Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My husband and I got an 07 dodge 5.7 hemi 2500
HD 4x4. On our way home,  the check gauge light
came on,  oil pressure dropped,  so we pulled o we
cause it was loosing power,  he got out and
checked it,  went to start it again and wouldn't
start, after a cple times of doing that it was making
a noise, and still wouldn't start.  And some little
light ita red with lines above and below with like
lighten bolt in the center of it.  Looked it up,  it's
almost like a sensor.  It will start still.  Does
anyone know what it could be?

It means the throttle position sensor is a fault, but can also mean that the truck is in limp mode due to the problem you are having with the truck. The system is trying to protect the engine. Since the CEL is also on, that means there are codes stored, have the truck scanned, that might help determine the ultimate issue. Don't continue to start and drive it. Have it towed to your garage/mechanic for diagnostic work.
