Hmmm, this is very strange. I have two articles that I have read that come to mind that I believe will help.

It sounds like this happens all of a sudden when driving given that the speedometer and RPM go down, you say, and for this, please review the following article that addresses the possible causes of your engine's abrupt/sudden dying while driving at this link:

http://yourhandymanzone.com/Your_Handyman_Zone_How_To_Pages_Vehicle_Car_Zone_Cars_Trucks_Vans_Engine_System_Engine_Abruptly_Quits_Periodically_While_Driving.htm

Also, since your gauges go down while driving, in addition to the probable causes mentioned in the article linked above, your problem may be a bad alternator according to this article on the sudden loss of a gauge reading while driving:

http://yourhandymanzone.com/Your_Handyman_Zone_How_To_Pages_Vehicle_Car_Zone_Cars_Trucks_Vans_Alternator_Gauges_Go_Up_And_Down_Like_Crazy.htm

These articles should lead you to a solution.

I have a 2005 Dodge Durango and the oil light comes on but only when I come to a stop but goes off ones I start moving again.


Check your oil level and change your oil pressure sensor. If good, your pressure is dropping at low rpm. Can be a bad gasket or oil pump. Check the oil for antifreeze and antifreeze for oil. If either looks like chocolate milk bad head gasket. If not your pump is bad

Gage showing no oil pressure at low rpm


Old oil can do that as it gets too thin, filter blocked.
Wrong grade of oil can also cause that or worn pump/bearings.

1994 dodge shadow when warm spedometer quits battery loses voltag


I would start with the altenator. The repair is very easy.

Rick after you replace the altenator and the system does not get any better. The system has a draw or short . The vehicle has a body control module . This could be the cause or the power distribution box in the engine were all the relays are is starting to go out. I would take the vehicle in to you local mechanic to check it out if the altenator replacement does not work.
