2004 Chrysler Crossfire, engine shut off while driving

Question From pittalf on 2004 Chrysler Crossfire, engine shut off while driving
2004 Chrysler Crossfire 3.2 L V6 65,000 Miles
Hello everyone. My name is Aaron. I have experienced no problems at all with the car since I purchased it about 3 and a half years ago. After stopping on my way home from work my car would not start. I could hear the starter going, but the engine would not turn over. After a number of attempts the car did start once again, which seemed to coincide with my pumping the gas pedal. At this time the "check engine" light was on, but was not flashing, leading me to believe that there was a problem, but nothing imminent. About a mile down the road the engine shut off, along with the power steering and power brakes. I was able to coast into a parking lot and used the e-brake to bring my car to a stop (brake pedal was very difficult to press and did not seem to be doing much). The power on my car remained on the whole time, however after the engine shut off pretty much all of the warning lights were on (as if I had just turned on the car to listen to the radio, but had not started it). I had the radio off after the difficulty starting the engine but did not notice any peculiar sounds, nor any dip in power of the engine or any thing else out of the ordinary. After the car was parked I popped the hood to see if anything really jumped out at me, but nothing did. My only thought was that perhaps the accessory belt had broke (because of the power steering/brakes going out). I believe, but am not certain, that the accessory belt is the serpentine belot located at the front of my engine and it did not appear damaged or out of the ordinary in any way that I could detect. I plan on having the car towed to a mechanic tomorrow morning, but was hoping someone would be able to provide some insight into the possible causes, so I do not go into the mechanic's completely blind. Thank you VERY MUCH for any information that you could provide and please let me know if there are any other questions (car is currently parked at a different location that I am at but I will do my best to answer any questions).

I am having the very same problem with my 2004 chrysler crossfire that I just bought two weeks ago with 65,000 miles on it. What did the problem turn out to be?
Response From FreddieCrossfire☆☆☆☆☆Top Rated Answer
Same problem here 2004 Crossfire 95000 miles shutting off ,let the engine cool and it starts no problem.Engine light comes on as well once its restarted. Not to fun in 6 lanes of traffic though.
shade tree or dealer tiz the question from here?
I had a similar incident years ago on my dads Chevy Celeberty it was a piece that look like a motorcycle brake disc pad that was built into the distributor but I'm thinking this car is nothing like this as far as the engine and this was years ago. Probably some type of sensor
I'm also having a problem with the steering column and key.Key will not turn the switch and I have to turn steering and find the locking point (1/2 sometimes 1 full turn !) Then jiggle key while moving the steering wheel in the locked position . Any updates fro earlier posts??
Response From Hammer Time
This is an old thread that belongs to someone else. If either of you need help, then you need to start a new question of your own.
Response From Tom Greenleaf
First - get some code readings and use the info as the direction to chase down. It's no surprise to lose power assist for steering and brakes if engine isn't running as that's what creates the assist power,

You don't need fonts as big as a house. It won't get an answer any faster.
You probably have a problem with one of the blend door actuators. You will need a factory scan tool to diagnose it correctly.
Parking Light Mystery...Someone solve this before I go crazy

Question From Guest on Parking Light Mystery...Someone solve this before I go crazy
I own a 2005 Chrysler Crossfire and for some reason there is an option on the "light dial" (a little plastic wheel button with 5 different settings) to turn on the parking lights independently from left, then to right. No other lights (besides the parking lights) are on except the particular side you choose. In what situation is that ever going to be useful? Whats the point? Why go through extra electrical design for nothing? Someone help with this one...
Response From Tom Greenleaf
That's standard fare for places in Europe. You would leave the lights on, on the side towards traffic when parked on a street. Ever wonder why we call them "parking" lights? That idea saves the drain on the battery for the lights that aren't needed for this.
Haven't spent much time in Europe but things are different. France mandates amber headlights which is spooky at first.
Remember that Daimler-Benz had ownership of Chrysler for a while,

I know what you mean Tom about the car's lighting in France. The last time I was in Belgium, you could always tell that someone from France was coming towards you because of the amber headlights. In Belgium the streetlights are amber; now thatâ€™s different, makes everything look yellow, whatâ€™s better I donâ€™t know. LOL
You know whatâ€™s real scary though, when driving in some parts of France or Belgium is that the road to the right has the right of way?
Driving down a two lane highway and you see a vehicle coming toward an intersection from a secondary road, too your right, you had better be ready to give them the right of way; because their coming through.
Scared the crap out of me, between dodging the oncoming car and my fatherâ€™s screams; â€œdidnâ€™t you read the sign; he has the right of way!â€
No dad; I canâ€™t read French or Flemish; arenâ€™t you the navigator? LOL
I know, off topic but I had to tell the story.
Response From DrElectrics
Tom's right. Europeans use them when parked to notify cars they are there in fog conditions. You can choose what side they go on, as to where you car is situated to traffic. Good call.

Question From dshaunna on Stalling out
2005 Chrysler Crossfire 3.2L 70K miles
Car starts, driving down the road just slowly loses power to the point of stalling. Will restart sometimes but wont other times and has had to be towed. It has even been sitting in driveway just running(in park) and shut off. It restarted at that time. Had it at the mechanic and they allowed it to run for 3 days for 8 hours at a time and didnt stall one time (grrrrr). Help!! This is so frustrating. I have also noticed that on some days....not everyday.....it doesnt feel like it shifts smoothly (automatic transmission). Seems there is a pause at times and sometimes even a rough shift between gears. This is not the case everyday!!

Get the codes pulled and post them here. Need the exact numbers, not a generic description. It has to be troubleshooted while the fault is happening, or everything will test good because it is working. I know this can be very irritating as it seems it never wants to act up in front of a mechanic.
