Posted by JustAnswer at customer's request) Hello. I would like to request the following Expert Service(s) from you: Live Phone Call. Let me know if you need more information, or send me the service offer(s) so we can proceed.
Expert:  Kenny Z. replied 1 year ago.

Ok thanks. Most common for this concern is the electronic throttle body. To confirm you would need to get the codes read from the powertrain control module. Usually it will store a P2111 or P2112. Either of these codes present will indicate throttle body replacement is necessary. It might be covered under warranty depending on current mileage and state of registration. If you can provide the VIN# ***** what state the vehicle is registered in I can run it through the Ford database.

Thank you. For now I just would like to know if it safe driving for a while
Expert:  Kenny Z. replied 1 year ago.

Ok, It is safe, but it could possibly worsen and get to point where you will see a stop safely now message and the vehicle could go into forced idle limp mode. This will allow you to get off the road but will take away all throttle response. Sometimes cycling the key will temporarily correct the issue until it acts up again.

Also without the codes I am not positive this is the fault, just by far the most common. So there is a possibility a different component is causing the issue. Generally most faults that cause wrench light will at least let you get off the road safely.
