need help with dash warning lights

I just bought a 2006 Charger with the 3.5 motor. It was a theft recovery car, so I got a pretty good deal on it, but no owners manual.
Twice now on consecutive days I got two warning lights on the dash.one looks like a lightning bolt between parenthesis and the other looks like a car skidding. I asume the car skidding is traction control, but what is the other?
Also, when these lights come on the car will go go over 55 mph. If I stop and shut the car off, the lights and problem are gone on re-start.
Anybody know what might be going on?
Thanks

Welcome to this big family, prescottcharger

First of all, owner's manual. Official Dodge site has the manual for you to download.
http://www.dodge.com/en/owners/manua...eplate=Charger

Choose your year and model, the link provided should already be '06 and Charger but better double check it.
Are the signs in the attachment similar to yours?
Manual says the Electronic Throttle (thunderbolt thingy) lights up should go to dealer asap.

You can wait for some more experienced members chime in as you read the manual.

Welcome to the forums. Just take it to the dealer. You probably aren't going to fix this one on your own and since getting towed to the dealer isn't as good as driving there and dropping it off sooner would probably be better than later. Good luck.

FYI...
Brought the car to the dealer, reason for the lights was a leaking intake gasket.
