electrical locking system has failed. if you use the electrical lock system, the doors do not electronically open, you must manually push the locks up to open and exit the vehicle. you cannot manually push the locks up to exit the vehicle unless you hit the electric door button up and then and only then can you push the button up and then open the door. if you do not hit the electronic button, which does not electronically unlock the doors because it has failed, then you cannot even exit the vehicle. you are locked in, cannot escape. manually as well as electronic door locking system has failed. if an accident causes the driver to be pinned in the vehicle, or unconscious or the vehicle mangled in such a manner that you could not push the electric button up, my children (8 year old daughter and 11 year old son) will not be able to get out of the vehicle. what if the vehicle was on fire and they couldn't get out, if we were unable to push that button or they were unable to push that electric button up, the button must be pushed by the driver's side in order for it to allow you to unlock the vehicle, it would result in possible death. we told dealer, they will not fix, they want to charge us $100.00 per door, i barely make ends meet, i don't know what to do. i have to drive to get to work, the dealer could care less.....we spoke with chrysler, they could care less and they say they have not had a fatality so until they do, they will not cover this safety issue. someone has to be injured or die in order for them to fix very serious safety problem. you cannot get out of the vehicle, by manually trying to unlock the doors, if the electronic opener is not pushed first, then you cannot manually unlock the doors, the drivers electric door button must be pushed up, even though it does not make the doors electronically unlock, if it is not at least pushed, you are locked in and cannot unlock the doors because the lock will not go up....you are trapped. *nlm

we purchased this vehicle from v & h ford inc, marshfield, wi. in june 2003. the next day after i got it i started it & it started to squeal. my husband noticed transmission fluid leaking as well. we took it back to the dealer, we were told that the fan clutch & serpentine belt were shot, as well as a little leak in the transmission. they put some kind of sealer on it & continued to leak. (also during all of this time, our rpm's kept jumping.) after the 3rd time, they said they did a factory authorized repair & put what was referred to as a "cock ring" in it to seal it. this seams to have taken care of this. then when the truck was put in reverse it kept clunking, the u-joints went out next, then the latch broke on our glove box. meanwhile the rpm's keep jumping, it has been back in the shop a total of probably 7 to 8 times so far. our service engine light came on & flashed the code of fuel injector #8, when it was put through the diagnostic test, however we are learning this is still not the problem. last weekend i was going to put the truck in the garage. i put in drive, and it took off on me without me even touching the gas. it has done this several times now while on the road. now for the past week, when you leave a stop sign, it will shift once and stay at about 3000 - 3500 rpm and will not shift until you are ready to stop. when you try to stop the trottle sticks and the truck wants to go. we are at loss what to do. we have obviously purchased a lemon that it a hazard to be on the road. to trade it in or try to sell it outright seems to be a crime, because we know the horrible things wrong with it. i am certain that it is only a matter of time before my husband & i and our 2 children are seriously hurt or killed by the spuratic behavior of this dangerous vehicle. please advise us what to do. is there a lemon law or any thing that can help us. meanwhile, we are stuck making payments on this . *ak
