I have own this car for 5 years and it did shut down on me due to I did hit the ingestion switch with my knee as we were going down the interstate. A couple years go after that with no issue. Now my 17 year old girl drives it now with no issue. Got recall littler ignition switch replacement. Got switch replaced and one for a re-flash on the power train. Now after that it has stalled out on my daughter 2 times a mouth apart when stop to make a turn going to school. Took to the dealer and they said it was a faulty front control module and only going off of stored codes b211e & b211a and don't know how many counts or how old they are. The service writer could not tell me that is a fix and the tech said that is what it need . I took the car home and I can not find these codes anywhere online. I did find a lot of complaints of this same thing and the fcm has been replaced with many other sensors and they still have the same issue. So that my have saved me over $500 that may or may not fix it. . I the parent am driving the car now till I can this figured out. If there are updated resolving this issue with the same problem please advise. Don't what to just throw away money on parts that is not on me but more of a safety issue on the Jeep company end that needs to fix this. Thanks for your time.

car   Car Stall problem 3
Failure Date: 10/08/2017

While driving at slow speeds, the vehicle stalls out, obviously resulting in a loss of power steering & brakes. This has happened 50+/- times over the last 2 years of my ownership. The problem has intensified over the last 2 weeks, but would always re start after shifting into park. Last night (10/8/2017) it happened again. This time while merging onto a highway at 55 mph. The vehicle suddenly lost power as I coasted to the side of the highway. This time it would not start & I had to have the vehicle towed. Through on-line research, this is a common problem on the Jeep Commander (4. 7l) dating back to when the vehicles were new. The fix for the problem varies greatly. Given the timeline for this problem, its obvious this is a problem that daimler Chrysler (now fiat Chrysler USA) is aware of & makes no attempt at a solution.

Failure Date: 12/28/2015

While driving my 2007 Jeep Commander, it will shut off. Other times the lights will flicker off and car seems to stall. This problem happens without any warning. It is very scary to be driving on the interstate and the car just stops!!! I have four children that I drive around, so this can not happen! I have read where there have been many complaints about this and nothing has been done. That is unacceptable because lives are at risk. I'm taking the vehicle in for the ignition switch recall, but I have read where that has not fixed the issue I am having.

car   Car Stall problem 14
Failure Date: 07/10/2014

My situation began on Jul 10, 14 when my vehicle began stalling while driving. Since that time, this vehicle has been stalling and quitting on the highway/city streets and sputtering along every time I drive it. This vehicle stop running on me while driving 65 to 70 mph and I have to pull over to restart it. This is at a standstill and cannot be restarted while coasting. Another time I was at a stop light and the motor died when I applied the gas pedal. Even while turning onto a major highway has given me scary moments. Even while at a stand still, the engine has died on me. These incidents that I have described have happened to me and my wife more than once for each situation that I mentioned here. To the best of my judgement, my situation is a major safety issue and an accident waiting to happen. The situation here is that the engine sputters/stalls and quits on me while driving. The cause to me is unknown since I am not a mechanic. As stated, this started Jul 2014 and has been ongoing to date.

Then stalled in traffic the next day while I was turning onto a local street. Then stalled again pulling into the driveway. The car was at the dealership for six weeks. They replaced the ignition switch, coils, computer system, wiring system, throttle. I picked the car up at the end of March, 2014. The car was working fine until this past weekend. It stalled again in traffic while my son was driving with four passengers in the car on April 26, 2014. It stalled again while I was driving the car on Sunday April 27, 2014. The car was towed to the dealer on April 28, 2014. This vehicle could have caused a fatality. It is not a safe vehicle for anyone to drive.

As time went on, the incidents were more frequent. The previous switch module (21030400768004143-af) was replaced ($1067. 00/dealer only part/repair cost). The latest module (dealer only part cost me $1008. 04 (part & repair cost). This is the 2nd report to you on this vehicle.

We have only owned this used Jeep for not even two months, bought from us auto sales oct 18 2013, vehicle began jerking around all over out of the blue could barely drive it almost caused us to get into an accident, had to pull over multiple times, took for service, said it was not transmission or engine, see on internet five recalls, have read many people having issues, today vehicle freezes up while driving twice, decelerates powers down to almost a stall out in traffic while my five kids are in this vehicle with me! very dangerous, read on internet multiple places and people having same issues and Chrysler not fixing problems??? why not do they want to be sued or cause an accident? my vehicle just started doing this now two months after buying it used!!!!! twice in one day freezes up while trying to drive it, powers down wont accelerate, like its stuck in one gear wont go loses power like it will shut off suddenly have to pull over and turn off and restart to get it to stop doing this. . . . Make them fix it before it causes accidents for not just me but everyone else that is having this problem search the internet you will find many are having this same issue!!!!!! do your job! I expect something to be done about this at once! and remedied. . . . Do I take this to the dealer to have it fixed? or back where I bought it????? I am reading that Chrysler is refusing to address the issues and multiple incidents are found all over the internet just search it up under make and model and year of the vehicle! and type in loss of power stalling and it says the remedy is a pcm module or something? I really need this addressed at once and told how to fix this as we just bought this vehicle.

Failure Date: 10/07/2013

I would be driving, and my temperature gauge would slowly creep over to hot, temp over heating. . I noticed as I slowed down my car wanted to stall, it would putt putt putt until I gave it a go as if it was misfiring, and slowly the temperature gauge would go back to normal. Honestly not thinking anything of it, I went home, dropped the groceries off and proceeded back to my car to pick my son up from school. I started my car, it stalled, I started it again, it stalled, extremely worried I was praying third time a charm. . As I started it the third time it started with much hesitation and did the same stuttering as if it was misfiring again. I proceeded to my sons school, watching the temperature gauge creep right back up to hot. When I got there I checked the hood, no steam, nothing seemed hot, and the coolant level was still full. When we went to leave it refused to start. Long story short, I have been without my car for a month now, and after spending 1000's of dollars to fix the situation, the mechanic cant for certain put his hand on it. Everything he does, leads to him thinking something else, and leads to the problem becoming an engine overhaul. Has anyone else had this over heating issue, and the misfiring of the car, as if it stalls while driving? please, I have contacted Chrysler, I am at my wits end.
