I know they are in Manitoba, just don't know where for sure. Been almost 50 years since I lived there. Was born and raised there.

I have the same issue. Service ETTC, but only when the truck warms up or under braking.
Ok, long story short. I had a Diesel "Specialist" do a delete because of problems with the EGR. FIrst, he sent my ECM for reprogramming. He told me it was GDE tuned. Come to find out, GDE hasn't been performing tunes since months before mine had been done. I know it was tuned, just not by GDE because of contacting GDE and asking if my VIN had gone through their system. Now, I have found this forum. The diesel "Specialist" did nothing else and my '17 Ecodiesel is now going into limp mode when warm or under braking. I had it diagnosed by several other places, replacing components that did not fix the problem. Now I am pointing to the tune, because it only started after the ECM reprogramming. The EGR was not removed, but the tune was supposed to disable the EGR. The truck has had the exhaust installed to delete the DPF. I desperately need a repair tune done, this bench tuning is driving me crazy. Any recommendations? It runs properly(with GREAT power) before heated up and on the freeway with very little deceleration or braking.
Your diesel specialist is an idiot and sold you a cheap tune. Im sure he used a certain tuner that I wont name but either way you should demand a refund and get a proper tune from somewhere else. Or demand they tell you who actually made the tune and get support from them.

Thank you both for your input. It is greatly appreciated. I have never dealt with the person before, and would not have if I had not had an issue with the EGR. I was between a rock and a hard place.

I have a issue with my 2016 Eco-diesel. I lost acceleration at points in my driving and then got a message " Service Electronic Throttle Control " I have 113000 km on my vehicle so warranty is up by 13000 km. Dealership said it was going to be a $4800.00 fix. Contacted Dodge to see if they could do anything of coarse the answer was "NO". Even though the soot must have been building up before the light came on. I would like to know how many people this has happened to. This should be a recall cause it is a safety concern if your vehicle fails to accelerate in an intersection this could become a deadly situation.

If you have gotten the "Service Electronic Throttle Control" or are starting to lose power while driving please comment

I joined this forum just to reply to your issue. My truck is currently at my dealer for repair for the second time for this issue. No word so far. I agree the hesitation when you need acceleration is extremely dangerous.
Never have posted any of my issues on my 2018 truck, but I plan to request my service record and post it soon. I recently asked Ram if they could help me since I obviously have a problem truck. I have had numerous sensor issues since the engine had to be replaced at 10,000 miles. Ram told me they will not help and sent me the arbitration number. I am at my dealer so often they know me by name at the truck center.
