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...

Your Mechanic has several available technicians that can assist you with an electrical problems inspection.
