My 2008 dodge avenger while driving loses power and electronic throttle control system light comes on and flashes


Alternator failing (way to check start car disconnect positive to battery if car dies its alternator)
or battery no longer holding charge
Check all vehicle filters replace if nessary
Throttle position sensors will give a bucking sensation if they go bad and rpm's would erratic or stale at either high or low end of spectrum
Bad fuel could cause these symptoms
A cold car not properly warmed can also cause the symtems above
These things are things to look at why your car doing what its doing

My throttle body light comes on and my car stall


Are you sure its not the check engine light ?
If it is, you would have the computer scanned for trouble codes to find out what the problem is.

When I push my foot on the accelerator the car does not go faster and the throttle control system light on the dashboard remains lit. How can I fix this problem


what type of vehicle is it whats the year and engine size 2008 Dodge Avenger?It's a common Dodge and Chrysler problem, it needs a flash update. This may be the correct one for your vehicle. 18-031-07 TSByour car is a 2008, it should still be under warranty, take it to the dodge dealer.The throttle light is called a mil light, which means it is in a limp home mode. Are your RPM's fluctuating? There are two throttle position sensors one on either side of the throttle body, one is a relay to the second generation OBD II system, the other one is redundant. You will need to have it scannedthis is what it means its storeing a fault code to whats wrong haveing code pulled will tell what the problem is dealer always charges twice the price of a regular garage charges auto parts store has something called a ob2 they can pull the trouble code for free once you find out the code its throwing then you will no what the problem is then you can go from there good luck tell me if this helps happy holidays

2008 Dodge Avenger SE oil pressure light?


Don't worry about the oil pressure light, they key was on, the engine was running and suddenly stalled, the system saw it as low oil pressure on a running engine situation and warned U, it is not the cause of the stall, the stall is most likely related to the following.

Here is the most common cause of surges and stalls and low idle, it is the idle speed control air-bypass valve and throttle valve, they get full of gunk over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.
