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? I have a 2005 1500 Ram Hemi 5.7 Just got back from pulling my fishing boat. The truck sat over night. I got in to go out of state. The ETC light started flashing when I put my foot on the peddle. nothing happened. The truck just sat there in Idle. No acceleration at all. Whats with that ? never happened before. I keep the truck in top notch condtion. it has 126,ooo miles. Any remedies ?
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.
