2008 Dodge Caliber Q&A
2008 Dodge Caliber Question: Electronic Throttle Control
I have an 08 Dodge Caliber 1.8L with a 5 speed manual transmission. The "Electronic Throttle Control" light came on yesterday. I brought it to the dealership this morning where I was told "the module is gummed up but ok, but you will want to get it serviced soon.. until then you are safe to drive it". NOT EVEN 6 HOURS LATER I was on my way home and the stupid car crapped out. No power for acceleration WHAT SO EVER!! The motor jumps and jiggles out of control and when I turned the car off it ran for an extra 3-5 seconds before sputtering off. I have seen a lot of other people having this same problem with this particular vehicle. WHAT IS GOING ON?? And why is Dodge not doing anything about it if so may people are having the same problem?? Shouldn't there be some sort of recall at least??? And how is this not covered under the "Lifetime Powertrain Warranty"? Please help! Is this something I can do in my driveway? I know where and what the part/module is just don't know what has to be done to fix it. - MeYow

I just changed the rear brakes on my 2007 caliber and now the Electronic Throttle Control light is on. What 's this about? thanks
recent problem ,electronic throttle control light staying on,car will not start
The Light just flashes sometimes but very annoying
My electronic throttle light came on and it would not go off. I cut the car off and turned it back on and it still would not go off. I drove my car home but the car would not accelerate over 10 mp...
