Question about 2008 Jeep Patriot
ETC light is on, and no throttle when gas pedal is pushed. throttle body is not the problem, tried another one off a known good car
On my Lincoln LS that is always bad cop ignition coils
On yours i don't know the system or have diagnostic manuals
or wiring diagrams
I can tell you the APP (gas pedals) don't fail & the TPS Sensor
would have to be completey gone to loose both sides
On mine the coils spike the pcm & then come back on tps
& thus loosing that signal & you go into ETC Failsafe

Did you have the same cranking with no start problem with original engine or did the problem begin when you changed it? I would check codes if you have not already, and would also clean business end of idle air valve (next to tps) DO NOT turn the end plunger while cleaning or it may not seat properly. Do not loose the rubber "o" ring while working either!

Check the ignition coil packs. It sounds like a spark problem.
