Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2005 dodge ram 1500 5.7 hemi that shuts
down while driving, all of the electrical still works
headlights are bright. Truck will not restart for
about ten minutes. There is a lighting bolt in the
bottom right corner with (  ) around it once this
symbol resets or goes away it will start and might
run fine for the rest of the day or it might do it
again in ten minutes any ideas. Thanks.

Is it wet out every time it shuts down while driving? If so, there is a sensor that is getting wet and takes 10 minutes to dry out... Use a spray bottle with water to find the sensor...

Thanks for the quick response. To answer your question. No its always been dry,and it doesn't do it at the same time, it could do it ten minutes after starting or it could run for hours before it will shut down.
