Customer Question
My electronic throttle control...

My electronic throttle control light came on while I was driving but goes away after parking and turning off for a minute then comes back on after 10 minuets of actual driving. It doesn’t come on if it is just sitting

Mechanic's Assistant: Just to clarify, what are the exact lights you're talking about?

The red Electronic Throttle Control Light

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '10 Chrysler?

It is a 2008 lx 2.7l

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your LX yourself? What have you tried so far?

I ran a computer and nothing came back

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
No, and this is why I’m so confused. I ran a computer test and no codes can back which also doesn’t make much sense
Chrysler Mechanic: Gunvir Singh,

These vehicles are notorious for fault with throttle body. Before that need to make sure the throttle plate is clean. If good perform a throttle body relearn and check throttle body and acceleration pedal position correlation with a compatible scan tool. If everything is good, then possibilya faulty throttle body.

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
