Hi kimbob. Chances are that if the tranny works fine normally but does not after the check engine light comes on, you are dealing with a sensor issue. It doesn't mean the sensor is bad however, it's just that something is telling your tranny something it doesn't want to hear. You need to find out what's being said and whether there is any truth to it. Put this on in front of your local Dodge service manager. Good luck!
