My throttle light keeps coming on in my 2006 dodge charger.

Customer Question

My throttle light keeps coming on in my 2006 dodge charger. I do not know why. Please give me some advice.
JA: Just to clarify, what are the exact lights you're talking about?
Customer: That flashing throttle error indicator.
JA: Are you fixing your Charger yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Only hitting the ESP BUTTON. IT ON STARTED AFTER A MECHANIC PUT IN AS TRANSMISSION ABOUT 5 MONTHS AGO. I HAVE ONLY DRIVEN IT ABOUT 5 TIMES SINCE THEN, AND ONLY MAYBE ABOUT 15 MILES TOTAL.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: I was not having that problem before the mechanic touched my car.

Hi Im David, If at all possible, have the PCM scanned for codes. Once the codes are obtained, it would be much easier to decide which way to look for diagnosis.

Good morning and welcome to JustAnswer!!

My name is ***** ***** I have worked for a Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep dealership for 19 years and I will do my best to help.

Do you still need help?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
but I can not afford $23 again, just to get a suggestion from you, then take it to the dealership just my observation and then they will charge me $90 plus dollars
Expert:  -Brad- replied 5 months ago.

Thanks for the reply!!

The only way I can help you is if you can get me the codes that are stored in the PCM.. If you can't get the codes then there is no way I can help you get it fixed..

Talk soon,

Brad
