Lightening bolt nightmare!

Asked by Sep 16, 2019 at 05:09 PM about the 2006 Chrysler 300

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 06 chrysler 300, 2.7...lightening bolt light came on
and my car started driving very slow...took to
mechanic...he replaced throttle body (brand new part)
thought car was good...the day i got the car back from the
mechanic the car ran great, i started it up that night and
the lightening bolt light came back and car went into limp
mode...I've never had a check engine light since this has
been happening...only the lightening bolt light...so took it
back to mechanic next day....he thought maybe the part
was faulty so he replaced with another brand new throttle
body...drove car to van nuys and while i was on the
freeway that dreaded light came back on and car went
into limp mode...had the car.towed back to mechanic he
ran morw diagnostic and this time it said i had a failing
catalytic converter...just replaced that yesterday...car
seemed to be running really good..picked up speed, gas
wasn't going down as much...drove on the freeway
heading to inglewood and got caught in traffic....when i
slowed down that dreaded light came on and car shut
off...had to try to start it and then drove away quickly
before it could shut off again...made it to where i was
going but at the stop light it happened again...prior to
replacing the throttle body my mechanic checked for all
vaccum leaks...whatever was leaking he repaired....so I'm
going crazy because i don't know what else the problem is
and this is my only car so i need it to run....can anyone
help me with what is wrong with my car?
