remote start, push start , and ignition issues

A couple months ago the ABS system popped up on my dashboard and I couldn't use my cruise control. For couple days after that trying to leave my house but the shifter got stuck on park. I had to turn off the car and try again. So I know it's that every time the abs system pops up, wouldn't let me drive it, so I had to trick it to where I can drive it.

I took it to the dealership and it turns out that it had 3 recalls. Sun visors, alternator, and brakes. After 14 days Reno Dodge released the car with no brakes. I had to take it back to them. After two more days they give it back.

The very next day the abs system turned back on and the shifter got stuck again. I turn the car off again and tried it again. This time worked. It did it again the next day and I was able to drive the car with no problem for 8 days straight. The 9th day in the morning I had a hard time turning it on. It took a several times for the engine to turn over. When I was driving it home the wipers went on along with seat belts warning. The engine was revving but trying to shut off. Later in the day we couldn't get it to turn on. So we towed it to Reno Dodge. They text me saying the it needs a new starter and it will cost $760.

Please let me know if similar you have had problems.

I just want this expensive as truck to function properly. It's a dam shame I have to be embarrassed when I go to try and start a brand new vehicle. Fix it!!

Update from Sep 22, 2014: I m leaving work to go get my daughter and the truck won't start heard a hissing noise at my lunch time from rear back tire still could not use push start for the past 2 weeks and now the car is dead. So I'm now waiting to be towed to a dealership. The is a nightmare and to think Dodge use to have top quality vehicles. Hissing, remote start, key, and push start all inactive.

Update from Sep 23, 2014: So I had to be towed yesterday because of clearly the TIPM issue. Called the corporate office to inquire about recall P54 to be informed it is in preliminary stages and I will have to pay for repairs and if my vin checks out I will be reimbursed. So I'm without a car, my child was a daycare until 10 because I couldn't get to her with no vehicle and Dodge is still dragging their feet acknowledging what they already knew.
