    Where do I start!? Okay so I just bought a 06 Chrysler 300c 5.7l hemi with 80k miles. It's been running great for the first week then last night i run inside the gas station for 2 mins and when I got into my car it was shaking bad and the radio wouldn't work. I killed the engine right away. Tried to start it up and nothing so I placed a battery pack on the battery and it started right up. Radio worked again also. A mile down the road my radio,speedo and front windows stop working. Car ended up dying on my 3 miles away. I got a ride to autozone and got a alternator and replaced it quick. It started right up and seemed fine. Started driving away and I noticed my blinkers,wipers,power steering wheel tilt, cruise and front windows wouldn't work also the transmission seems to only work in 1st gear! I can't go over 35mph. Autozone tested the car and said the only code that shows up is my (abs) but has no idea why the steering wheel column isn't working. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!! I'm thinking it's some kind of electrical problem.

    Test the battery if it was not already done. Even a slightly low voltage can cause issues.

    autozone tested it for me and said it's 100% but I'm thinking I'll just buy a battery and see what happens. Thanks a lot!

    I put a new battery in hoping it would fix the issue but it didn't... I'm thinking it has to be the ecu. I idea what else would cause this
