Hi there. Welcome to our site!

The lightning bolt lamp is a warning that your ETC (Electronic Throttle Control) is having a problem.

This can be as simple as a very dirty air filter or vacuum leak or as bad as a throttle body or computer issue. The first step in founding out what we're dealing with is to have the onboard computer scanned for codes. Once we know the code number(s) we'll have a better idea on how to help you solve this issue.

Best Regards.
