problem #2

Vehicle stalls intermittently with out warning at any speed including in park and while idling. When this occurs power steering is lost, gauges freeze in last position, no check engine light. Vehicle starts right back up without hesitation. During my 7 minute drive to work it may still once or not at all up to 7 times. Vehicle is currently sitting at a Dodge dealership garage where they are unable to diagnose it due to vehicle not giving and codes even with it stalling for them multiple times. I already replaced the crankshaft position sensor and it didn't fix the issue. My options are take my car back still stalling or replace the PCM $500-$900 which may not be the problem then I'm out the money. I guess fingers crossed since no one at this garage has ever seen a vehicle not throw a code with them witnessing the issue

The vehicle started to swerve into the other lane on the highway, and as I attempted to regain control with both hands firmly on the wheel, and gentle steering, I found I still had no absolutely no control with the steering, it was completely loose it was disconnected. At that same time, I went for my brakes, only to find they all of a sudden were not functioning either. The vehicle eventually swerved into the fence of to the side of the freeway, then the vehicle to flip two times.
