Engine dies while braking and turning

This has happened 4 times now in my girlfriends '11 V8 Overland. As you're braking and turning the wheel, no more then a half turn to the right, the engine dies. After coming to a complete stop, it starts right up and runs fine. Doesn't do it every time but it as now happened at the same intersection twice, coming off the highway once, and once more at another intersection. Vehicle as been to the dealer about the issue with no luck in fixing. Has anyone had a similar issue or know of a fix? Any help would be great, and thanks in advance.

Re: Engine dies while braking and turning

Just a guess, could it be the recalled fuel relay in the TIPM?

Re: Engine dies while braking and turning

I should have mentioned in my first post that it could be, but the tipm had already been replaced for the recall. Granted, it could have gone bad again...guess it could be worth another look.

Re: Engine dies while braking and turning

Same issue here...2012 Overland V8 4x4...happens when slowing down (braking or coasting), sometimes when turning wheel (other times going straight)...but not frequently...very intermittent & no warning, just steering gets hard & RPM's drop to Zero...push Start/Stop & fires right back up.

Has had all recalls completed, including Fuel Pump relay & Crankshaft sensor replaced.

No engine ECM codes, so no evidence of it occurring, so dealer doesn't know how to proceed at this point...being it's difficult to replicate/duplicate & witness by a technician.

Love my Jeep, but it's concerning...in that if my wife is driving, or if we have kids in future, will it be safe to have them in it??

May have to dump it in near future & look at a 2018 Raptor or Cayenne instead, unless FCA can prove their quality & customer service improves enough to trust them going forward on another JGC.

Sad, but unfortunate & true...as too many owners are having these issues.

Re: Engine dies while braking and turning

I had this on my 2014. Turns out a wire for the crankshaft position sensor had worn the insulation off and would short out when braking as the suspension compressed and the bare wire touched metal. Car would shutoff. Restart fine with no codes. Took a week for the tech to find.

Same issue here. Dealer has no idea how to trouble shoot due it being very intermittent. Will bring back to dealer and have them check the crank shaft sensor wiring.

Re: Engine dies while braking and turning

She's been using her key fob lately and not the push to start button and hasn't had the issue happen. But also going to look into the cps wiring to check for bare wires, any little bit is going to help

Re: Engine dies while braking and turning

The wiring was damaged by rubbing on the front differential, so I was told.

Re: Engine dies while braking and turning

You stand to loose a lot of money if you unload your vehicle every time you have a problem. Take it back and make the them fix it. Have a different tech look at it. You may have to do some investigation yourself because they don't like to spend much time on problems that are difficult to find. I have been there too and they say "I have checked and no codes are present and it act up with me (in the 5 minutes they drove it)." Sounds very familiar!

On my 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee, the dealer replace both drive shafts (under warranty) in the front. I had a terrible noise when accelerating and turning from a stop. It still made the noise after they did all that work. I ended up troubleshooting myself and found a big rock wedged between the frame and one of the skid plates. When accelerating and turning, the torque of the engine cause the exhaust pipe to move and contact the rock amplifying the exhaust noise making the sound. Once I removed the rock ... all was solved! My point is they don't spend much time troubleshooting difficult or abnormal cases. They tend to "go by the book" and don't look "outside the box".

Re: Engine dies while braking and turning

My dealer would probably just say it is normal and nothing wrong with it. You shouldn't brake and turn at the same time. If you have to do such a strange thing make sure that you are at the incline so gravity and not the engine has a chance to work.

Buying Max Care seems to me like a cruel and unusual punishment as I chose (and paid) to be stuck with those idiots couple more years.

Re: Engine dies while braking and turning

Hey:

Got a 2011 O-land that stalls for no apparent reason on occasion --- I thought that this was because of the awesome TIPM recall bypass that was poorly installed some time back.

I am starting to see a common thread of people getting the CPS replaced --- I would like to try to inspect mine to see if that is the issue. No warning given before the stall, no real reason, and has happened while braking or turning (only). Also no codes thrown on the DIC.

Anyone have a picture of the CPS location on the hemi?

Re: Engine dies while braking and turning

I should point out that in the example I gave earlier with the dealer doing work that wasn't necessary, I changed dealerships after that. The new dealership is top notch and have done the majority of my recalls. They have done excellent work and I would recommend them to anyone! They are Liberty Jeep in Patalaska, Ohio. Actually, they are between Granville and New Albany, Ohio. This dealer even took care of a problem that was caused by the previous dealer. Not many dealerships would even touch that one.
