Question about 2005 Dodge Magnum

Electronic Throttle Control Problem

I have a 2005 Dodge Magnum and just recently my "ETC" light came on (flashing) and also my "BAS" light (continously). When the lights are on, my car drives really rough and has a hard time accelerating. It came on once while I was getting on the highway and my car shook and drove really rough for the entire short time that I was on there and never went above 50mph. When I turn the car off and then turn it back on it drives ok for a little while but starts acting up again shortly after with lights flashing and everything. Whats the best advice for a 27yrs old female like myself to do?

The only advice for a car this new is you will need to get the codes to proceed. I'm assuming you would not know what the codes mean when you get them so the next advise would be to let them fix it. You really have no other choice.

How do you clean the electronic throttle control


have 2005 Dodge Magnum and the ETC light goes on and my car dies down when...

one 'trick' you should try: put the key in the "on" position, but don't start the car. Depress the gas pedal full to the floor, and then let go, all within 2 seconds. You should hear a "ding" sound indicating that the pedal travel distance has been reset in the PCM. Pedal position is electronically sensed at all engine conditions, and a misread can trigger the ETC code. You'll want to do this reset after you clean the throttle body, but try it first anyhow.

I have an 06 Dodge Magnum. ESP/BAS light


Whenever this warning or any other stays on in the dash it id indicating that the systems control module has detected a fault, it then disables the system as long as the light is on. You must now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and "scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the problem(s)

On my 2006 dodge magnum my ESP/bas light came on


The first thing to do is have the dealer check for trouble codes.
This is the warning light for the traction control system.
There is a long list of possible causes, so you need the codes first.

Bas light dodge magnum


Same thing happened to my 2005 dodge magnum. Took it to the shop, we thought it was a computer issue. Flashed the computer and it didn't help. It ended up being the thermostat and some other parts. The shop had to remove the whole front grille to replace a part that went straight through the top of the engine. The part is plastic and had cracked and was slowly spewing coolant all over the engine. The car was basically overheating but so little that it was not evident at first. Once they replaced all of that the lights stopped coming on. Very frustrating to say the least.

The Electronic Throttle Control light came on in my 2005 Dodge Magnum RT. What does this mean and a range of cost


This problem can sometimes occur due to dirt entering the throttle assembly. It can bring codes on relating to forced engine shutdown, which sounds dramatic at best. Normally a good cleaning of the throttle valve assembly cures this fault. It happens because the system fails to see throttle response or closure within parameters. This should be your first action to take, rather than spending money needlessly... Hope this helped?

Warning Light on the dash is illuminated all the time and it says, "BAS ESP"


This is the Brake Assistance/Electronic Stablilty malfunction light, it is the equivalent of an ABS (antilock brake) / electronic suspension control (traction control, rollover control, electronic suspension control) light. It basically means you have a problem in either your electronic ABS, traction control, or some other advanced electronic suspension control problem... Your car is fine to drive like it is, unless you detect some other driveability issue other than the dash light... (99.9% of the time it's something irrelevant and maybe stupid; that's what you get for driving electronic cars...) Your best bet to get rid of the light would be to get the car to an auto shop with a reader that can read ABS/EBS, brake and suspension codes to really find out why the light is on (usually a wheel speed sensor, or something like it...)
