After removing the connectors I inspected them and all the connections looked fine but had come a little loose from the computer itself. So I used a zip tie to strap the connection (orange with power feed) to the computer. This solved the problem and took me 10 minutes. : ).. Hope that helps others too. Just a poor design by dodge.
I bought my charger RT in LA and brought it up to Oregon less then a month later. It ran awesome during the first month no problems. I let my wife drive it for the first time once I got to Oregon and it wont start after going to the store and parking for 20 minutes. Long story short....ended up putting in new PCM. Not cheap!!

Ever since the new computer was installed the car would stall out pretty much always. There were days were it didnt happen at all (but those were so few and far between that I could count them on one hand) and days were it happened 20 times on my way to work. Had to get a new alternator Im pretty sure due to this problem. F me.

1 year later....

This morning it stalled out 13 times in a 7 minute freeway drive, 3 of those times I had to actually pull over and wait for the TCM to boot back up so it would go into gear. Always starts back up just fine no matter how many times it stalled but sometimes the trans would not engage.

Anyway this renewed my search to find answers. This post seemed ridiculous but I had tried everything else including jumping the emergency shutoff relay which fried my oxygen sensors.

I decided to give the zip ties a try because nothing else made sense other than a short of some sort and well it doesnt get much easier then this.

Wouldn't you know, $0.30 in zip ties later and my car runs normal, has not stalled since and aside from needing the oxygen sensors replaced seems to be running 100% better then it was.

Thank you SCOTT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
