Expert:  tims auto repair replied 1 year ago.

hi

sorry i missed you..

from the way you explain and from the codes you are getting,it would seem your problem is the etc[electronic throttle control].

try this,try cleaning the inside of the throttle body,if that dont fix your problem you may need to replace the throttle body..i will upload some tests/checks you can do,

thanks
