 Description of the problemThis vehicle has given me many problems and most recently very dangerous ones. A few months ago on my way to work around 4am the drive shaft broke off and flew out at 75 mph. Luckily there wasn't much traffic during that time and the back part of the drive shaft is the one that broke off not the front so the truck didn't flip over. The truck has been repaired since then. Now a few days ago my pregnant wife was driving the truck and it turned off on her in the middle of an intersection while i was working out of town. On my return i found the electric throttle control light on at the dashboard. In doing some research i found that this is typically in relation to a bad fuel pump relay. I found this to be more than common on many dodge vehicles and obviously a very dangerous problem to have. The fuel pump relay on my vehicle seems to be integrated into the tipm and not serviceable. There also seems to not be a recall for this problem. It now appears i am being forced to spend $1200 on a manufacturer defect. This vehicle has gone from being my daily commuter to a huge liability because i am not sure what will happen next.
