If you have the 5.7L engine then you have the electronic throttle control system on this. What has most likely happened is that either the sensors don't agree between where you would like the throttle to be at and where it actually is or the throttle isn't opening or closing the throttle plate properly. There are a few other things that can go wrong but whenever any type of problem like this happens the system will go into a default mode and won't allow the throttle to move other than to let the vehicle start and idle. You'll most likely have to go to the dealership or a good repair shop that can hook up to the system and figure out which component has failed. Hope this helps get you back on the road!

My 04 dodge 1500 with 5.7 hem I will start and die if you hold the pedal down it will hit and sometimes it will kick back through the intake


TPS...

Not something to do without scanning your OBD CODES.

If it still drives ...
Take it to the muffler shop & have them run your codes for you.

There are a couple of things that will get you into this trouble
and I'm thinking if you can get cleared by your friendly EXHAUST FOLKS you are into a couple of minor codes... Likely your TPS.

ELSE
a loose muffler baffle will do exactly the same trouble.

2006 dodge RAM 1500 with a hemi....I have a light with two vertical red lines and a lightning bolt between them...truck won't so anything...a few times it tried to start now nothing


I think this means your electronic throttle control (ETC) has a problem. The ETC takes the signal from your accelerator pedal to control the throttle plate in the throttle body. See this link:

Throttle body needs to be relearned. Need a oem level scan tool or equivalent. (Snap on versus modus) otc genisys or dealer tool. Once this is done the light will quit flashing and the truck will run correctly.

How to fix electronic throttle control on 2004 dodge ram 1500


You need the engine control system scanned to see what fault code is in memory for this problem once you have the fault code you do diagnostics to determine which part or parts are failing. I warn you don't guess all the parts (with few exceptions) in the electronic throttle control are very expensive.

Check, under the hood, all vacuum lines. Loose, cracked, melted. WIth the engine running, wiggle them around, and listen for a hiss.

Electronic Throttle Control light


I took my 2004 Dodge Ram 1500 5.7L Hemi to a mechanic that works from a garage at his home, recommended by a friend of mine. He removed and cleaned the throttle body and sensor(s?), then reinstalled them, and then disconnected both battery cables and held them together for 2 minutes so that the engine controller could reboot with the factory default settings, then reconnected them. I had bought a can of throttle body cleaner on my way over to his house for about $3.00. He charged me $40.00 for the job. This was done mid-February, about 10 weeks and 2500 miles ago. So far, the problem Has Not happened again, the truck has been running great!
