SOURCE: 2005 Dodge Magnum error code...

Your heated O2 sensor has a heeater problem most likely. Most likely time to change out your HO2 sensor. Most cars actually have only primary heated. Not sure for this application but would thus assume the primary sensor or otherwise known as precat O2.
With a sensor high you have high voltage back to the pcm thus most likely shorted heating element.

There is an outside chance of a cross short to the ground circuit of your O2 sensor. If after replacing your sensor you still have a problem then start looking for this.

I see you went to the auto parts store and got an HO2 sensor (Should be a 22mm or 7/8" -- same size) and replace the Primary and if that do not solve the problem, then see if you have a heated postcat HO2 if not then see above.

Good luck and hope this helps, oh and Bank 1 is where your #1 cylinder is.

SOURCE: my Electronic Throttle Control (ETC) Light

I have the same problem. 2004 ram Quad cab with 5.7 hemi. Dealer has replaced throttle position sensor twice, computer once and rebuilt wiring harness twice. Now they say I should trade it in because they don't know how to fix it. It only has 64,000 miles on it. Still under powertrain warranty. The only solution I see is to find a good NON CHRYSLER mechanic and never buy a Dodge again.

How do you clean the electronic throttle control

have 2005 Dodge Magnum and the ETC light goes on and my car dies down when...

one 'trick' you should try: put the key in the "on" position, but don't start the car. Depress the gas pedal full to the floor, and then let go, all within 2 seconds. You should hear a "ding" sound indicating that the pedal travel distance has been reset in the PCM. Pedal position is electronically sensed at all engine conditions, and a misread can trigger the ETC code. You'll want to do this reset after you clean the throttle body, but try it first anyhow.

2005 dodge magnium sxt abs ebs light is on and coding to a right rear speed sensor and it was just changed. didn't fix the problem

Broken wire...Usually happens around the sensor, but could be anywhere from the rear sensor to the abs module. Just a note. Most wire breaks are just behind the plug. Within 1/2 inch.. Of the sensors.

Does a bad battery affect the Electronic throttle control

Absolutely, bad batteries that will not take a full charge causes low battery voltage which can affect solenoid's, actuators, sensors and just about anything else including computer controlled operation. You'll need to replace the battery and sometimes in rare situations you made need to have the throttle control reset at the dealership. Hope this helps, and have an awesome day!

The electronic throttle control light is on in my dodge magnum and my car is stalled what do I do to fix it?

Your throttle pedal is electronic and not controled by cables anymore. So there is sensor that sense's what postion your throttle body needs to be opened or closed. The sensor probably needs to be replaced.

The whole pedal assembly will have to come out and be replaced as it is all one unit. They are easy to take out. I learned about these at the SRT Track Expereince when the Charger that I was driving stopped having so much go and the ETC light came on. They showed us how to replace them and told us that they have to replace them all the time and keep them in stock due to people mashing the pedal. It is all plastic and you don't have to mash these like the old system.

You can try resetting the ETC as well. Place your car in the run position without starting and depress the gas pedal and release all in 2 seconds (1 down and 1 up). You should hear a confirmation "ding" if done correctly and you have know reset the sensor to know when you have open throttle.

You are still safe to drive your vehicle but you need to get it fixed or you are not going to get good performance.

What size engine do you have?
Changing a timing belt is no small feat, and if you do not have the technical aptitude, I would not recommend doing it yourself. You could seriously mess up your engine.
