/2016 - WINTER HAVEN, FL
WHEN DRIVING ALL LIGHTS ON DASH WILL COME ON, GAUGES WILL GO OFF AND ON, AND THE ENGINE HAS DIED IN THE ROAD. SOME TIMES AIR CONDITIONER WILL FAIL TO WORK FOR DAYS AT A TIME THEN SUDDENLY WORK AGAIN. KEY SWITCH SEEMS TO BE LOOSE INSIDE AND WILL NOT STAY IN POSITION. THE TIME IT DIES WHILE DRIVING IS SCARIEST PART IT HAS SO FAR RESTARTED AFTER GETTING OFF ROAD. AFRAID WHEN SOMEONE IS FOLLOWING TOO CLOSE THEY WILL HIT US. MANY PEOPLE SEEM TO HAVE THIS GO ON. CHRYSLER SHOULD FIX BEFORE CUSTOMERS ARE KILLED! THIS HAS BEEN ONGOING PROBLEM SINCE ABOUT 90,000 MILES IT HAS 105,000 NOW.

TIPM ALREADY REPLACED 1X FOR SAME ISSUES OCCURRING AGAIN NOW, A FEW YEARS LATER AND FOR AT LEAST THE LAST 8 MONTHS FROM THIS POSTING, OCCURRING MORE AND MORE FREQUENTLY NOW AND LAST TIME OCCURRING WAS FEB 01, 2016. ALL DASH / ENGINE STATUS LIGHTS COME ON FOR NO REASON, THEN OFF SECONDS LATER, OCCURRING ANYTIME WHILE ENGINE IS RUNNING. ENGINE STALLS - SPUTTERING, POWER STEERING AND BREAKS FAIL TO WORK PROPERLY DURING THIS TIME, FUEL LEVEL GAUGE WILDLY FLUCTUATES AND SMELL OF GAS IS NOTICEABLE, ALL CAUSING A DANGEROUS SITUATION WHEN AT HIGHWAY SPEEDS. HEAD LIGHTS AND INTERIOR LIGHTS RANDOMLY GO BRIGHT OR DIM FOR A FRACTION OF A SECOND. DEALERSHIP UNABLE TO DIAGNOSE AS IT DOES NOT STAY BROKE LONG ENOUGH FOR THEIR TECHS TO DIAGNOSE WITH THEIR EQUIPMENT EVEN AFTER HAVING THE CAR FOR 2 FULL DAYS, DESPITE THIS PROBLEM SEEN VISUALLY BY DEALER AND ON VIDEO RECORDING. SUSPECT TIPM / ECM, INTEGRATED VOLTAGE REGULATOR IS AT FAULT. EXTENDED WARRANTY REFUSES TO REPLACE WITHOUT A CERTIFIED DIAGNOSIS BY AUTHORIZED REPAIR SHOP. 2ND MAJOR PROBLEM WITH 4 ENGINE MOUNTS NEEDING REPLACEMENT SEVERAL TIMES, MORE THAN 10 MOUNT REPLACEMENTS DURING LIFE OF MY CAR, SO FAR. 3RD MAJOR PROBLEM, TRANSMISSION SOMETIMES WILL NOT AUTO SHIFT GEARS IN A TIMELY MANOR, TAKING UP TO 4 SECONDS TO ENGAGE DRIVE OR OTHER FROM PARK SETTING. I HAVE THE ENTIRE LIFE OF VEHICLE PAPERWORK ON ALL REPAIRS AND REGULAR MAINTENANCE DONE FOR THIS CAR. HOPING THERE IS A CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT I CAN GET IN ON FOR THIS PROBLEM, SEEN REPORTED NUMEROUS TIMES ON VARIOUS FORUMS LIKE THIS DOT SITE.

2006 CHRYSLER P.T. TIME AFTER TIME ENGINE INDICATOR LIGHTS COME ONE, SOMETIMES ENGINE DIES. HAVE BEEN ABLE TO RE-START IN MOTION, BUT WHEN WILL THIS BECOME DISASTEROUS? PER INTERNET, HUNDREDS OF FOLKS HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM, YET CHRYSLER NOR NHSTB DOES ZILCH. DEALER HAS NO CLUE AFTER DOING DIAGNOSTIC. WILL NEVER BUY ANOTHER CHRYSLER PRODUCT. SO MUCH FOR GOVERNMENT GIVING A S---! THIS WEEK IT HAS HAPPENED EVERYTIME THE CAR HAS BEEN DRIVEN.

VEHICLE WAS STARTED IN THE MORNING AND HEADLIGHTS AND TURN SIGNALS WOULD NOT OPERATE. VEHICLE WAS TAKEN TO A REPAIR SHOP AND WAS DIAGNOSED AS A PROBLEM WITH THE INTEGRATED POWER MODULE. THE MODULE HAD TO BE RESET TO MAKE THE LIGHTS OPERABLE AGAIN.

MY TIPM (TOTALLY INTEGRATED POWER MODULE) IS FAULTY. THE HEADLIGHTS AND TURN SIGNAL LIGHTS DO NOT WORK. BULBS HAVE BEEN CHECKED AND REPLACED WITH BRAND NEW, TESTED AND FULLY FUNCTIONAL BULBS, BUT THIS HAS NOT RECTIFIED THE PROBLEM. SOMETIMES THE CAR WILL NOT START AT ALL. THE BATTERY IS FINE, AS THE CAR ENGINE WILL TURN OVER, HOWEVER, THE CAR WILL NOT FIRE UP. I WILL LEAVE IT, AND TRY LATER, AND THE CAR WILL SUBSEQUENTLY START. THIS STARTING TROUBLE IS AN INTERMITTENT ISSUE. I HAVE READ THAT THERE WAS A CLASS ACTION LAW SUIT FOR MANY CHRYSLER VEHICLES WITH TIPM PROBLEMS, BUT I DID NOT SEE PT CRUISER OWNERS INCLUDED WITHIN THOSE ACTIONS. HAVING RESEARCHED THE MATTER, I SEE THAT MANY OTHER PT CRUISER OWNERS LIKE MYSELF ARE HAVING ISSUES WITH THEIR ELECTRICAL SYSTEMS AS A RESULT OF FAULTY TIPMS.
