2004 Dodge Ram pops code P2175. Whats wrong?

2004 RAM 1500 5.7L pops code P2175. Truck sputters and dies while driving along in traffic. Pull over and restart and truck runs fine. This happens every coulpe of weeks. Only thing is code P2175 now flashing in my check engine light constantly. Any ideas as to what in the throttle actuator control system is triggering this? Thank you.

I had same problem on mine. The wire harness under the throttle body cover rubbed and was cut in two. If you remove the cover and unplug the etc you can feed the harness under the plug wires to inspect them.very common problem on this vehicle.

SOURCE: 2003 dodge ram hemi throttle control problem

try getting some throttle body cleaner from you parts store, and give your throttle body a good cleaning. I just did that my self, after taking off the air filter unit off and the "HEMI" box (sorry i don't know what that's called) you will have good access to your throttle body. With the engine off, prop open the throttle body with a wedge, and you will see it black. When you spray the cleaner it will desovle right away, if not a soft brush maybe a old toothbrush and srcub. Also spray the air box, tube, and "HEMI" box. When you start it again it will run a little wierd but let it run for a couple minutes, turn it off then restart. Should be good as new.

You have a problem with the ETC throttle body motor. Have a buddy with the key on engine off press the gas pedal. Observe the trottle plate for erratic movement. iif so replace the throttle body. U will have to learn the new trottle body once you replace it. If you need more help visit it has all kind of stuff for mopar applications. hope this helps.

91 Dodge ram 50 ignition problem, rough idle in drive,dies when braking

my ram 50 starts just like any other vehicle, (no light switch pulling whatso ever), it sounds like somebody haas rewired something wrong or you have a loose connection and when you hit a large enough bump it cuts your power. Start it up and find a speed bump somewhere and drive over it enough to give your truck a jolt and see if it dies.
