1-fuel system after filling up will choke itself out at slow speeds or idling-2-engine cuts out going 40-80 mph jerks and cuts off and back on sometimes engine light comes on and other times not 3- issues with turning car completely off have to put back into gear then park again to turn off 4- at times when putting into park my brake light comes on. I thought I did good on this car but now I'm beginning to think I'm in over my head all of this happens on average every other day. One or all things happen intermediate.

I have 2 problems. First while driving all my warning lights will flash on then go right off. Another problem I have is my car will turn over and sometimes start but die immediately. Once I get it started it will go fine for a while before doing it again. By the looks of my research both problems are pretty common in 2006 Chargers.

Failure Date: 09/02/2019

I took my 06 Charger in for airbag recall and when I left the dealer my car shut off at every lights and shut off in the middle of going 40 50 miles an hour. It continues to do that more and more everyday. I've read on the internet about so many of the 6th generation Dodge Chrysler products doing this exact same thing. I can understand why a problem that causes you to stall out in the middle of a busy intersection is not addressed. First it start telling me that it was electronic throttle control problem, then it's now telling me that is a problem between the throttle control module and the ecm. This happened exactly one minute after I left the dealer getting my airbags recalled. It stalls at when stationary, when moving, in the middle of the street, and every couple minutes. I know I am not alone with this problem but I don't understand why nothing is being addressed.

After filling up with fuel my Charger will stall. It has happened 5 or 6 separate occasions over the past 2 years. I generally do not fill the car up all the way because of this. However just today I had the same problem after accidentally filling it. I do not top off the car when filling once the nozzle clicks off I stop. Today after getting gas I went to pull out into traffic and the car stalled. The power steering would not work the engine shut off and I was stranded halfway out into the lane of oncoming traffic. I put the car in park and restarted it and drove about 20 feet before it shut off again. This is a huge safety issue. I thought I was going to be hit. I did manage to get the car home which is about two miles away but I had to restart it four more times. I've got roughly 80,000 miles on the car I have always kept up with maintenance and with any repairs that needed to be done. I searched online to see if there was a recall for this problem but there doesn't seem to be even though a lot of people seem to be having the same problem not only with the Chargers but with three hundreds as well.

Failure Date: 09/01/2016

2006 Dodge charges with 5. 7 hemi v8 - experiencing random stalling. Happens at any speed. Everything shuts off including the power steering and abs. First happened while merging onto freeway and I had to drive off the road to avoid a semi-truck. This happened with my young child in the vehicle. I had the gas tank, fuel canister, and purge valve replaced. The problem still occurs regardless of the amount of gas in the vehicle and regardless of when it was refueled. Even though this appears to be a common problem the dealership has been no help and even tried charging me for unnecessary diagnostics. Car does not flash a code so after replacing what was supposed to fix the issue, driving the vehicle is the only way to find out if it is fixed. This has lead to a few dangerous close calls. Please look into this issue before people get hurt because this is a serious problem. Thank you, jeff allen.

(Video) Dodge Charger, Electronic throttle body light flashing on the Dash, code P2173. Low Power problems..

My car's engine stalls without warning while driving. I had problems with this when I bought the car within the same week from a used car dealer. It now affects my headlights by making them flash on and off while driving. The car has been in and out of the shop for the past year and no one can seem to find the issue. There is a past time device installed which interfered with the security system. The dealership took out the security system and shortly thereafter the engine stalls began. Engine stalls occur while driving or stopped at traffic lights. It happens randomly but not often. The headlights happen everyday and is getting worse. The vehicle is becoming undrivable but no service tech can find the issue.
