I cant see how the two are related. Your electic throttle body is controled by a sensor with your gas pedal that tells the throttle body how far to open. Were you able to scan for code.

Unfortunately no answer for you. We have that problem today. Fixed the front brakes of a 2012 Dodge Journey and the Electronic throttle light came on. It won't go more than 10-15 mph.
