2007 charger r/t 5.7 engine light popped on and lost transmission for like 15-20 seconds
I was driving down the road at 35mph my engine light popped on and i lost my transmission for 15-20 secs I feathered the throttle to see if it was slipping or completely out and the it kicked back in. On the way home I had my cruise set at 60 and out of the blue it went full throttle. Crazy stuff any ideas?

I think your torque converter IS the problem. Because it's the only thing that attaches the engine to the transmission and it's designed to "lock up" at highway speeds for overdrive. If it locks up at idle it will kill the engine. If it locks up at slow speeds ( < 35mph ) the vehicle will lurch/buck... And if it wont move in forward or reverse I would say it's time for a new/rebuilt transmission
did it restart? the engine stalled, as such you get no engine power no P/S reverts to manual steering, you did not loose steering. same with P/B power brakes, you didnt lose it you lost power assist, brakes will stop just as vast but takes a husky foot. in school (driving) we were though to drive, stalled engine. i guess most school went dumb. (seen it) now stalls engine stall for a vast number or reasons.
do that tuneup not called the 60k mile service point list. did you.? cars ignored all fail, no car runs 300k miles service free, skip them and get stranded, (i promise)
1: lost electric power to the EFI system. 2: engine overheated or lost compression for any reasons (complex) 3: lost spark 4: lost fuel 5: too much fuel, flooding, and stalling. 6: egr sticks open. 7: ISC sticks closed. 8:if not restart, say so and list expands way more...
cars are complex, it's not like a burned out desk lamp. vast complexity and after 2007 , insane complexity. avoid them 2007 and newer, sans NASA engineer.
Oil Change Reminder Lamp: Service and Repair
Engine Oil Replacement Reminder Light
This light acts as a reminder to replace the engine oil.
This light will come on when the ignition key is turned to "ON" and will go off after about a few seconds.
When you drive for about 7200 km (4500 miles) after the engine oil replacement, this light illuminates for about 3 seconds and then flashes for about
12 seconds with the ignition key turned to the "ON" position. If you continue driving without replacing the engine oil, and if the distance driven
exceeds 8000 km(5000 miles), the light will come on. The light will remain on thereafter.
If the light is flashing, we recommend that you replace the engine oil at an early opportunity depending on the driving and road conditions. If the light
comes on, replace it as soon as possible.
Resetting the system
The system must be reset after the engine oil replacement. Reset the system by the following procedure:
1. Turn the ignition key to the "OFF" position with the odometer reading shown.
2. Turn the ignition key to the "ON" position while holding down the "TRIP METER" reset button.
Hold down the knob for atleast 5 seconds. The odometer indicates "000000" and the light goes off.
If the system fails to reset, the light will continue flashing.
To confirm the clutch is slipping , drive at about 35mph in 5th gear and then put your foot to the floor (making sure the road in front is clear!) IF the engine note increases along with the revs and the speed stays the same then it is the clutch that needs replacing.
yes shifter software is the problem.. depending on the hardware version you may just need a software update ... as for the no start always try to disconnect the battery and reconnect it before spending money once its out of warranty.. you would be amazed how much that can fix buy doing that
this sounds very much like a torque converter/transmission issue. i will assume the transmission dial you're speaking of is the tachometer? which measures engine revolutions per minute. to confirm, one could possibly unplug 4-wire connector on transmission near radiator and test drive. this keeps the transmission from going into torque converter lock-up.
