 Description of the problemMy 2016 ram 1500 almost killed me this morning. Truck has 4,000 miles on it. At 4 am i was driving on i-10 east bound 170 miles from pensacola. Cruise was set at 78 and i was in the passing lane. The road was pitch black. Without any warning the engine lost power and all electrical. Headlights went dark dash board, etc. Needless to say i was panicked and managed somehow to make it to the right shoulder. After getting to the shoulder emergency flashers would not work everything was dead. Just as i was considering getting out of the vehicle power came back on. I put on flashers and after i calmed down returned to the road. The next 200 miles were uneventful. I was scared to drive after dark after such an incident. I have a appointment in foley alabama with dodge next monday morning. Also back in march i was waiting on the left turn lane and the transmission shifted from drive to park all by its self.
