    There are several reasons why your car stalls when driving

    Ignition
    If the spark plug wires, plugs or coils are faulty and are causing the engine to misfire, the engine will run rough. This may also cause the car to stall when driving. Generally, it will start back up, but it may be difficult to keep the car running.

    Fuel System
    Should the fuel pump go bad, the car will stall while you are driving, as no fuel is getting pumped up to the engine. Bad injectors in a multi-port system will make the car run rough, which can cause a stalling situation, but generally, the car will restart.

    This is the worst scenario since you own a Chrysler which is a dodge by the way
    Dodge vehicles have a similar shut down feature. The shut down feature in Dodge vehicles is located in the computer. It is called the auto shut down relay. It will shut the vehicle down if the vehicle rolls over. There is no way to manually turn it back on. If this switch goes bad, the only way to fix it is to replace the computer.

    If you already check all other option, does it include cleaning your MAF sensor and its electrical connector? Is your check engine light ON?
