The 1st thing that MUST be done is to have the electronic engine control system computer (called the "PCM") scanned for fault codes, this gives you the starting point for diagnosis od why the warning/fault light is on. You can get the scan for fault codes done for free at any Autozone or similar discount auto parts store in your area. Aamco Transmission does the scan for free as well.

SOURCE: Electronic Throttle Control
Throttle actuator control system-forced limited power
• The PCM monitors the throttle actuator control current when the ignition switch is on. If the control current is less than 8 A or more than 11 A, the PCM determines that the throttle actuator control system is under forced limited power. Diagnostic support note
• This is a continuous monitor (CCM). • The MIL illuminates if the PCM detects the above malfunction condition in the first drive cycle. • PENDING CODE is available if the PCM detects the above malfunction condition. • FREEZE FRAME DATA is available. • The DTC is stored in the PCM memory. POSSIBLE CAUSE
• Throttle actuator malfunction • Connector or terminal malfunction • Open circuit in wiring harness between throttle body terminal A and PCM terminal 1B • Short to power supply in wiring harness between throttle body terminal A and PCM terminal 1B • Short to GND in wiring harness between throttle body terminal A and PCM terminal 1B • Open circuit in wiring harness between throttle body terminal B and PCM terminal 1C • Short to power supply in wiring harness between throttle body terminal B and PCM terminal 1C • Short to GND in wiring harness between throttle body terminal B and PCM terminal 1C • PCM malfunction
and for the other one
the dealers need to reflash the powertrain module ( ETC ) ...

I had this problem with my 2004 Ram with 5.7 Hemi. The check engine light would come on, it had a hesitation at a certain rpm range and would shut off on me from time to time. Took it to my mechanic and he said the electric throttle sensor wasn't reading correctly and my EGR valve was out. He fixed both problems, but then had to send the truck to the Dodge dealer to get the computer reflashed and the dealer is the only one that can do it. Cost about $500, but after that, no more problems. Better performance and fuel mileage.

I have had a similar problem on my Chevy truck, and like you have had the dealer replace a number of components with no luck. However I fixed mine myself. First check all of your grounds. That is your simplest solution. Second look at all components in the electronic throttle system not just those indicated by the trouble code. In my case I had the Accelerator Pedal Position Sensor (APPS), the throttle control module and harness in between replaced, yet the APPS DTC kept coming on when the engine was cold. I replaced the Throttle Body and the problem disappeared. Short explanation is that the Throttle Body was marginal (no DTC displayed) and when the engine was cold I was forced to floor the gas pedal which under normal conditions is never reached and which put the APPS at it's limit where it does not do very well. This set the APPS P1125 DTC. As the engine warmed up the APPS did it's job in the normal range and the car was fine.
I found the problem by using a computer based OBD II scanner and monitoring all of the fuel system values. My cost was $249 for the scanner and $99 for the Throttle Body. Compared to $900 for the dealer repairs without a solution. Hope this helps
