IGNITION SWITCH TURNING OFF, DISABLING POWER STEERING, POWER BRAKES, AIR BAGS, MY CAR STOPPED IN THE MIDDLE OF THE STREET, ALL THE LIGHTS AND BELLS COME SO THERE IS POWER FROM THE BATTERY. AFTER A FEW TRIES IT WILL START WITH NO PROBLEMS. I WILL TURN THE FOB AND HEAR 1 CLICK SOUND AT THE START POSTION BUT NOTHING HAPPENS. IT HAPPENS RANDOMLY AND USUALLY STARTS AFTER 1-4 ATTEMPTS. I HAVE IT STOP IN THE MIDDLE OF THE STREET MULTIPLE TIME, AND IN HEAVY TRAFFIC AREAS THIS HAPPENS. IT WILL JUST GO DEAD, NO WARNINGS AT ALL. I DRIVE 25 MILES TO WORK AND HOME EVERY DAY, I AM SCARED TO DRIVE IT IN FEAR I WILL GET STUCK SOMEWHERE OR GET HIT!!!

STEERING

VEHICLE WOULD RANDOMLY SHUT OFF WHILING DRIVING. IGNITION SWITCH WOULD CHANGE POSITIONS IF BUMPED OR WHILE DRIVING OVER ROUGH TERRAIN. THUS CAUSING THE VEHICLE TO SHUT OFF UNEXPECTEDLY. 2008-2011 MODEL YEARS HAVE ALREADY BEEN RECALLED. I GUESS SOMEONE HAS TO DIE FOR THE 2012 MODEL YEAR, WHICH USES THE SAME PART, TO BE RECALLED AS WELL.

MY VAN DRAWS DOWN THE BATTERY, FOUND THE FUEL PUMP WAS NOT SHUTTING OFF. THE TIPM IS BAD AND I CONTINUE TO WRESTLE WITH THE PROBLEM. WHEN I FIRST COMPLAINED TO THE DEALER, THEY TOLD ME I HAD A DEAD CELL IN MY BATTERY. THEY SAID TO REPLACE THE BATTERY. I ALLOWED THEM TO REPLACE IT. ABOUT 2 WEEKS LATER , THE CAR WOULD NOT START. SAME PROBLEM, OVER AND OVER. THE FUEL PUMP WILL CONTINUE TO RUN, NOW I HAVE TO PULL THE FUSE SO AS TO NOT DRAIN MY BATTERY AND HOPE AND PRAY THE VAN WILL START. ONCE IT STARTS, I TEND NOT TO SHUT IT OFF BUT THIS WEEK IT HAS BEEN STALLING ON ME AND I AM SCARED TO DRIVE IT OUT OF MY DRIVE WAY. IT STALLED ON ST RD 74, WHICH IS A 4 LANE HIGH WAY THAT IS HEAVILY TRAVELED THRU MY TOWN. IS THERE ANY CLASS ACTION SUITS GOING ON FOR THIS SAME PROBLEM? I SAW ONE RAN BACK IN 2013, I THINK IT WAS WITH THE CHRYSLER CORP. NEED HELP TO REPAIR THE VEHICLE ONCE AND FOR ALL. THANK YOU TAMMY RABOLD
