ELECTRONIC STABILITY CONTROL

6/7/2017 - HENDERSONVILLE, NC
WINDSHIELD WIPERS FAILED ON SEVERAL OCCASIONS WHILE DRIVING IN THE RAIN. HAD THE WIPER MOTOR AND SWITCH REPLACED AND THE PROBLEM PERSISTS. WIPERS WILL STOP IN THE MIDDLE OF THE WINDSHIELD AND INCH UP AND DOWN BUT NEVER GOING BACK TO ORIGINAL POSITION. I HAVE TO PHYSICALLY PUSH THE WIPERS BACK DOWN EACH TIME. ALSO, HEADLIGHT FLICKER. VEHICLE HAS ALSO STARTED BY ITSELF WITHOUT THE KEY OR REMOTE STARTER FUNCTION. THIS ALL POINTS TO THE TIPM SINCE IT CONTROLS ALL OF THESE FUNCTIONS.

AIR BAGS

5/24/2017 - BURLINGTON, NC
AIR BAG LIGHT COMING ON AND OFF INTERMITTENTLY. AFTER LOOKING ONLINE MY CAR ALSO HAS THE SAME AIR BAG LIGHT PROBLEM THAT HAVE BEEN LISTED NUMEROUS TIME (BUT FOR SOME ODD REASON MY VIN ISN'T ONE OF THE RECALLED CARS) ONLINE. WHILE DRIVING THE CAR THE AIR BAG LIGHT WILL COME ON AND GO OFF CONTINUOUSLY. READING AROUND I HAVE FOUND THAT THE PROBLEM LIES WITHIN THE SEAT TRACK SENSOR. THIS NEEDS TO BE FIXED ON ALL CARS AND NOT JUST THE ONES CHRYSLER DEEMS TO WANT TO FIX. THIS IS A HUGE SAFETY ISSUE AND COULD LEAD TO SOME SERIOUS PROBLEMS. THE NHTSA NEEDS TO MAKE THEM DO THE RIGHT THING AND FIX ALL THE CARS, NOT THE SELECT FEW THEY (CHRYSLER) DEEM TO MIGHT BE HAVING PROBLEMS.
