 Description of the problemMy trucks 'service electronic throttle control' light (lightning bolt) comes on both when starting my vehicle and when driving my vehicle. When it comes on when i try to start the truck, it wont change out of the gear it is in (ie i cant go faster than 15-18mph). It sometimes goes off if i turn the engine on and off multiple times. The more dangerous timing of it is when the light comes on while i¿m driving. This either causes me to downshift into a lower gear which throws me forward and revs the engine in excess of 3000rpm, or while i am stopped, the rpms climb without any foot on the accelerator. If i take my foot off the brake while this happens, i accelerate forward either up to 18mph or 30mph depending which gear it is ¿stuck¿ in. I have taken it to one local ram dealer 6 times reporting the same issue. The did flash updates, replaced accelerator pedal sensor, brake sensor, repaired connector for the accelerator pedal sensor, and replaced throttle body (all of which at the time, they said each individual component was the root of the problem). I have taken it to another local ram dealer, and they attempted to fix it with 4 and a half hours of diagnostic time. They replaced the throttle body and replaced a cable/connector and low and behold, the problem still exists. This is very dangerous for so, so many reasons. I note that not only the check engine light have come on, but the traction control light, abs light, service 4wd light, ! Temp light, check brake light, and of course the service electronic throttle control light.
