Sounds very much like a problem I have experienced on and off for a couple of years. If your rev and speedo gauges drop dead, your o/d light flashes and your auto gearbox doesn't like to change through the gears, then the odometer pcb has a failed chip. You can pull it apart and try to resolder the loose chip back on. But be warned this is very delicate job (more suited for repair shop) you could end up flooding other chips with solder (as i did). It can be changed out with one from the wreckers but will have to be re-set to your ks/milage. One solution at this stage, if re-soldering is your option, you can also swap your eeprom chip from your old odometer pcb to your new/used pcb from the wreckers. This eeprom carries all the historical ks/milage used. See some info on tachosoft.com (eeprom info) and info from toyota forums on speedo/rev gauges (pcb failure)

SOURCE: 2001 toyota tundra stalls when put in gear

If the engine stalls abruptly on your Cirrus, as if some one clamped it, then I would suspect that the 'lock-up' function on the torque converter of the transmission is in the lock-up position. That means it is the same as popping the clutch on a conventional transmission car, which cause the same stall. If you can't drive the car, I would call around to several independent transmission shops to find one that is familiar with the Chrysler 41TE transmission and that appears to be honest. Ask if they have a diagnostic readout box to communicate with the transmission control computer. If they do then have the car towed there and let them try a readout. If they get a code 38 or 0740 (depending upon what year model you have there) then that would show that the lock-up is the problem. If you are lucky the problem will be with a solenoid switch or valve in the box on the side of the transmission which can be corrected easily without removing the transmission. Because this possibility (along with about 6 other causes) is worth pursuing, I would want a shop that is not going to talk you into a "rebuild" without first looking into all the possible reasons for the lock-up condition so you aren't "taken for a ride".
So ask friends if they know a good honest shop and check them out as to how well they understand the Chrysler transmission. You may end up at a Chrysler dealer, but insist on their trying all the other possible causes before authorizing removal of the transmission which is a very expensive repair and may not be necessary.

SOURCE: Car hesitates/stalls when engine is warm and car starts to move.

Sounds like a bad motor mount, pop the hood and see if the motor shakes or moves rapidly when u put it in gear holding down the brake.

SOURCE: 2001 impala shifting issue

I have a 2001 base impala and 6 months ago I experienced the same problem. I was driving on the street and all of a sudden my car acted as if it was in neutral. I pulled over and neither of the shifts engaged. The dealership said that my torque converter went bad. Somehow the bad torque converter caused shavings to get into my transmission. They gave me a new torque converter and flushed my transmission. My transmission was almost 2 years old; therefore, it was under warranty.

1996 camry lost speedometer and a/c while driving. Put in new battery and alternator, still no change and now car just lost all power while driving . What is wrong with car?


lost speedometer, what does that mean 0mph at 50? ??????
YES, CHECK all fuses first. all cars, for any electric issues.

A./c lost, (ok there are 6 things that cut A/c some are normal)
one is HVAC dash blower fan must blow or AC brain cuts A.C
this prevent ICE up. (normal)
please:
why guess? please stop guessing and throwing parts and cash.
what does lost all power, driving mean.???
lost engine power (cant drive)
or lost all electric power (a prime reason for EFI to die , for lack of 12vdc electric power)
does lights die on the car, at the moment of problems?
Dash cluster , head lights, any lights.
does engine STALL? (0 RPM is stall) 300 RPM is bad idle.
800 RPM is normal hot idle, never less.

if this is just and engine power issue, (cant drive at all ,or only slow or
slow up hills?)O
my car will not move fast,? in any gear? and transmission don't slip
and no DTC scan codes (checked and smart to do first)

I'd be all over fuel pressure. this is a $20 gauge , that must be connected to the fuel rail to read pressure.
28psi is minimum for all cars.
if i knew what engine was in your car, id look yours up
alldata.com has this info.

the ecu can not report wrong fuel pressure, it cant
so is always and issue, with total engine power loss.
so is skipping 60,000 mile FULL TUNEUP's

if you need those charts they are easy to get. for any car.

tell more get more.... regards

Speedometer went haywire and car stopped


define haywire.?

dead, off, and is odometer off too?
stopped, you mean the car stalled?

when the engine stalls you see the following (driving school 101)
1: quiet , now. from engine.
2: steering and braking get harder. up to 6 times harder.
3: RPM tachometer shows 0 RPM.
4: Speed drops and lands on zero as car stops or you run out of down hill free right.

so did engine stall? does it restart,?
