CHRYSLER 300 ENGINE PROBLEM

2008 Chrysler 300

I have an 08 Chrysler 300 Limited. When driving with the A/C on and making a turn the car dies and all power goes out. I know about if you fill the car to much it may stall out and that has happened before. But this time the car would not start back it had to be jumped and a code for the A/C compressor came on.

What code did you get? Also, is the engine idle speed around 800rpm at an idle?

Im deplyed over seas and my wife is driving it and she said it was about the air compressor. And she said the idle speed is right at 1,000 rpm.

Not knowing the code makes it difficult. However, the idle air control solenoid is to idle the engine up when a load is placed on it. If it doesn't work, the AC could cause it to stall. I'm in PA. Don't know if I can help.

Now it started to die and would start right back up. But she said this time that she had to be jump started. And with that would it just stall out or would it also cut out all power.

Dennis, it could be many things. Is she able to keep it running if her foot is on the gas? Or does it still die? You know, a dead battery can cause the electrical components in these new cars to act up.

I'm sorry that I dont have all the answers. If you would could you email my personal email and I will keep it tell I get home in about 3 months and email you when I can drive the car and get a fell for it and know whats all going on with it. My email is dennisbetz23@yahoo. Com

I'm really not allowed. This thread will stay here if you come back to it, I will be notified via my email. Does that work? Also, I have no idea where the car is, but I am in PA. I could try to help if she is near. Let me know.

Joe

No she is in NC if you know anyone from down there that would help but I will write back on here when I get back home or if I get any more information about it

No, the best I could do is SC. Sorry I couldn't be of more help. Let me know what is going on when you come home and be safe.
