When we first got the car about two months after the car would randomly not start. It would turn over, but not ignite at all. Took it to the dealer and naturally it did not do it for them. Anyway it seemed to go away after that Then I get in the car almost a year later and while backing out it just shuts off in gear! So put it in park and try to restart and it does no problems so i pull out and I am driving down the street and bam..it does it again while in drive???? So I put it back in the garage and call the tow truck and have it taken down to the dealership where they will look at it.
So my question is ...has anyone ever heard of this. I a suspicion that they will not find anything again, but I surely do not want my wife and kids to be driving on the freeway and have it just turn off on them.
I saw another post about the key fob battery can do this????
My car has done this to me a couple of times while im in drive. I take it to the dealer right away and they tell me since it doesnt throw a code they cant do anything about it. I dont know anything about cars but my moms 300 had the same problem and it ended up being the computer. No problems since they switched it out.

Mine did it 4 times while I was driving around the country for 3 weeks. I determined that it was my knee bumping my keys hanging down from the ignition as I moved my foot back and forth between pedals. I did some playing around on a back street at slow speeds and was able to turn off my car with my knee.

mine did this twice in one day a few weeks ago but hasnt done it since. I was driving approximately 30 mph and i noticed the car wasnt on anymore. i pulled over, put it in neutral and restarted it. i have no idea why it did that. its not safe either and if you were to have an accident because of it, i wonder if chrysler could eventually be sued. i'm thinking a recall will eventually be issued 'cuz the same exact thing happened to me in my 2005 dodge magnum r/t i previously owned.
