Sounds like a programming error in the main processor, unhooking the battery will cause more errors or the system to shut completely down, reconnect the battery and see if it will start and drive, if so take it to a dodge dealer and see if there are any software updates that apply, also tell them what it is doing, there maybe a separate one just for the gem module, if applicable.
