ELECTRICAL SYSTEM

4/12/2017 - LOS ANGELES, CA
MY CAR CUTS OFF WHILE DRIVING OR BEING IDLED. I WOULD DRIVE IT IN THE CITY AND AFTER ABOUT 20-30 MINUTES OF DRIVING STOP AND GO. IT WOULD CUT OFF WHILE I'M STOPPED AT A LIGHT. THEN I WOULD PUT IT IN PARK AND IT WOULD RESTART. THEN AFTER THAT IT WOULD READ AS HIGH COOLANT. ALSO GOING UP STEEP HILLS IT WOULD CUT OFF WHEN I TURN IT AT THE TOP OF THE HILL AND READ NOTHING JUST COMPLETELY TURN OFF. I FINALLY GOT TO REPLICATE THE PROBLEM WITH FIAT SERVICE AND THEY ARE TRYING TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO STOP IT FROM CUTTING OFF. THIS SHOULD BE A RECALL AND REPLACE BY FIAT
