Could be just a battery issue. When was the last time it was changed out for a new one? if it was 5 years or more, I would change that first. Also, make sure the connections are tight and corrosion free.

Its the throttle body..same thing happened to my 2009 dodge avenger...bought a obd2 scan tool for car plugged it in got the code replaced the throttle body car works fine


Can you imagine the stupidity of putting a special dash warning light on a car just to alert you to a problem with the Electronic Throttle Control? Well, Chrysler did..... Yes, Chryslers are that stupid..... Fix it. Sell it. Get something worth buying.
