MY VEHICLE KEEPS STALLING AND DYING WHEN I AM DRIVING AT A SLOW SPEED (ROADWAY OR PARKING LOT ALIKE) , I REPLACED THE BATTERY TO MAKE SURE THAT WASN'T CAUSING IT AND IT STILL DOES IT. I STARTED TO RESEARCH THE ISSUE AND APPARENTLY THERE WAS A RECALL FOR THAT MODEL FOR THE WIRING HARNESS AND THE DESCRIPTION MATCHES MY ISSUE. I CALLED THE DEALERSHIP AND WAS TOLD THAT MY VEHICLE DOES NOT HAVE THE RECALL. I DID MORE RESEARCH AND THERE ARE NUMEROUS ACCOUNTS OF DEALERSHIPS STATING THIS IS NOT A RECALL AND SOME PEOPLE WERE ALMOST INJURED BECAUSE OF THIS. VEHICLES STOPPING WHILE DRIVING IS VERY DANGEROUS. THIS RECALL DEFINITELY NEEDS TO BE EXPANDED. THE CODE REPORTED FOR THIS IS TSP 13-12-12.
