Question about 2004 Dodge Ram 1500
My 2003 Dodge Ram 5.7L Hemi has been experiencing problems with the Electronic Throttle Control or ETC. Error codes displayed are 2106 and 2108. The vehicle loses power at accelerator. The transmission acts like it is in neutral but there is no increase in RPM. This happens suddenly while driving at any speed. Usually after using 4-WD. The computer has been flashed before and the problem subsided for almost a year each time. Can you help?
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

I own a Dodge Charger 2008 3.5l, 6cy , it stalled while driving. I took it to a Dodge dealer who REFLASH the Powertrain Control Module(PCM) . He said if it happen again he will have to replace the PCM. Luckily for me I had purchase a LIfetime warranty on 9/11/2012 which will cover the cost with a deductible of $150.00. Hope this help you.
