Dodge magnum rt electronic throttle control light flashing and loss of power.

dodge magnum rt electronic throttle control trouble.  The lightning bolt comes on and the car runs with little power.  It flashes on and off.  Is there some thing simple that I can do before I get ripped off at the dealer? Can I check for some thing loose, disconect the battery to reset, clean the throtle body etc....? It is Saturday night and I am broke and stuck.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  thanks, Alan

I have the same problem.Frown

Same thing happend on my 2005 chrysler 300c. Im Lost I dont want to take it to the dealer but at this point it might be the only option.  I have taken the throttle body off and cleaned it. unhooked the battery for several hours. checked all the wiring, Even replaced plugs when it finally threw the engine light on from the rough idle.

My 05 maggie's throttle died on Monday morning. ETC light and BAS light came on. It was the third time this happened only this time the reset tricks did not bring the throttle back to life. My mechanic replaced the throttle body and flashed morning. So far so good.
