Hello and thank you for your question,

Was your check engine light coming on and if so was there any fault codes setting?

Did the battery go dead at any point?

Your 2005 Crown Vic has an electronic throttle body (fly by wire) and if you lost the throttle then that means the PCM (computer) detected a system fault and that caused the check engine light to turn on. In order to determine the cause the first thing you are going to need to do it to have the computer system scanned to see what the fault code and or codes where that should have set when the light came on. Most auto part store such as Auto Zone will do this for you at not charge. If you can get this done and post back with the fault code I can address this for you with the proper repair.

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
