Question about Cars & Trucks
This sounds like it could be a distributor module that is failing. I would have a diagnostic run on it by a mechanic. I know that's not the answer you were looking for but I believe it will save you money over trying all kinds of "home remedies" like running dry gas and the like on it. Then you'll know for sure what you're dealing with.

Low on transmission fluid. The tranny fluid can only be checked by Chrysler, there is no dip stick, because you have to know the motor temp to be able to know where the fluid should register on the dip stick. Crazy!
Its not slipping now, but shifts hard. Has to be looked at by Chrysler again, but its done this since Ive had it, so I didnt realize it was a problem....

Sounds like a RFID issue. Your key most likely has a chip inside of it. Most of the time people will have multiple keys on their key chain that can cause interference with the receiver in your steering column. Try using the one ignition key to start.

A reason for hard shifting could be a problem with many things with various degrees of seriousness. It could be your ATF( automatic transmission fluid) is low or broken down and old. This would cause the hardness and the reason for stop and go traffic effecting it. Another possibility is your transmission is just shot, and the timing gears inside are worn and not properly shifting at the correct RPM causing a **** during shifting.
Some possibilties, not all!

SOURCE: The engine shut down while on stop and go traffic. Tried to restart but the throttle was weak and shut down again. After shutting everything down for 5 minutes, restarted the engine. The throttle w
If the car is having trouble maintaining idle (the tach dips and car dies) the common causes are the idle control valve and camshaft position sensors. The cam sensors failing will be indicated by a check engine light.
The ICV can removed and cleaned with good results (I think there is a write up on bimmerfest) or purchased new for about $100.
While you are in there check the intake boot that is Y shaped for cracks, it's prone to fail and will mess up your idle too.

That should be it for fuse compartments..
If its not the fuse(s) or relay it might bethe switch,, or the motor..
Try to determine if there is power getting to the switch,, if so see if there is power to the motor..
You can find replacement parts pretty cheep on-line..
Hope this helps !!
