I was just driving home from work and all of a sudden the engine light came on and the car seems to not willing to rev over 2000 rpm. Restarted the car and the light is still there. Anyone came across this before? Fingers crossed....

Is there a way I can read the codes?

Give it a couple of key cycles (runs), the light may well go out and I wouldn't be concerned after that, otherwise if it stays on have a look at retrieving the fault code to see what's going on or take it to a good mechanic that knows about Chryslers, few and far between. Dealership would normally be my last option, sometimes there is no other choice, but seeing as it is probably still under warranty maybe you should start there.

Update:

The light suddenly went away after I took it to a car wash o_O

Well.... After reading up a bit on this issues it seems that it is really common and they tend to throw up a light and limp mode after driving in some slippery condition (was raining yesterday)...

Not sure if its a good sign or not tho...

Spinning the rear wheels is frowned upon by the 'nanny'!
