Tonight I was driving down the road and couldnt remember if I had closed my spare tire holder (tail gate) so I barley pushed the brakes so the third brake light would light the bed( the bed light also cuts on the inside light therefor making it impossible to see out)..anyway I was still on the gas and it caused the rpm's to rise about 300 rpm then drop back down. Wonder why????

Engaging the brakes at all on the auto Dodges makes the torque converter unlock, thus the jump in RPM
