'11 Jeep Liberty, dropped to idle and fuel gauge dropped to E while on highway

Weirdest thing, my son was on cruise control doing 65 when all of a sudden the RPM went to idle and the fuel gauge dropped to E. He pulled over and eventually turned off the truck, restarted and everything was good again!

My first thought was a TPS sensor but that doesn't explain the fuel gauge dropping to E. The truck never stalled, and all of the accessories continued to work, and no warning lights.

Any suggestions?

I wouldn't even try to guess which sensor it was. If the check engine light isn't on, I guess you have to wait until it happens again.

A couple of times during the first year after I bought my 2010 jeep wrangler the radio and gauges quit for no reason. By the time I pulled off the road, turned off the engine and restarted it the symptoms were gone. The dealer said there was nothing they could do since they couldn't repeat the issue. Whatever it was, it hasn't happened since.

Engine Turned Off

Had this happen to a Buick Rendevous and it was a bad ECM.
