Every so often while driving and sometimes while car is not moving the electronic throttle control light comes on and the car stalls out, sometimes when its on long time the vehicle stability control light comes on, it seems to happen more the colder it is outside, can not seem to find the problem but seems to be a common problem with the Patriot and other Chrysler models not sure why Chrysler hasn't done anything to resolve this issue.

Filling up with gas causes engine to stall. Auto garage says it's the check ball for the fuel tank allowing for overfilling of tank and than fuel getting into the vacuum system which then cause the Jeep to stall within 5 mins. The last time it was in the middle of in intersection with the kids in the car and almost getting hit by a driver not playing attention while my husband pushed the Jeep out of the way till it wanted to start again.
