I do see that there are a couple of different Technical Service Bulletin’s (TSB’s) that may be associated with your 2007 Dodge Charger. I would first contact the dealership to verify whether or not the issue would be covered.
This issue could be caused by a problem within the transmission, but it could also be caused by any number of problems. There could be a problem with a control module, a wiring issue, a torque converter, or a failing actuator.
