The lightning bolt on the dash means that there is a problem with the electronic throttle control system, but not necessarily the ETC itself. Get a code reader and scan the engine for any logged codes. The light may be on for a glitch and the electronic throttle control system just needs to be reset. To reset the electronic throttle control system, perform the following: •Insert ignition key and turn to "ON" position but do not start the engine •Wait for all the warning lights to go out. The check engine light may remain on. •Slowly depress the accelerator pedal all the way to the floor. •Slowly release the accelerator pedal until it is all the way back up at the rest position. •Turn the ignition key to "OFF" position. •Start the engine and see if the engine will throttle up. If not, repeat procedure. You would need to repeat this procedure any time the battery is disconnected. If there are any codes in the computer they may relate to the throttle position sensor, which could cause the lightning bolt to continue to appear.
