I use Chrysler's town and country van limited edition (year 2005). As I was driving , suddenly the vehicle stopped responding to my accelerator. Even I press hard vehicle does not pickup the speed. I tried apply the breaks and breaks did not respond. So I have pulled vehicle aside and put it in parking gear (using the gear shift rod) to bring the vehicle to a sudden stop with a jerk. Then I switched off the engine. After that engine would not start. Happening this on the road is dangerous. I had to do all my controls in the middle of the speeding traffic. I also heard of similar incidents about this vehicle. Request you to evaluate this vehicle to save some lives on the road. This problem was diagnosed as failure of fuel pump and service center replaced the fuel pump.

Vehicle brakes and steering stopped responding while vehicle was in motion. This lead to crash with a steel gate in an elementary school. Chrysler replaced a defective fuel pump but denies any problem with brakes/steering or any correlation between fuel pump problem and failure of brakes/steering. This is an update on my earlier odi 10152826 to include repair details and manufacturer/dealer response on this critical safety issue.

My family (me, my wife, and two young children) was on the way to an amusement park during a slow, steady rain at around 10:30 am on Saturday, June 10, 2005 ( I know it sounds crazy). We were cruising along in the left hand lane of a three-lane highway at aroung 65 mph when the engine in our 2005 Chrysler town and country just quit. Luckily, I was able to get the van across the other two lanes of traffic and onto the shoulder without causing an accident. The oil light had come on and was still on when we stopped. I had changed the oil earlier in the week and was worried I failed to tighten something. But I checked the oil filer, plug and fluid level and everything was ok. My wife called roadside assistance while I called the dealer. After explaining what had happened, the service manager at the dealer had no idea what was wrong and neither did we. We finally got an insight to the problem when the tow truck driver called for our location. He asked us if we were out of gas. We told him over and over our fuel gage was reading 3/8 full. He kept insisting we were out of gas. I then checked the trip odometer - it read just under 380 miles - which is a lot of miles for this van. The tow truck driver arrived, put a gallon of gas in the gas tank, and after a quick jump start, the van started right up. The driver said he only does his job part time, but has had to do the same for at least 20 other drivers of similar vans this year. So I called the service manager at the dealer again and he confirmed they had replaced components related to the fuel system in the 2005 Chrysler Town & Country minivans. He said to bring the van in Monday (June 13th, 2005) to get looked at. He did mention in particular the fuel pump as a possible suspect. So at this point, the vehicle has not been repaired.
