2007 Cruiser. 112,000 miles. Standard shirt. 2.4 Liter

Customer Question
2007 Cruiser. 112,000 miles...
2007 Cruiser. 112,000 miles. Standard shirt. 2.4 Liter engine -- no turbo. It has started to die while being driven. Sometimes this is preceded by flashing dash lights, and the gauges going dead. So far it has re-started quickly. Sometimes on its own, or I depress the clutch and let it out again while the car is still rolling -- like a push start. Sometimes these events are day apart sometimes several times a day.

Good evening and welcome to JustAnswer!!

My name is ***** ***** I have worked for a Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep dealership for 19 years and I will do my best to help.

If the cluster is flashing and the gauges quit then it sounds like your dealing with a loss of BUS communicatoon and if this is the case you will need a scantool to see what codes are in the cluster, TIPM , and PCM to determine the issues.. Can you scan the modules and post the codes here?

Talk soon,

Brad

Brad,Does the loss of BUS communication cover the engine quitting?Kevin
Chrysler Mechanic: Brad, Dealership Technician replied 10 months ago

Kevin thanks for the reply!!

Yes a loss of BUS communication will cause the modules not to be able to talk to one another and cause a stall.. Can I get your VIN number to check on any bulletins?

What Customers are Saying:

I was skeptical at first but thought I'd give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised. Your site actually is a quality service that I would recommend to others in a heartbeat.

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
