Customer Question

Customer: Name is ***** *****. I have a 2008 Dodge Caviler. The electronic throttle control light came on and the car shut itself off. Did this repeatedly 5-6 times. Has new battery installed 2 weeks ago-so that is ok. I have noticed in the last month that RPM jump from 2 to 3 1/2 most every time I drive lately.
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: Have never had any other problems with car until recently. That is all
JA: OK got it. Last thing — Dodge Mechanics generally expect a deposit of about $18 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied). Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.

if the throttle light is on or has come on there are codes in the engine computer, you WILL need a code reader to pull them however, has anyone pulled codes?
