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.

I have a 2005 Ford Crown Victoria the wrench light came on and the car slows down. Can you tell me what should be. Thank you


Torque Based Electronic Throttle Control (ETC) -It should be noted that the ETC system includes a warning indicator (wrench light) on the instrument cluster that illuminates when a fault is detected. Faults are accompanied by DTCs and may also illuminate the malfunction indicator lamp (MIL).
The Generation II (Gen II) torque based electronic throttle control (ETC) is a hardware and software strategy that delivers an engine output torque (via throttle angle) based on driver demand (pedal position). It uses an electronic throttle body, the PCM, and an accelerator pedal assembly to control the throttle opening and engine torque. The ETC system replaces the standard cable operated accelerator pedal, idle air control (IAC) valve, 3-wire throttle position sensor (TPS), and mechanical throttle body.
You should take it to the dealer or an ASE certified repair shop

While starting vehicle ETC warning display vehicle not throttle


This is a warning that something needs to be checked. This happens a lot when a vehicle is jumped with a dead battery. You may have to take to dealer and have ETC reprogramed.
Throttle Control Warning Light More and more vehicles are doing away with the mechanical throttle cable between the driver's foot and the engine throttle body, replacing it with a "drive-by-wire" system. In this system, a throttle pedal sensor sends data to an electronic throttle control computer, which evaluates and relays the throttle request to a specialized electronic throttle motor on the engine throttle body.
The throttle motor opens or closes the actual throttle blade, which increases or decreases the power output of the engine. The throttle control warning light illuminates when a problem is detected in the electronic throttle system.

Reduced engine power


Have the vehicle checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes ! Do you know what electronic throttle control is ? The gas pedal assembly has electrical connector an sensors inside ,hooked to the PCM / ECM - engine computer . The engine computer uses these position sensors inputs to control the DC motor on the throttle body to open the throttle plate to control the speed . Plus there are position sensors inside the throttle body to input PCM/ECM to see if it's calculations are corect . Your best bet maybe to take it to a qualified repair shop .

Reduced Engine Power Mode
When the PCM detects a condition with the TAC system, the PCM may enter a reduced engine power mode. Reduced engine power may cause one or more of the following conditions:
• Acceleration limiting--The control module will continue to use the accelerator pedal for throttle control; however, the vehicle acceleration is limited.
• Limited throttle mode--The control module will continue to use the accelerator pedal for throttle control; however, the maximum throttle opening is limited.
• Throttle default mode--The control module will turn off the throttle actuator motor and the throttle will return to the spring loaded default position.
• Forced idle mode--The control module will perform the following actions:
- Limit engine speed to idle by positioning throttle position, or by controlling fuel and spark if throttle is turned off.
- Ignore accelerator pedal input.
• Engine shutdown mode--The control module will disable fuel and de-energize the throttle actuator.

2004 hyundai santa fe parked it last night, went to use it today and it doesn't accelerate, engine runs fine, no warning lights on dashboard lit, can put it in gear and move it, but absolutely no...


The 04 Santa Fe came with three different engines. 4 cylinder (2.4 lit), and two different V6's (2.7 lit & 3.5 lit). The 2.4 & 2.7 use throttle cables connected directly to the throttle plate, but the 3.5 uses ETS (Electronic Throttle System) which uses two sensors (APS & TPS) and a control module (ETSCM). APS=Accelerator Position Sensor, TPS=Throttle Position Sensor, ETSCM= Electronic Throttle System Control Module. There are different diagnostic procedures for each system.
Go to www.hmaservice.com and register your vehicle by VIN #.. you'll then have access to wiring diagrams, shop manuals, service bulletins, campaigns, illustrations and procedures, etc.
