I am a Sad mopar owner right now... 1 Week, 4 Days ago  
My 392 scat pack charger has 4,000 miles in it and its been at the dealer for 2 weeks and the dealer can not figure out whats wrong with my car On cold starts it stalls out but throws no codes. I lurked a few forums and found one guy with a challenger that had the same issue and fca finally gave up and bought the car back from him.

Anyone heard of a similar issue and figure out what it was?

This is the other car

Does it happen with enough frequency to put a fuel pressure gauge on it before cranking?

That would be my guess for a possible cause

Sounds like they need to start throwing parts at it. Like a ECM and harness
Dealers don't like doing that because they have to justify the parts to warranty

Also hope they checked the remote start system

The guy with the silbet challenger got a new ecm, harness, a dozen sensors and a battery of other items. Im sure fuel pressure is one of the first two things checked, right next to spark. air is a gimme

I meant to say hook up a fuel pressure gauge before starting and monitor it to see if it holding steady or dropping off a few seconds after the engine is cranked causing it to stop running

Just guessing but it should hold at least 50 psi

FCA needs to buy you out at original purchase. Then take the car and figure it out. If there are two out there with the same problem, its happening too often. Just my 2 cents. Good luck! My father-in-law had a Chrysler intrepid that would suddenly shut off anywhere, anytime. Even with a monitor connected nothing showed up. Going 70 miles and hour and suddenly dead.

Jason that sucks. Hope you figure it out soon. Red looks better at 65 than 0.

Mi has a lemon law but I'm sure he don't meet the requirements to use the lemon law yet.

Just spent $400.00 getting a radiator put in my daughters 2010 PT Cruiser. I'm not too happy with Mopar either. My third (and last) one for sure.
