The first thing on ETC systems is to make shure that the throttle body is working freely and clean. Always make shure that the key is turned off and in your pocket so nobody can come along and turn it on while you are working on a ETC, the throttle plate will close when the key is turned on and will try to keep your finger. With the key off, take your finger and open the throttle plate and make shure it moves smothly and closes freely, if not replace. If working O.K. take some cleaner on a rag and wipe it out very well. It is not recomended to spary as the cleaner can wick into the electronics.

Cruise control quit working on my 2004 F150 4x4 lariat what could be problem

Could be a number of thing's wrong .Without hooking a factory scan tool and checking for DTC'S diagnostic trouble codes , viewing scan data i would only be guessing . Your vehicle speed control is computer controlled . switches are low voltage input to the PCM - engine computer , Vehicle also has electronic throttle control . Electronically controlled DC motor on the throttle plate is how the computer controls the gas going into the engine. Gas pedal has position sensors that tell the computer how much your pushing on the gas , sensors on the throttle body tell the PCM if it is opening the throttle enough . VERY COMPLEX !
YOUR best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop .

Possible electronic throttle control issue. TRy disconnecting battery and see if problem goes away. If it does go away and problem reoccurs in the future, the electronic throttle may be a problem

seems something wrong with the Electronic throttle control (ETC) which is an automobile technology that electronically "connects" the accelerator pedal to the throttle, replacing a mechanical linkage
There is no mechanical linkage between the accelerator pedal and the throttle valve with electronic throttle control. Instead, the position of the throttle valve (i.e., the amount of air in the engine) is fully controlled by the ETC software via the electric motor.
- you better have the ETC immediately serviced by an approved Toyota-shop

Electronic throttle control can't start jeep

Electronic throttle control (ETC) is an automobile technology which severs the mechanical link between the accelerator pedal and the throttle. A Throttle Position Sensor (TPS) is used to control traction control, fuel injections, etc.
