Question SRT8: die after start + motor shut off + ESP random quick blinks

Hey guys, I also posted this in another SRT8 forum, but I'm hoping you guys may have some insight as well on these issues. Here it is:

The SRT8 started acting weird...I've searched all of the 3 issues above, but haven't found any common grounds to base any ideas off of yet. Started in the last 2 days...Chronologically here is what happened:

*Started with key, died right away. I turned it over again and it started fine. Didn't think anything of it.
*The above happened again the next day...started wondering.
*Hit a bump later on that day, motor shut off while stereo and all other accessories weren't phased. Thought I noticed the ESP light flash in my peripheral vision when it died. I had put in neutral while rolling down the road, started fine and continued driving as normal.
*Today, over a 90 mile drive...I would notice the ESP light blink (1 blink) while going 75 mph down the highway. It was so quick, I would see it flash in my periphs and by the time my eyes went to focus on it, it was already out. It flashed maybe 5 or 6 times that I noticed spaced at random minutes apart.

I'm thinking all of these issues are related to something specifically. Between sensors, ignitions, wires grounding out; I'm not sure what to make of it.

It's going to the dealership to get TSB WK 2300108a (front windows issue) fixed on the 25th. While it's there, I'm hoping I can get whatever this culprit is fixed as well. If any of you guys happen to see any similarities between these feel free to give me your input. Thanks!!

I do have a lockpick installed, no problems for the last few months with it, but that doesn't mean I can't cross that off the list either though correct? I've got Chrysler's Extended Warranty so I'm not too worried about it; I'm going to remove the lockpick before it goes in for sure.

Re: SRT8: die after start + motor shut off + ESP random quick blinks

when you turn the key on does the CEL blink? if so that means the PCM has a stored code. that could help track this down.

the other thing to look for is down on the left of the pedals all the wires come ftru from the engine in that area. i would be checking down there for good connectivity. there are 2 big plugs maybe more
