 Description of the problemOn my way work i stopped to get coffee and my radio turned off and when i was able to turn it on the volume wouldn't go pass 20. I got on the parkway and my battery light came on. I was pulling over at the next stop and came to a light as it was turning from red to green, so i didn't have to come to a complete stop and that is when my tranmission light came along with every light on my dash (my car went crazy). My car put "itself" in neurtal as i was crossing the traffic. This could have caused a serious accident. Thank god after playing with it i was able to get it into drive and the car started shaking and barely driving. I pulled it into a parking space at 711. I was unable to turn it off for 30 minutes. It started making loud noises under the hood like it was going to blow up and all the hands on my speedometer, etc were going back and forth like crazy and every light in my dash was on. The car wouldn't allow me to put my windows down and it said the key has left the vehicle when i had it in my hand the whole time. I was finally able to get the car to turn off and didn't try to restart it in fear of having the same problem or i was concerned it would blow up. I have never had any of my cars do that ever! I had it towed to the dodge dealership and i am waiting to hear back from them. I looked online and seen the recalls but my vin number is not in the recall. Reading blogs from this sight and other sights people have had the same problem. I see where dodge isn't honoring the recall because vehicles aren't on the recall list but how are people having the same problem and no one or dodge it doing anything about this? Does someone have to die or get hurt first?! If dodge doesn't make good and i have to pay for my vehicle to get fixed i am going straight to every new broadcasting reporter i know and then from there i am getting a lawyer. My car had a mind of it's own *js
