Asked by Jul 13, 2015 at 08:45 AM about the 2008 Chrysler Town & Country Touring

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Light has been coming on for better part of three years.  Sometimes car will not start
or starts rough and then will only go at idle speed (like 11 mph).  Have to turn car off
and restart - sometimes with the remote starter to get it to start correctly.  Sometimes
that won't work.  We have taken it in numerous times.  Two weeks ago, they replaced
the throttle body - but yesterday - same thing happened.  Light came on, car
shuddered, limped home for 5 miles.  Today, started fine(still idling rough) and got it to
the service station.  We're frustrated!  Need this car to last!

Check the ( ETCS ) Electronic Throttle Control System. This is a fuse that is located in the fuse box under the hood.
