Good afternoon 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.

I work part-time here on JustAnswer to help you and other repair their own vehicles, and I get credited by your ratings.. So before leaving the site make sure and leave me a rating. You can still reply to me as many times as needed, even after the rating.. I will need for you to be my hands and eyes since I'm not there, and to be honest with today's electronics a scantool may very well be needed to retrieve the codes or to monitor data to see what's going on...

Yes the 5.7 has a MAP sensor, but I see that you replaced the throttlebody and I'm not sure if you know but it needs to be programmed before it will work properly with a scantool.. Did you relearn the ETC with a scantool? If not you likely have quite a few codes which would indicate it hasn't been learned yet..

No I didn't , should the etc light still be flashing??
Expert:  -Brad- replied 1 year ago.

It will flash until it's programmed with a scantool... Once you do this then you should be in good shape..

If you need anymore assistance feel free to reply and don't forget the RATING before leaving the site!!

Have a great day,
