You didn't say if it was diesel or gas. I never heard of or saw a "throttle light" & I'm a Chrysler master tech. Engine light,yes. Will need much more info to solve. Like engine size,diesel or gas,auto or manual trans,etc. VIN would be helpfull.

    The first one is a knock sensor & the second is low airflow. Truck is running lean due to a bad massairflow sensor or dirty throttle body. also replace the airfilter.

Battery light flashing

The battery light on, is an indication of alternator failure. If your battery is more than 3 years old it needs replacement . A bad battery can damage a new alternator (full field condition). The age of your truck warrants inspection of the charging system. It requires at Least 20 amps output, from the alternator to run the engine.

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.

Nissan Sentra GA15DE engine - misfiring at random during drive

I have a 1995 Nissan Pulsar and had the same problem with the engine just as you explained, with the white smoke and backfiring, the problem was the pcv valve had failed and the oil was being sucked from it through the vacuum pipe attached to it. the oil would go into the inlet manifold and go into the combustion chamber. I had practically changed everything around the engine block before finding the problem. And also, the MIL light never came on.

Best Of Luck.
