(ETC) Throttle Control---is the motor, in the Throttle Body,the TPS Sensor,is a replaceable item in it also.

The entire throttle body, is some very serious money,so don't assume it is bad.

Clean the Throttle with CRC Throttle Body Cleaner
Clean the MAF Sensor with CRC MAF Cleaner
Check for vacuum leaks
Make sure you got NO Ignition misfires.they can spike the computer and come back on the TPS, and then give you the ETC issues. (Very Technical stuff) Don't throw parts at it.

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.

2003 durango with indicator light on that is a lightning bolt. what is the cause?

This light means there is a problem with the electronic throttle control system. See the dealer for diagnosis and testing. This requires special skills and factory repair manuals to diagnose, it is not an at home repair.

2006 Chrysler 300C starts but then dies out?

Can you describe the light? Based on the symptoms, one possibility is the Electronic Throttle Control light - a lightning bolt with a curved line on either side. This indicates that the electronic throttle control is not working properly, and will require service to repair the problem. Recommend you do not try to drive, as you will have no control over the throttle/engine speed.

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.
