electronic throotle control light
I have a 2004 dodge ram 1500 w/ the hemi . I have a problem but only on long trips.After driving a long time the etc (electronic throttle control) light comes on and performance is terrible. I then must pull over disconnect the battery cables to reset the computer , and then it is fine. this only happens when we go on vacation. related to multiple hours of continuous driving. never happens driving locally. Is it the tps(throttle positioning sensor), or is something else causing the senor to turn the dash light on.had it hooked to a scope today, but there are no faulty readings, tech said its probably because i reset the computer. Please help, thanks ,Tim
p.s. has done this the last 3 years of trips. but i dont want to push my luck and have it go totally out
