Replace the throttle body and the truck idles high and lighting bolt is flashing


That is not a lighting bolt it is and automatic throttle control failure light. Have the system scanned, there will be a fault code or codes in memory.

What does it mean when the warning light comes on that looks like a lightning bolt between two lines


That light is the Electronic Throttle Control Light or ETC Light. When this light is on it is warning you that there is a potential concern with the throttle control. It is best to get the vehicle to an Authorized Dealer at your earliest convenience. However if the light is on and flashing you may experience a racing/rough idle or engine stalling and your vehicle may require a tow. In this case get your vehicle to an Authorized Dealer right away.

Red lightning bolt light


I would say it is the warning light for the electronic throttle control which you had cleaned.
The description should be in your owners manual.

Sebring 2007 problems with the Electronic Thottle Control (ETC) Light flashes at dash panel car doesn't accelerates and goes to 20mph.


Had the same problem. Would be driving down the road and the red lightning bolt light would go on. Unable to accelerate and car started jerking. Would have to pull over and turn car off then turn back on to buy some more time. Needed to replace the Throttle Position Sensor, but you can't get that part by itself. You have to replace the Throttle Body.

Check engine light


The lightning bolt light indicates you have an issue with your electronic throttle control system.

This should be repaired ASAP so you don't end up with a run away engine, or one that does on you when you need to get going quick.

2004 dodge ram 1500 5.7 hemi 4x4 4 door 90k miles


Take throttle body off, clean Throttle Body with Carburator cleaner. I had same problem and its the ethynol in fuel that creates a build up in the throttle body which creates this problem. I did what a friend of mine said to do (service manager at Dodge Dealership) it hasnt happened again.
