Customer Question
I have a 2005 Dodge...
I have a 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 and the electronic throttle control light came on in the truck is running poorly. I replaced the electronic throttle control body which helped slightly. But the truck is still will not accelerate and is running at a high idle speed. Do you have any suggestions about what to do next? The electronic throttle control light is still on.

Hello, there is also a reflash to help take care of this concern. The Powertrain control module will need to be reprogrammed with the replaced throttle body to stop having this issue. You will need to see the dealer to have the update performed.

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.
