Jeep turned off during U-Turn
So i let the wife drive the new summit to pick up the dog at Petco (his hait cut looks great). She gets the dog, heads to back of the parking lot, makes a u-turn. boom, jeep turns off. she had the wheel turned all the way to the left, and it turned off as she was coming out of the turn.

has this happened to anyone else? Thoughts?

Your idle needs adjustment, it is set to low. Your power steering pump dogged the engine into a stall.

I bet you will be able to repeat this incident. Accelerate and then slow down to an almost stop while cranking the wheel all the way one direction will probably kill it every time.

I'd take it in and see what the can do to fix it.

I never turn my wheel at full lock. I don't like the strain on the power steering pump.
