Scenario: remote start car (factory), get in car, turn key to run, step on brake and attempt to shift to Reverse and car dies. Has also happened at a stoplight. No stumble, no warning lights, just cuts out dead. Restarts and drives fine.

Had new alternator and battery installed in July.

What is going on???

HELP!!!

I'd look at the data stream to see if the computer sees the brake light switch status correctly.

Just to be clear, is he taking the car out of gear at a stop light?

The interlock prevents thieves from stealing "remote started" vehicles. You must take some action. Either turn the key to "on" in the case of an old-school setup, or push the "start button" or something similar.


People who count on their fingers should maintain a discreet silence.

That’s the Chrysler anti-carjack feature. My first instinct would be to replace the ignition switch. They can cause funky behaviour.

Even if it happens at a stop light while driving?

Change the fob battery or try the other fob with a fresh battery.

Happens to me sometimes when using remote start and get in, turn key and step on brake. You just need to turn key once inside snd wait a bit longer before stepping on brake and going in reverse.

What happens at a stop light? Engine just cuts out while you are holding down the brake or?

Yep, waiting at stop light, go to press gas on green and it's dead, restarts immediately. The 2011 has keyed ignition, not push button either.

What happens when you don't remote start the vehicle?

UPDATE today: remote started car, got in, turned key to run, car dies. took out key and restarted car. Red "security" light (according to manual) blinks about twenty times, then a chime sound, and it turns off. Car drove fine after that. I did not remote start again and made 2 stops. Car had no issues or dying condition. Can a Chrysler garage scan the car and find out why the security light is blinking and the car dying then?

A blinking security light usually means the security system has trouble reading the RFID signal from they key.
Do you have a second set of keys? Try using them and see if it persists. You may need a new key.

two keys, fob built into the key. One is new, under a year old, and one is original.

Turn the ignition switch on and off 3 times reasonably fast and check the odometer. Check YouTube for some videos on this.
