2013 Chrysler 300C - Red Lightning Bolt on Dashboard/Power Failure

What does the red lightin’ bolt showing on the dash mean? It appeared and all power died. Battery won’t stay charged after recently replacing it and the alternator (last June under recall). We had the car towed to the Dealer, but the repair shop is still puzzled on how to fix it.

Google the term “totally integrated power module” (TIPM).

The lightning bolt symbol indicates an electronic throttle body system failure, there should be faults stored in the PCM.
