      Only you know how old the battery is--they can fail in 2 to 4 years or last a long time

      Have you not tested the battery to answer that question?

      Does appear the battery may have failed with what your saying

      Could be the alternator failed & took out the battery or both are gone

      Get the battery & charging system tested & working properly,then move on
      to the steering issue if it is still there

    Front end shakes at 70 mph
    Car drives fine until you reach 70 mph then it begins to shake. Shaking continues until you tap brakes or acceleration. What could this be ?

      Have your tire balanced at a shop. If this does not fix the problem, have your front end alignment checked. Is the shaking a slight left-right wobble felt in the steering wheel or an up-down bounce in the steering wheel? If neither of these are felt through steering wheel then most likely the culprit is in the rear end.

    What is YAW - ESP suspension
    As I hit a bump in the road, the car not only jumps, but also wavers/rolling sideways. It feels like swimming sideways. Somebody says:' Its the YAW linked in with the ESP. Is it complicated to repair? The car has only 39.000km and is under factory warranty.

      There are three (3) dimensional axis (axes) through the vehicle centerline monitored by the suspension control system or ESP; pitch (front to back rotation about the X axis horizontally), roll (circular like a clock position viewed from front, or Y axis),and yaw (left or right rotation about the vertical or the Z axis). So, the 2d or two dimensional would be X and Y axis, where 3-D would be the X, Y, and Z axis.

      If the vehicle is still under the warranty, then return to the local dealership for a diagnosis of the Electronic Stability Program system and the sensor module;
      MODULE, SENSOR. Dynamics, Electronic Stability. Lateral Acceleration and YAW Rate

      look at the strut if it is wet with oil inside the spring i would say it's struts if the strut is dry check wheel bearings and make sure some of the plastic rivets havent pulled out of the inner fender.

    Steering requires excessive effort. Just had the rack & pinion assembly replaced
    Prior to replacing the rack & pinion the steering behaved perfectly 95% of the time, but occasionally, at low speed the steering would suddenly become so stiff that I could barely turn the wheel. After replacing the rack & pinion, the steering seems OK except very ...

    My steering rack needs replaced ater hitting a pot hole- the parts guy asked if it was firm steering or sports steering.
    how do i tell? I have looked through the owners manual and it does not say.

      Check the codes; either the SBB for firm feel steering, or SBA for standard steering. Chrysler Corporation "Sales Codes" are found on the "Body Code" plate.

      Check the various on-line vendors; www.autopartswarehouse.com, www.RockAuto.com, www.partsgeek.com, to list only a few. For example, they (RockAuto) list the rack and pinion assembly from around $158.00 (minus core charge) for your vehicle.
