Customer Question
I have a 2006...

I have a 2006 RV with ford motor. My electronic throttle control has come on. I am stuck in a Walmart parking lot. What can I do?

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you have brake lights? Have any trouble codes popped up?

No codes. I just filled up with gas and after about 200 feet the light came on and it will not pull the camper.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '06 Ford?

2006 E series

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

No and have only tried turning on and off. Is this something a mechanic can come to the vehicle without towing?

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

The check engine light came on after several tries to drive away.

greetings,

Can you check trouble codes? Without knowing codes I would start with cleaning the throttle body.

Using a rag and some throttle/carb cleaner you can remove carbon build up. Sometimes with the ford TAC system the throttle plate can stick and cause the system to go into limp/default mode

Remove the air inlet hose and push open the throttle plate. spray inside and wipe clean with a rag as best as possible.

If there is no sensor or wire harness fault this usually will get you going
