    Service Electronic Throttle Control

    I'm starting to get fed up with something on my truck. Every couple of weeks I get a Service Electronic Throttle Control message on EVIC and it goes in to limp mode. So far each time I've cleared the codes and it is fine for a couple weeks. This time, I'm going to get it to the dealer, but I'm sure they are just gonna clear the code and send me on my way as it won't pop right back up. Does anyone have any advice?

    So, you're getting a repeated CEL, you've done nothing to even speak with a dealer, but you're already certain they're not going to do anything AND you're frustrated because it keeps happening. Yep, definitely an is with FCA. Time to lemon law this truck.

    When you are driving and this happens, are you coming to a stop or setting at a light waiting for it to chance or driving in bumper to bumper traffic ?? If you are touching the throttle and brake at the same time that causes that warning to come up. It just takes a slight touch on them to confuse the computer and that is why you get that warning. I know as I have been there and done that both at a light and stop and go traffic and just driving in slow city traffic... It took me some time to train my left foot as I had a habit of touching the brake at times.

    I would explain to the service manager, in a kind but knowing manner, that if they clear the code, it will come back again, as it has several times before. They should have enough experience by now to know the root cause of the problem. Hopefully, you have a service department that actually cares enough to take care of the problem.

    I received a shock absorber recall for my truck. I was shocked (pun intended) to find out that the dealership that gave be the best buying experience ever doesn't give a hoot about my recall. I told them where to go and tried another dealer, who has bent over backwards to help me. So, finding a good service department is perhaps 50% of the battle.

    What are the p-codes? that info would be helpful for diagnosis.

    I just had this happen a month ago. Took it to dealer. They flashed the pcm? and replaced an o2 sensor and a temp sensor. Been good so far.

    GDE, glad you responded to this. The codes are P0299 and U1424. I currently have one of your ECMs on the way to me now, is it likely to correct this issue or should I still get it to the dealer?

    To answer a couple of other posts, I'm not fed up with FCA because I haven't even given them the opportunity to correct this. The issue is the limp mode condition, it has always occurred in the evening and I can't have it towed and be without a vehicle when a simple reset will have me on my way in about 5 minutes. I never drive with 2 feet, so I am not on the accelerator and brake at the same time. The fault has always occurred within a couple hundred feet of leaving a parking lot or driveway.

    P0299 is an underboost code, this is was it leading to the limp mode. U1424 is not on my list, but "U" relates to the CAN bus and communication between modules in the vehicle. How many miles on your truck? Hopefully the tune prevents further occurrences of the code, but it could be a slow response turbo or some other mechanical issue. Let us know if the code returns after running the GDE tune.
