06 SRT8 shuts off, then accellarates w foot on brake

Hey Guys/Gals, trying to get some ideas of what to go after on my Son's 06 SRT8 that stalled in traffic yesterday, then after it restarted, accelerated while his foot was on the brake. I know it has a linear gas pedal connected to the PCM I believe. He said he tried to pull up any codes on his dash display but none came up. He said the oil light came on when it died which is probly because the engine died. Said all the fluids are good. He's headed home from college tomorrow, bout a 4 hour ride and would like to have a game plan to fix it when he gets home. I've seen some threads when I googled shut down problems which pointed to defective pcm's...but also usually no codes set. Acted like pcm didn't know where the gas pedal was at, and started running a position check on it? stabbing in the dark here. Car has an aftermarket remote start that will start the car 2x's after you reconnect the battery? I plan to get this taken out by dealer that installed it as I think it might be interfering with the tire press monitor system, and it could be causing this latest issue too. mI appreciate any help on this.

The gas tank recall is from filling up and it causing a vapor lock issue. Was he at a full tank/ had he just filled up? Sometimes after stalling the car can kick back on again which could be causing that sudden jolt/acceleration. I've had it die then spring back while cruising, while idlely accelerating, while merging into traffic, etc. I've also had it just stall and stay dead until I restart everything.

You're not getting any codes because it's probably not throwing any engine codes but TCM codes which a dealer or someone with the actual scanner tool can pull (not even the aftermarket tuners can pull them).

U0100 is the one to look out for (lost contact with PCM) and P0700 is a sometimes common trans code, which there was also a TSB for in the 06's.

How many miles are on the car? Also check spark plugs and coil packs. While you're at it, check it for the rad. fan recall too... Oh and make sure it's not still running the smooth OEM rotors, as that was also a TSB for the 06's. Good fun.

What these two said ^^ :bigthumb:

x2 on the 06 should be covered for the fuel tank issue, as mine and Ddaddy's are both 06s and are covered. If a dealer is giving you any trouble I'd go over their head.
OP - contact DodgeCares on this forum. She may be able to help you out with that warranty issue.

Tanks are hard to come by as Corporate has limited stock to the dealers due to the warranty replacement. Some people have waited months to get theirs replaced. Could be why you're getting the run-around.
I've been on a waiting list for over 3 months now for mine :frown2:
Have you kept in touch with your dealer? I was told the same thing and got a call the following week that the tank was in. I have been following the same service writer to this third dealership since I bought my car new in 06, so maybe he had something to do with the quick turn aroun . Good luck.
Yeah, I've been calling intermittently throughout the process (always talking with the same service rep). Each time he just seems a little more annoyed than the last and assures me he'll contact me when it's all ready to go. Funny thing is I can go and order the parts online myself right this second, have them shipped to me and install them. With the holidays happening I just don't have the cash to float that bill if dodge decides they don't want to pay me back.
