    Our's does the same thing. It also idles really bad just before it stalls and then gives the engine light, which sometimes doesn't always come one when it idles really rough. I went to Autozone and had them check the engine light to see what the issue was and they said that there was a misfire in the engine. Could be due to a bad spark plug or a bad spark plug wire. I have yet to change and of the spark plugs or check them so not sure if that really is the issue.

    I have a problem with my 2002 Hemi 4x4 automatic trans.
    it stalls like it's a manual trans as if I were to let the clutch out to fast., when it warms up it seems to do it less but still does it way to often. it seems like the torque converter is locking up.(I've only got 26000 miles on this truck)

    I've had the same problem with my 05 magnum. Took mine to the dealership and they updated the computer and said that would fix it. So far it still stalls, not often but it still does.

    My magnum has stalled out at a stop, slows and surges while driving even at high speeds, and check engine light has turned on and off. ??

    You may have a dirty throttle body and idle speed air bypass valve, clean them and retest for stalling.

  • Dana Pugh Jul 21, 2013

    Need to replace the throttle body with a brand new one, about a $300 part, but it will fix the stalling problem.

    Replace the throttle body with a new one, my car is fixed.

I have a 2005 Magnum and was also having this problem. Stalled out a few times and continued to idle rough and feel like it was going to die when I would slow down. At times it would feel like I would get a hesitation and then a surge. Engine light would go on for a day or so, then go out for a few days. First time I took it in, the dealership told me that it was a broken seal (I don't know where), but they replaced it and it continued to happen. The second time I took it to a mom & pop shop, and they told me that it was the oxygen sensor/altimeter, replaced it (only a $35 part), and I haven't had a problem since. That was 6 months ago. Hope this helps...

My 2005 dodge magnum keeps shutting off when ever i come to a stop did system check alternator starter battery are all good what could it be

Hi Andre, I'm AL the owner of Big As Auto Repair in St Charles Mo

I look forward to helping you with your problem.

Andre, the red light you see when it stalls is normal because that light will always be on when the engine is not running. Here's what it sound like you issue is. You could have 2 issues. (1) The most likely is a vacuum leak. Here's how to check it for a vacuum leak. Buy a can of spray carb cleaner, have a friend keep the engine running while you spray around the intake manifold and throttle body. When the engine dies then you have found the area the leak is in. (2) The Idle Air Control Motor could be bad not allowing it to idle up when you stop causing it to die. Have your friend keep the engine running again and tap on the motor with a wrench or something similar, and after tapping it a few time see if it will idle, if it does you need a motor.

2006 dodge magnum I was in an accident rear ended

speed sensor is fitted to the abs system. if the abs system is fine with no faults coming up then it is down to the dash. now the dash is the most sensitive part, if you hit the dash to hard it can make this happen. also can make the connection to the dash and wiring come apart. braking the circuit. taking the dash out and cleaning the pins that connect the dash to the wiring can sort this out. failing this the speedo its self may be damaged and need replacing. you can hit the dash in an accident and you would not even know you have hit it. your brain does not register the movment.

Bas light dodge magnum

Same thing happened to my 2005 dodge magnum. Took it to the shop, we thought it was a computer issue. Flashed the computer and it didn't help. It ended up being the thermostat and some other parts. The shop had to remove the whole front grille to replace a part that went straight through the top of the engine. The part is plastic and had cracked and was slowly spewing coolant all over the engine. The car was basically overheating but so little that it was not evident at first. Once they replaced all of that the lights stopped coming on. Very frustrating to say the least.

The electronic throttle control light is on in my dodge magnum and my car is stalled what do I do to fix it?

Your throttle pedal is electronic and not controled by cables anymore. So there is sensor that sense's what postion your throttle body needs to be opened or closed. The sensor probably needs to be replaced.

The whole pedal assembly will have to come out and be replaced as it is all one unit. They are easy to take out. I learned about these at the SRT Track Expereince when the Charger that I was driving stopped having so much go and the ETC light came on. They showed us how to replace them and told us that they have to replace them all the time and keep them in stock due to people mashing the pedal. It is all plastic and you don't have to mash these like the old system.

You can try resetting the ETC as well. Place your car in the run position without starting and depress the gas pedal and release all in 2 seconds (1 down and 1 up). You should hear a confirmation "ding" if done correctly and you have know reset the sensor to know when you have open throttle.

You are still safe to drive your vehicle but you need to get it fixed or you are not going to get good performance.
