Default Stalling and blinking D4

When driving to work on cruise control I happened to look at the tach and it was at 2700. At that moment it immediately went to 0 which caused the cruise to disengage. Then the tach and speedo both started gyrating wildly. Mechanically everything seemed solid and I made it the final 3 miles to work and also drove 2 miles to lunch. The engine never died. I noticed the D4 light stayed on even after I put the car in park however.

When I left work an hour ago I thought I'd roll the dice and take the freeway. After about 6 miles the D4 light started blinking and the tach and speedo started acting squirrelly again. At this point the motor died and I had to coast to a stop on the shoulder. I tried starting the engine but it wouldn't turn over. After a couple of minutes I tried again and the motor turned over and I merged back into traffic. It quit again shortly and I coasted to a stop. After a couple minutes the motor turned over again and again I merged onto the freeway at 60+ mph. I exited and white knuckled my way home with no additional stalls although the engine seemed sluggish at a stoplight or two. Any ideas?
