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.

Do you
have the same problem?

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

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 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.

Nice to hear from you. I hope all is well. As far as the dealership, have her email me here with what they are saying is bad. I can tell you or her if I feel they are right or just guessing.

Hey, When she is taking it in on friday they are going to run a 94.00 computer scan on the car could that find the problem or is it something else?

That is a good place to start. If there are trouble codes, it will identify them.

If she were to wait 2 months tell I come back home do you think that could have a chance of hurtting the car even more then what it already is?
