2004 Chrysler Crossfire Q&A
2004 Chrysler Crossfire Question: Engine Shutdown
Hi can anyone help with this puzzlement? For no apparent reason My car would be running fine then when come to a stop it would die dead as a doorknob. Had towed to dealler ship put on Machine @ nothings wrong. Then a week later it happened again?? What could this be, and is it very costly? Your help would be very appreaciated. - Ordman
This is one of the more difficult problems to diagnose. The hard part comes in trying to duplicate the problem and then diagnosing it before it "fixes" itself. If there are no codes stored in the engine computer, then I start looking at the fuel supply. Fuel pump, fuel pump relay, stuff like that. - lawrenceg
I had this problem. It would be running and suddenly die at turning in or at a stop light. At a Chrysler dealer they tried to tell me it was the main computer board. A 3000.00 fix. Which it was not. I have also had it to die driving down the road which is extremely dangerous. It was a relay. The contacts in the relay are not connecting. I bought a new one which was around 300.00 and it pops in. Never had another problem. I hope you found your answer. I see it has been a while since you posted. - Visitor
Hi I'm from Albany, GA and just bought my 2004 Crossfire 4/2010. Could not drive it for 2 wks because of this problem. It was the crank shaft sensor. I found this repair on the Crossfire forum. A lot of good info there. Been running great ever since. - Chuck M
It's your Relay on the Right side Relay/PCM box. Its called a Engine Management Relay Part # 5099007AA. It took me two week to figure out this Customers problem at the dealership. it would die out while driving or if they stopped at a store it would not start unless it sat for a hour or so.

Same problem two days after I bought my 04'. Once driving at 70mph and another time at 25mph. They told me it was the crank shaft sensor. It's been running good ever sense - Visitor

I had the same problem. Mine stopped near a garage and their diagnostic equipment could not detect the problem. By the time a wrecker arrived, it started. It cost over $400 dolllars to replace the crank shaft position sensor located at the rear of the engine block..looks like all you have to do is unplug it and put another one in...geez. Also, watch out for the cam sensor...it is located at the front of the engine. - atergo
This will not fix your problem. I had this done twice. Trust me your call will cutoff or not start again . - Fix this dumb car
