Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!
There are many things that will cause the ETC light to come on or flash. Whatever the cause, the PCM is seeing an issue that will prevent it from controlling RPM's correctly.
Remaining possible causes include vacuum leaks or an intake restriction, the MAP sensor, throttle body, wiring, and the accelerator pedal position sensor.
The first step in diagnosing the problem will be to read fault codes from the PCM. Once codes are read then most likely electrical testing will need to be done to determine what is wrong.
