Can throttle control/transmission be caused by a fuse

Is the Check Engine Light on for a throttle control or transmission concern? If there is a blown fuse which would otherwise send power to a controller, motor or switch inside these assemblies, then yes a blown fuse can cause problems. I'm not sure exactly what concerns you have for your vehicle, but there may need to be a little more research done. Consider hiring an experienced technician like one from YourMechanic to take a look at the vehicle and offer a personal diagnosis.
