I’ve looked through the forums about Service Electronic Throttle Control but haven’t really seen what is being done to resolve these issues, can anyone shed some light on what the dealers are doing to fix the problem and if they are recurring?
I’ve had my JLUR ecoDiesel for less than 24 hours and it is in the shop for this throttle problem.

From the ecidieselram forum:

The reason that comes on is something in the pcm is detecting a condition that can lead to an immediate failure that may leave the vehicle stranded in an intersection or other dangerous condition, it can be from almost anything on the truck, most likely its a loose connector anywhere on the vehicle, there are quite a few complaints about it on our ecodiesels. , one quick question though, are you even slightly touching the brake pedal while your touching the gas pedal? major no-no on our trucks, that message will come up if your touching both pedals at the same time, keep it up and the truck will completely disable the throttle all together for 30 seconds, then shut the truck off.

Since the engine has been in the Ram for awhile the dealer has a set of procedures to follow to determine cause and fix. Let them do their job.

No, one foot at a time, one pedal at a time.
It may not have even been anything that you’ve done.

I am not privy to what specifically FCA Jeep has cooking behind the scenes to address the diesel engine issues that they’ve been having but I do know that their engineers are aware of the problems and are working on a resolution.

As long as there is confidence in the resolution to the problem, I’m willing to let them take their time.

Most times issues are resolved, sometimes not. Thirty five years ago had a stumbling problem when accelerating my new Z28. Back then there weren't codes to track down issues. Factory even sent out an engineer but couldn't solve it. They gave me a new vehicle.
