This could be caused by a few different components or sensors causing this. It could also be a problem with the electronic throttle system specifically the throttle body. We will need to have the vehicle scanned for the stored fau it codes using a compatible OBD II tool available at your local parts stores.If no codes are stored then we may need to scan the vehicle when the warning comes on or a more advanced tool is needed.We can also check the connections to the throttle sensor and motor to make sure all the connections are clean and secure.Let me know.
