Whenever this warning or any other stays on in the dash it id indicating that the systems control module has detected a fault, it then disables the system as long as the light is on. You must now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and "scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the problem(s)

Dodge has a bulletin for this but it must set a code. The valve keepers have an updated design , also there have been some problems with lifters. Dodge will not do this under warranty unless they can reproduce the problem. I have this happen intermittantly
over 3 times a week. Dlr won't touch it!!!

Same thing happened to my 2005 dodge magnum. Took it to the shop, we thought it was a computer issue. Flashed the computer and it didn't help. It ended up being the thermostat and some other parts. The shop had to remove the whole front grille to replace a part that went straight through the top of the engine. The part is plastic and had cracked and was slowly spewing coolant all over the engine. The car was basically overheating but so little that it was not evident at first. Once they replaced all of that the lights stopped coming on. Very frustrating to say the least.

It sounds to me like you need to find a mechanic that knows what he is doing. The "Red lighning bolt" Is the electroninc throttle control (ETC) warning lamp. Your mechanic is probably not getting any codes because he is probably using a cheap generic OBD code reader that can only access continuous memory fault codes. Most of these code readers cannot access current codes, manufacturer specific codes, or read the data stream from the computer.
You should also access the OBD readiness monitors to see if any of them are showing "Not Complete". This can be a very good indication that the PCM is losing battery power intermittently. There are several things that can be tested and verified without any codes.
With all that said, you should also be aware that 2005 Dodge Magnums that fit certain VIN criteria, equipped with 2.7L engines are subject to a service campaign (voluntary manufacturer recall) for problems with the electronic throttle control systems. If you do not know if this recall has been completed already on your vehicle, I would recommend that you contact your local dealer and have them run your VIN to see if this bulletin applies to your vehicle, and if so, has the recall been completed. You might just get the thing fixed for FREE!
The Service Campaign Bulletin number is D29, Dated July 2004
Related Reference Number: RC-D29-04
Otherwise, the only other suggestion I have for you is to take it to a different mechanic. It only took me about 5 minutes to come up with the information I have posted here. Any auto tech worth his salt could have given you the same information in about as much time as this has taken me....
