Check owners manual, that will display all the lights, secondly, this car would still be covered under factory warranty and the dealer will remove the light while checking the codes. Good luck

Lighting bolt and engine light comes on it turns over but will not start seems as if it is out of gas but it isnt

As the engine light is on there could be a fault code stored in the memory if the memory survived the lightning bolt.

Sensitive Cmos computer chips are easily damaged by any stray static discharge and so it is asking a lot for them to withstand lightning or even the magnetic pulse from a nearby lightning bolt.

The engine management computer has probably sustained terminal damage but that should not be assumed without first checking spark/injection impulses, supply and ground, wiring and connections...

It is of course possible the only damage is to the immobiliser...

Red lightning bolt light

I would say it is the warning light for the electronic throttle control which you had cleaned.
The description should be in your owners manual.

The check engine light with lightning bolt will come on and car will stall and not start back up for about 30 min after I tried to get engine codes but the scan tool will not connect I checked all fuses...

Do your radiator fans come on full speed? If so you are losing communication with your engine control unit! Same with the scanner, it links with the diagnostic interface which is integrated in the instrument panel. These are on the driveline CAN-bus! Do any other lights come on? ie ABS light.The main power relay for the engine control unit can play up usually caused by a faulty ignition switch!

When driving my 04 ram 1500 (5.7 liter) on the highway at about 65 or better the check engine light comes on and then i get the flashing lightning bolt in the left hand corner? ive been reading forums and...

I do not know what the flashing lightning bolt on the left hand corner means, except that reminds me of electrical, but couldn't find a reference to it in my research.

If you have a check engine light, then it probably left a code recorded behind. I would start there.

Ask to have the computer scanned for codes, and this may point in the right direction.

Good luck.

I need to replace the check engine bulb, it's burnt out and i've been told i have to remove the dashboard. How hard is that?

you do not need to remove the dash, just the instrument cluster, to do this, remove the bolt in the hood latch, then the bolt on the other side of the steering column cover panel, then the panel will pop out, this will uncover two screws on the instrument cluster finish panel, remove these two screws, and the three pointing upwards in front of your gauge cluster, this panel will then come out, disconnect battery, remove the four screws and the instrument panel will come out, unlpug it, check to see which bulb is the service light, and replace!
