Follow this steps and fix it. GOD BLESS YOU

Ensure that your vehicle's transmission is in park. If you have manual transmission you can skip this step and move on to Step 2.

  • 2 Press the brake of your car completely down with your right foot. If the key of the car is not in the ignition put it there now.

  • 3
    Hold the steering wheel of your car firmly with your left hand and the car's key placed in the ignition with your right hand. Turn the steering wheel to the right and left while you twist the ignition key as if you are starting the car. Engaging in these two motions simultaneously will release the ignition switch and allow you to turn the car on.

    SOURCE: Cirrus Stalling With Check Engine Light On did not come on the first time it happened

    Your problem sounds like it may be a Mass Air Flow sensor, when it does run bad disconnect the sensor, if the engine starts running ok the sensor is bad, this would be the most common reason for your problem and why it is only intermittent. As far as the overheat do you have a coolant leak?

    SOURCE: 2006 Chrysler Pacifica touring abs light on stays on

    Hi. this light is a warning that concerns the ABS sensor and mechanism assembly. there is a central module and connecting sensors that are attached to each axle/rotor. If any of the sensors become unstable or starts to malfunction, the main module will detect this anomaly and it will trip the light via, the ECM.

    I recommend taking this vehicle in so that the ABS techs can diagnosis this issue and they can pin point which sensor or mechanism is malfunctioning.

    You vehicle seems to operate in a normal manner at this point but, you will actually have to be in a hard braking situation in order to experience this malfunctions results. If you where to initiate a hard brake while the ABS system is in safe mode(light on), your vehicle would simply lock up. It would not provide the ABS actions due to this malfunction that is evident at this point.

    Please rate and god bless:)

    SOURCE: Car stuck in Park, wont switch gears

    check to see if the brake lights come on it may be a problem with a brake switch under the dash not letting the shift lock release. there may be a seperate switch just for it so check and see it there is two switches touching the brake pedal lever if the brake lights come on.

    For the steering problem first at all check it the fluid level.
    For the Transmission, if you recently replaced the fluid this MUST BE a ATF+3. Never use others like Dexron or Mercon. So, first, let me know what kind of fluid you put on in.

    Low voltage on this vehicle causes all kinds of problems...The ECM has gone in to "LIMP" mode, if you are lucky it's just the TPS sensor. Will need to know what the fault codes are to confirm. If you have Onstar you can call in to them and they will retrive the codes from the ECM. A high end diagnostic scan is recommended because often codes will be set by low voltage and false sensor readings....Good luck, i hope this helps.

    this sound to me like at first I thought it was a fuse, as the problem went on it shifted more toward a weak cell in the battery, if a weak cell sits for a little while the battery will not hold the charge in that cell and that will cause loss of power, "its charge", in tne other cells. you had mentioned you used another battery and it ran great but when the battery was removed, things went wrong. You may check to see if there is water in your battery
