I just got it back from the shop and it has to go back. The ignition light is flashing, and the engine light is one. It only starts sometimes. When it does run it only goes 35 mph. The navigation system is acting up again. Its been two whole days.
I have put on 2000 miles on this and non stop problems. NON STOP.

Well as it turns out the problems were all related to a bad 12V battery. But then when I got it back the brake lights didn't work. .
I like the the hybrid part though. So It could be worse.

Our 09 Hybrid has been in the shop 2 of the past 12 months, one problem after another. We bought it one year ago this month. We haven't seen it for over a month and have no idea of when it will be fixed. We are pretty disgusted.

MY Hybrid goes into the shop, and doesn't get fixed. The hybrid works but the engine like keeps coming on when it goes from electric to gas. The last part took 3 months to build. Thats right they don't carry it in stock. They put it in and the engine light still comes one. That was a $7000 part. They think its a broken wire. Again. I have had over 10 broken wires at different times.
I live in Northern Alberta. I had to put a battery blanket on the 2 volt as it froze last year and no one would work on it for two weeks because I never bought it locally. We will see what happens this winter.

Okay, I live in Texas - so shouldn't have a problem with it freezin; however, we just bought a used 2009 Aspen Hybrid with just under 30K miles last month and coming home off the highway tonight I started smelling something strange like a Sharpie marker - so thinkin electrical or maybe the brakes? I bought an extra warranty package on it, but scared this dealer doesn't know how to deal with hybrids? Trying to find a forum on the cause of this - I am scared to drive it now!

They said they had to replace a TCIM (?) part but Chrysler didn't have it so they had to build it. It took over two months. It would have cost me $7000.00 for the part alone. Glad I have warranty. As it turns out, that isn't the problem. That was 3 months ago. Engine light still comes on when going from electric to gas. Dropped it off three days ago. They think its another broken wire but aren't sure yet. That is over 10 broken wires they found in a year.
Chrylser piece of junk. Brother bought the Tahoe Hybrid, no problems. Might have to sell it and buy a real vehicle.

I think my problem is the dealership. Had it for 3 days. Said it had 9 codes in, erased them and gave it back. Told me there was nothing wrong with it. Three days! I drove it for 1 hour got the engine light on again.
Williams Chrysler in Fort McMurray.
There is a boycott site for them on facebook.
"Boycott Williams Chrysler"
Taking it to Edmonton, will see if they can fix it.
Found out today from the Edmonton Dealership that the $7000 part (TPIM) was poorly made and they had to redisign it, which is why it took so long to replace.

We own a 09 Chrysler Aspen Hybrid. Last Thursday is just stopped running. We towed it to the dealer and they have been trying to figure out how to fix it for a week. Today they tell us it needs the transmission replaced. It only has 65,000 miles. We are the second owners, so it is not covered under warranty. Do you have any advice for us?
#17 of 17 How to change out 12 volt battery

How do I change out the 12 volt battery that is located under the vehicle. I looked all over the Internet and found nothing.
