Customer: the light will stay on, after about 3 to 4 cycles of turning the car off and starting it back up the light will go out untill the next time I get on the gas

Next time problem happens turn key on-off-on-off-on within 5 seconds and code should be displayed on odometer then let me know what it is. This vehicle has a electronic throttle and considering throttle response is lost it sounds like a problem related to throttle system. Let me know if you have more questions or when you are able to pull codes, thanks.
