Check the ( ETCS ). Electronic Throttle Control System ) fuse. Fuse should be located in the fuse box under the hood. Owners Manual would tell you exactly what fuse it is and location.

Thanks a lot will definitely will check. Could a bad spark plug cause this ?


There's not a fuse for that...don't see it in manual


Yes a fouled or missing spark plug can cause your problem.


When was last time you had a tune up ? And does your owners manual say anything about the wrench light what is causing it to come on ?


You may not have that fuse but take a look at the fuses some you can tell by just looking at it and see if it's blown.


Wrench light indicates throttle body problem


Tune up was in Dec


Check out this web site ( https://www.youtube.com/watch? v=Ew-IRLFBtr ) Going by what they are saying even you may have just put this part on but it is bad
