I have a 2013 Dodge Challenger SXT with automatic

Customer Question

I have a 2013 Dodge Challenger SXT with automatic transmission. While driving yesterday, a high pitched whining sound started and lasted for about 3-4 seconds...not loud, but audible. The car then lost power and would not move when in drive or reverse. The check engine light came on also. Later when the tow truck came, I was able to drive the care forward for a short distance, but nothing in reverse. When it was dropped off at the garage, again it would move forward in drive a short distance, and also reverse, but then nothing again after that. The are no other sounds or problems that I see.
JA: Is the power loss consistent, or does it fluctuate?
Customer: It is consistent.
JA: Are you fixing your Challenger yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I am not fixing it myself. It is at a local garage but cannot be worked on until next week.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: I think that would be it for now.

Good morning and welcome to JustAnswer!!

My name is ***** ***** I have worked for a Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep dealership for 19 years and I will do my best to help.

The noise may have been your front pump in the transmission fail which is why it will not move, but we won't know until you can get the codes that are stored in the PCM with a scantool.. Once you get the codes post them here so I can help you get it fixed..

Talk soon,
