8/13/2014 JimmFirst step - have the stored fault codes or check engine light scanned - for free - at any local auto parts store; Advance Auto, Auto Zone, NAPA. Then, post a reply as 'add answer' with the specific code for more assistance. There may be a fault code stored in the OBD memory which may not be displayed as a check engine light.
Possible Causes of Engine Hesitation or Stumble:
Dirty fuel injectors (cleaning the injectors often fixes this)
Dirty air filter (change filter)
Dirty / clogged fuel filter (change filter)
Bad MAP (manifold absolute pressure) sensor
Bad TPS (throttle position) sensor
Bad or dirty MAF (mass airflow) sensor
Low fuel pressure (leaky fuel pressure regulator or weak fuel pump)
Vacuum leaks (intake manifold, vacuum hoses, throttle body, EGR valve)
Bad gasoline (fuel contaminated with water or too much alcohol)
Sometimes, what feels like a hesitation is actually ignition misfire rather than lean misfire. The causes of ignition misfire may include:
Dirty or worn spark plugs
Bad plug wires
Weak ignition coil
Wet plug wires

7/24/2014 jdlSome makes and models can go into theft lock when battery voltage is lost. So can the radio? I'm not up to speed on Chrysler security systems.
Check for applicable trouble codes. At the least, you need an obd2 code reader to check codes.
If you think it is not security issue, check for voltage at the fuses, some go hot with the key on, some are hot all the time. You can check positive and negative cables at the battery.
I will check for relearn procedures for your security system? can't guarantee anything, you may have to take it to shop?
7/28/2014 AutoMD Membercheck the battery wire to starter maybe loose or bad also check the nav wire too

7/25/2014 Chevy doctorMore than likely the head gasket is starting to go. You need to test for hydrocarbon gases making into coolant system with a tester and special fluid that turns color if the gases are leaking BY gasket, if it doesn't turn color your in the clear. Other option is to blow compressed air known as a cylinder leakgage tester through each cylinder spark plug hole until you see bubbling coming up through radiator or reservoir.
One other thing you can try first is to back flush your heater core with a garden hose and blow out you condenser/radiator fins with a garden hose. See if this reduces your temp.

7/13/2014 CVOStarter ???
Try this tip.
First, check the battery and starter cables for their tightness or free of corrosion and physical damaged.
See this Starting system simplified diagram. Have a help from an assistant to crank the engine, use a 12 volt light tester or a digital voltmeter, apply it to the starter control circuit.
If there is light or 12 volts and the starter isn't cranking, then the starter is the culprit. Have the starter to bench test for free at the local auto parts stores.
If there isn't no light or no volts, then the ignition switch is the culprit.
Check the starter relay and position the Automatic transmission shifter in neutral.
Note: a 3/4 charge battery is 12.50 volts
A discharge battery is 11.75 volts.
A battery under a cranking load and it is reading less than 7 volts,it will be a recycled battery.
7/15/2014 AutoMD Membera lot o minivans from mopar have had ignition switch problems. if starter is getting signal, then switch is most likely cause.
