Hi there. The first thing we would need to do is determine what the root cause of the light coming on. It could be any part of the throttle circuit; wiring harness, loose connection, failing throttle motor, failing throttle sensors, ECM, etc... Guessing can become very expensive very quickly and we wouldn’t want that to happen. I suggest having a qualified technician perform an inspection to avoid replacing unnecessary parts. Your Mechanic has several available technicians that can assist you with an electrical problems inspection.
