ITS THE ELECTRONIC THROTTLE ACTUATOR,THE ARE 4 THROTTLE POSITION SENSORS ON IT. IT WORKS IN CORRELATION WITH THE PEDAL POSITION SENSOR ON YOUR ACCELERATOR PEDAL. IF THERE IS A DISCREPENCY BETWEEN THE TWO SIGNALS ITS DISPLAYS THAT MSG. IM CURRENTLY FIXING BROKEN WIRES IN A WIRING HARNESS ON A 2005 NAVIGATOR WITH THE SAME ISSUE.TAKE IT TO A GOOD SHOP TO BE DIAGNOSED.THOMAS IS A TARD WHO KNOWS NOTHING ABOUT AUTOMOTIVE

We have been experiencing same faults on a 2005 Expedition,with engine stopping and the message "Check electronic throttle". Ifirst went to AutoZone and they read the codes. They suggested replacing thethrottle sensor, which we did, but car stopped again. We had to replace thebattery in a month and this is the fix. The battery was almost 6 years old andwhen you first start your engine, it sucks too much load and gives these faultsto the computer. It never stopped since then (3 mo already). Sometimes we useto get the message 3 times a day.
The ETC is located inline with the air intake hose. Take the air intake hose off, then take the ETC off. Go to advanced auto or autozone and get carb cleaner or throttle body cleaner. Give the ETC a good bath and put it back on that should fix the problem and save you $600 or more in repair. This is a typical problem with the ETC when you start to get high miles. Hope this helps it help me.
