Mine does this every time i take a road trip when im using the cruise control for a few hours, which is about once or twice a month now. When it goes into limp mode i just pull over, turn it off for a minute, then go. The CEL light stays on for a day or so but then disappears. Funny how this is happening to 03's

Quickly turn it back to the off position.
Then do this a further 2 times, making three in all and leave it in the ignition on position on the third time.
It should take 2-3 seconds to do this correctly.
Then, on this third try, look at where the oddometer displays the mileage on your dashboard display.
You will find that the computer runs through some checks and any codes that have been thrown, will be displayed in the oddometer as P---- a 4 digit number.
Make a note of these codes and the prefix letter.
Do a search on this board for error codes and look them up.
This will tell you what system/part, is causing your check lights to come on.
That will narrow things down a bit.
Post your codes up on this board and the guys will give you a heads up, on what to either check/clean or replace.
This will work for 03 Hemis and others,as I do it on my 03 and it works 100%.
If you can't get the codes up in the oddometer display, your turning your key incorrectly.
Hope this helps and post up your codes.
Al.

My mother in-laws 2003 dodge ram gave these codes P2175 and P2106. The ETC light comes on with the check engine light (malfunction indicator light), when the ETC light comes on it doesn't shift right and it bogs down when she accelerates and acts like it cuts out then it will take off. If she shuts the truck off the ETC light goes out but the check engine stays on for a while. Please help if you can! Thanks ")

Default electronic throttle control

I have an 03 dodge ram 2500 hemi with the electronic throttle control problem. I am getting a code p0441 from the odometer when I turn the ignition on and off three times. Can you tell me what the code is for and what to do about it? It has gone into limp mode twice. I shut the truck off for a few minutes and it cleared and ran fine again. Happens on three hour trips or longer. Thanks

You can start with that link in the post right above yours and doing thread searches on the site for other members who have had the same issues. That way you can see what they did if any to resolve it

just joined because i googled this issue and this board came up. mine seems to be getting some crappy gas milege now. i had the same issue come up where it seemed like i left the trans on the ground a mile back. pulled over, off then on, and away i went. CEL went away 2 days later. i just dont want this to be an on going issue. where is this ETC located so i can clean it like stated above? I downloaded the manual but all i see in there is the wiring.

ohh and the dealer was no help either. the guy didnt even seem to care what the deal was and wanted me to spend like 100 bucks for him to even look at the issue....jerk

thanks people for any help. this seems like it should be a recall with all the issues.
