Complaint - Power Train

I WAS DRIVING IN TRAFFIC AT APPROXIMATELY 45 MPH WHEN MY TRUCK SUDDENLY SURGED AS IF I HAD HIT SOMETHING AND A FAINT SQUEAL OF THE REAR TIRES. THEN AS SUDDEN AT IT HAPPENED THE TRUCK BEGAN TO ROLL SMOOTHLY AGAIN. A WRENCH APPEARED ON THE DASH SCREEN WITH A STATEMENT THAT SAID "MAINTENANCE REQUIRED". THE AIRBAG INDICATION ILLUMINATED. ONCE THE WRENCH SYMBOL AND "MAINTENANCE REQUIRED" STATEMENT DISAPPEARED THE REGULAR SCREEN CAME BACK THAT SHOWED THE MILEAGE AND THE AMOUNT OF MILES UNTIL EMPTY, EXCEPT THE NUMBERS WERE ALL DASHES. ALSO THE SPEEDOMETER WAS SHOWING THAT I WAS GOING 0 MPH WHEN I WAS CLEARLY MOVING AROUND 45 MPH. I TRIED TO ACCELERATE AND THE VEHICLE WOULD NOT ACCELERATE NO MATTER HOW MUCH THROTTLE I GAVE IT. I NOTICED THE TRUCK WAS STUCK IN 5TH GEAR. I TRIED TO MANUALLY SHIFT THE GEARS AND WHEN I PRESSED THE + AND - BUTTONS ON THE GEAR SHIFTER THE NUMBER "5" ON THE DASH WOULD FLASH AND NOT CHANGE GEARS. I COULD NOT SEEM TO GET THE TRUCK OVER 2300 RPM. I TOOK A PHOTO OF THE DISPLAY SHOWING THE DASHES AND 0 MPH.
