2004 dodge caravan

I have 2004 dodge caravan. Last Dec. it stalled between 35-45mph check engine light came on and was flashing. Took it to the dealer paid 900$ 6 months later to the day driving 35-45mph temp go crazy engine light on car dies, no steering. Was able to get it home & my husband took it in. They could not find any problems with any of the codes that came up. Now it has died at a stop light with oil light on.(oil was changed 1000 miles ago) Restarted car no light no problem. Occasionally on starting all of the I guess transmission lights( P D N ect....) come onand go off, which is not the norm. Usually only park is on. Please Help. I have 4 small children and I am afraid it will die when they are in the car. Thanks.

    Engine died, restarted but wouldn't transmission wouldn't engage. Restarted after 5 to 10 minutes & made 40 mile trip home. Has died twice since but restarted and made trip home; no transmission issues these times. 4 months ago, check engine light came on but went off before I took it in.

It seems like bad,dirty or loose wire harness connection somewhere in electrical circuit. This is very difficult to find if engine has problem intermittently. One method may resolve is to unplug wire contacts one by one inspect clean and re-plug. Inspect also all fuses if any loose seated, nad fuse case connections and support.

I have a 2004 dodge durango and the lighting volt stable is on my dash

It has to do with the Electronic Throttle Control. ( as per the owners manual)

12. Electronic Throttle Control (ETC) Light 5.7L
Engines Only
This light informs you of a problem with the
Electronic Throttle Control system. If a problem
is detected the light will come on while the
engine is running. If the light remains lit with
the engine running your vehicle will usually be drivable,
however, see your dealer for service as soon as possible.
If the light is flashing when the engine is running,
immediate service is required and you may experience
reduced performance, an elevated/rough idle or engine
stall and your vehicle may require towing. The light will
come on when the ignition is first turned on and remain
on briefly as a bulb check. If the light does not come on
during starting, have the system checked by an authorized
