Q: Throttle light came on

asked by on

The throttle light came on.

Hello, if the throttle light just came on briefly and then went off, that would be normal operation. When the throttle light comes on briefly and goes off, it’s letting you know that it is reducing power because it has detected a traction issue but went off once it was resolved, and is considered normal operation. If the throttle light came on and the Check Engine Light is on now, there is a fault present and it should be looked at. You may need the aid of mechanic to connect a scanner to the vehicle to check for codes and monitor data in order to have a proper diagnosis.
