electronic throttle control light in cold weather

5

Asked by Jan 11, 2010 at 06:38 PM about the 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 SLT Quad Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 05' w/ 5.7 auto.  When I first start it up in the morning and the temp is around 35 or lower the electronic throttle control light flashs and is in limp mode if you drive it. Once it warms up I can shut it off and recrank it and the light goes out and runs fine. I live in Fl. so it doesn't happen to often but is annoying when it does. Any suggestions ?
Thanks, Randy

anything electrical prefer fall temps, but they dont like winter temps. you may haveto let it run for a few minutes before you drive it.
