I'm thinking of starting a new thread called 2018 Stalking Issues.
That way, the authorities would get involved and maybe Chrysler would get this thing figured out.

I thought I would try and update what has happened since I got the vehicle back and to see if anyone has seen this warning before.

When I got the vehicle back after 36days the service personal advised me that they updated the PCM with (18-001-19 REV. A). They said in no way did it fix my stalling issue as they (FCA) still don't know how to resolve the stalling while the vehicle is in motion.

So this brings me to the most recent stalling issue. I believe the most recent update, 18-001-19 REV. A, did make a difference but not for the better because now when the vehicle stalls it can't be started. I had to have it towed to the dealer and the suggestion by the tow truck driver was to try they remote start when all else failed and surprisingly that WORKED.

My question to you all is have you seen this on the dash. Picture attached.

What is concerning is that I wasn't using the Adaptive Cruise Control, and while it had stalled it is telling me to put it into "D" drive to use it. The weird part was the vehicle was in "D" already and I couldn't get it out of drive while it had stalled and wasn't running. Then sometime when I was out of the van it put itself into "P" all by itself.

I'm not sure FCA has a clue what they're doing. At least before this update I could start the van after it stalled.

If anyone has ever seen this let me know, and what you think.

FCA and Chrysler will never touch this van again until it is recalled. These baffoons are putting out updates every month in a guessing game that is obviously not working.

It is very likely the Boeing and FCA share the same engineering group!!!

Also if anybody has a picture of what was in this update I would appreciate it as FCA said I couldn't have it because it was proprietary (18-001-19 REV. A)

My understanding from a post by Chrysler Cares in a related thread is the latest TSB on this issue is 18-001-19 REV.B (vs REV.A). The REV.B TSB is dated 05/01/2019.

Another Update,

Got the V53 recall done Friday (May 31st) on the vehicle. They inspected the ground, took it appart, cleaned the area and re-attached the ground. The whole area looked clean and proper prior to the recall.

I didn't have a power steering issue but the technician says a ground can cause numerous issues so maybe it will fix the stalling of the vehicle.

Let's wait and see.

I’m having the same issue. I had the recall done and the car has stalled one three times since the recall. Good luck!

Since the recall on May 31st, 2019 was done it stalled again on June 4th, 2019. Some how the yellow "A!" is now stuck on.

Just wow...what a garbage vehicle. This vehicle has got to go.

Check to see if you think the new Technical Service Bulletin released today (6/12/19) might help. Too bad it wasn't released when you had the van in. Just be sure to mention some of the things on the TSB when you take it in. A TSB isn't the same as a recall. Be sure to take a copy of the TSB with you.

We bought our Pacifica in August of 2018, with ~ 9,800 km driven thus far.

Knock on wood, only issue we've experienced is full loss of power steering which has been remedied thus far due to a loosely connected ground cable.
I read about this issue in my Motor Trend magazine. It sounds very much like an issue I had with my 1995 Chrysler Sebring. The vehicle stalled at red lights or when driving at slower speeds. I brought it to different dealerships many times and the problem could never be duplicated. They changed the O2 sensors and did many diagnostic tests. Finally a dedicated mechanic suggested to change the throttle body, even though tests never showed that it was causing the problem. I never had a problem after that. Apparently the throttle body was sticking and caused the vehicle to stall. It was recommended that I have routine checks on the throttle body and the mechanic sprayed a lubricant on it as part of the maintenance. I did attempt arbitration prior to the repair and Chrysler would not buy the car back but did extend my warranty for 10 years/100,000 miles. I kept the car for 5 years after that and didn't have any more stalling issues. I realize my car was a 1995, but the issue sounds so much like what I am reading about the Pacifica. My dash lights would come on and I had to go through a special sequence to get the car started again. I hope this helps.
