There is already a thread on stalling, but last night coming home from work mine stalled three times at stop, once it restarted by itself the other two I had to restart, and I just had it in for an oil change yesterday morning and the only thing they found wrong was the computer said at 4000 KM the wrong key was used and I've never used any other key. I start to wonder if the key is not transmitting all the time and the security is shutting the car off. I'll have to take it back and see if the computer recorded anything.

It restarted by itself??? Whoa.

The computer said the wrong key was used?? Ok, it wasn't.. But that implies there is a log being stored, like a black box, then....??!??! I wonder how much history it keeps?

The black box on vehicles has been around for a while,it will tell how fast
you were going if airbags deployed,if brakes were applied etc..
In a case in which you have been charged with an accident the info
can be court ordered as evidence.
You thought big brother wasn't watching-SURPRISE!!!!

Is the stalling limited to the 1.8/5 speeds only?

The update is for vehicles built before 07/35/06. Ther is no service bulletin for this. The flash is to improve vehicle launch chariteritics and idle undershoot for thhe 1.8 ltr. Ther are working on it and more improvements will be forthcoming in November. All you can do is ask your service guy to download the latest flash updates if yor vehcle was built before the date posted above and it should improve your driveability. As I posted in the other forum I am going to wait till Nov. but I have talked to my mechanic and he said anytime I'm ready he will flash it with the lasted software no problem.

Thanks for the clarification :) I guess I will wait also… It does get kind of embarrassing when I have a car full of people and it stall… they all look at me like what you don’t know how to drive a stick!

Please Please Please post the TSP # for this when it is available! I have the same problem with my 1.8L, and it's really annoying! The delear said they couldn't find anything when I had it in, but if I have a # to give them, they can do it.
