I have the exact same vehicle with only 80,000 miles on it and it is doing the same thing. So far Chrysler has done all of the above to the tune of $800 dollars CND and they still have not fix the problem. It is going back in today (July 4, 2012). There is also and update for your engine computer that they put in and for the extra $150 dollars, this did not help either. did you eventually find what the problem?

I changed the whole fuse box mount on the left hand size under the hood and was told to not have more than one or two keys on key chain because I had a bunch of keys on my key chain. It work and hadn't had the problem since.

After and extensive search on the internet, I determined it was a "Throttle Position Sensor" or TPS. It cost $29 dollars and I installed it myself. Bingo!!!!! Problem solved. Go to utube and watch the following video.

I bought a 06 Ram quad cab Hemi 4x4 (38,000 miles) with the same problems. It would stall when coming to a stop, stopping on an uphill grade, and it would do mini neutral drops while accelerating from a stop during right turns. It also had a delayed engagement when placing my trans into drive. I had my tranny serviced at my normal shop (flush and filter change, 450 bucks). No improvement. I then changed my plugs and EGR valve, still no improvement. I took it to a transmission specialty shop and they told me that it was low almost 4 quarts. They informed me that the fluid needs to be checked in neutral, not in park like how I checked it. I know this sounds too simple but all my engine and transmission problems were solved, just like that. If you haven't already fixed your problems, I hope this helps. By the way, my mileage still sucks (about 10-11 mpg w/35"s), but I'm happy now.
#249 of 262 low voltage codes 562 and 700
Sep 10, 2012 (11:36 am)
my check engine light came on and when i read the codes i had 562 and 700. I have so far replaced the battery and then i noticed the alternator wasn't showing it was charging when ever i loaded down the battery replaced the alternator and same results with the radio on and air conditioning on at low idle the gauge would be well left of center. and now just recently when ever i drive it and go from drive to park with the gear shifter it dies. Does anyone think maybe the PCM is going bad? At times the idle is erratic

I had a similar problem with mine it turned out to be my crank sensor or throttle position sensor. I also changed out my speed sensor. The speed sensor was causing it truck to idle erratically, and the cranksensor and tps was causing my truck to die sporadically. An easy check is to pull the 30am ignition run fuse if your truck idles normally with it out the sensors are going bad.

but why would taken the shifter from drive to park kill the engine like turning off the key and wouldn't that pop it own code if either one of those was bad. and it seems to get worst when the engine was loaded down. Sorry my first guess was a Power control module just don't want to jump at that for the time being
