SOURCE: electronic throttle control, cruise control

You need to have the codes read. The electronic throttle relies on an APP sensor and a TPS sensor. A problem with either one of these will cause this. Also, the cruise would be affected by this, as there is no cruise servo, it's controlled be the electronic throttle body.

SOURCE: Electronic Throttle Control light

I took my 2004 Dodge Ram 1500 5.7L Hemi to a mechanic that works from a garage at his home, recommended by a friend of mine. He removed and cleaned the throttle body and sensor(s?), then reinstalled them, and then disconnected both battery cables and held them together for 2 minutes so that the engine controller could reboot with the factory default settings, then reconnected them. I had bought a can of throttle body cleaner on my way over to his house for about $3.00. He charged me $40.00 for the job. This was done mid-February, about 10 weeks and 2500 miles ago. So far, the problem Has Not happened again, the truck has been running great!

SOURCE: electronic throttle control light comes

Take it to one of the bigger autoparts stores, they will usually scan for free, and determine what trouble code is actually present to verify problem area. The accelerator pedal position sensor is operated by a cable from pedal to APPS, then electronically from there to determine throttle plate positioning. The APPS is located under battery tray, but you can get to it over left front tire. Wait until trouble code is confirmed to determine repair.

SOURCE: The electronic throttle control light is flashing in my 2004 1500 5.7 Hemi truck, won't accelerate but does turn on, where should i start?

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.

My 2003 tahoe lost all lights on the dash and started running rough.


Check fuses in the box under the hood. Especially check any fuse marked PCM. Has anyone been working on the truck? Something may be shorted out, causing a fuse to burn.

I have a 2004 dodge durango and the lighting volt stable is on my dash


It has to do with the Electronic Throttle Control. ( as per the owners manual)

12. Electronic Throttle Control (ETC) Light 5.7L
Engines Only
This light informs you of a problem with the
Electronic Throttle Control system. If a problem
is detected the light will come on while the
engine is running. If the light remains lit with
the engine running your vehicle will usually be drivable,
however, see your dealer for service as soon as possible.
If the light is flashing when the engine is running,
immediate service is required and you may experience
reduced performance, an elevated/rough idle or engine
stall and your vehicle may require towing. The light will
come on when the ignition is first turned on and remain
on briefly as a bulb check. If the light does not come on
during starting, have the system checked by an authorized
dealer.

VSC and ABS lights come on while driving , vehicle starts running rough with a little jerking feel


Toyota has had problems with their throttle systems, I have never seen an accidental, unwanted acceleration, but I have seen pedal and throttle position sensor codes several times with theses systems. You need to scan the car for codes, as there are several hundred. The VCS and ETS are all part of the same system, that being the power train control. Take it to a Auto zone for a quick scan or you can buy cheap scanner online that will give you just the codes to Google the problem. Since you have an ETS light which is a malfunction with the electronic throttle control, then you will get a check engine and a VSC light as well as they are all dependent on a properly working electronic throttle system. Good Luck :)

The electronic throttle control indicator light is flashing while my engine is running. I am experiencing power loss, an elevated/rough idle and increased brake pedal effort. what should I do to corre


First, you didn't tell us what type of vehicle this is. However, my wife's car recently had the same symptoms. Replace the throttle-position sensor. By any chance, is this an Acura TL?

If the car's computer gets bad information from the TPS, the care will go into "limp mode", which allows for less fuel to the engine. It also disables anti-lock breaking and stability control systems.

reduced power , electronic throttle control problem . Reduced Engine Power Mode
When the ECM detects a condition with the TAC system, the ECM may enter a reduced engine power mode. Reduced engine power may cause one or more of the following conditions:
• Acceleration limiting--The ECM will continue to use the accelerator pedal for throttle control; however, the vehicle acceleration is limited.
• Limited throttle mode--The ECM will continue to use the accelerator pedal for throttle control; however, the maximum throttle opening is limited.
• Throttle default mode--The ECM will turn off the throttle actuator motor and the throttle will return to the spring loaded default position.
• Forced idle mode--The ECM will perform the following actions:
- Limit engine speed to idle by positioning the throttle position, or by controlling the fuel and spark if the throttle is turned off.
- Ignore the accelerator pedal input.
• Engine shutdown mode--The ECM will disable fuel and de-energize the throttle actuator.

Ba xr8 boss 260 running rough help please.


Hello
The engine and transmission in this cars drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM (Power Train Control Module). Whenever a problem like this occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL THE DIAGNOSIS & TESTING IS COMPLETED.

2006 Chrysler 300C starts but then dies out?


Can you describe the light? Based on the symptoms, one possibility is the Electronic Throttle Control light - a lightning bolt with a curved line on either side. This indicates that the electronic throttle control is not working properly, and will require service to repair the problem. Recommend you do not try to drive, as you will have no control over the throttle/engine speed.

My truck seams real sluggish and seams to lose a lot of power when the air is on plus it has a rough idle just wondering if there is any thing i could try to help , its a 1999 chevy silverado with 199000...


Idle Air control valve. these tend to go bad due to a lot of carbon build up on the pintle seat. This unit is attached to the throttle body behind the throttle plate. Your basically gonna wanna clean that throttle body body out with some throttle body cleaner, soft brush like an old tooth brush, and a rag or two.
