Lighting bolt indicates ... Electronic Throttle Control system issue , yes throttle body this vehicle control has a drive by wire system. Unless you have the test equipment a parts change is your answer.


I got a new throttle body and its still doing it.. Who got a magnum that did this and got it fix?? Im in michigan


Your Magnum needs to checked again with a real scan tool..Have all the codes read again write them down the clear them! I'm in Ann Arbor.... Means there's a problem in one of the two APPS(Accelerator Pedal Position Sensor) circuits, the reason the car ran fine is because the system is redundant. its reasons your CEL check engine light is / was on, if all the lights are out now, id expect the electronic throttle light to become a more and more prevalent problem.


Wats a apps? And did get it fix

It's The gas pedal - accelerator pedal look down and check it's bolted to the floor-firewall panel. The electronic sensor that sends a signal to the PCM computer for the drive by wire.

I have a 06 mag 3.5 high output its does the same thing it jumps as if it wants to turn off I just did it not 20 min ago I just turn around and go home I got it tested and always come back good never anything about the throttle body or anything else. This is my only problem I can't seem to find out what it ready is


HelpMePlease1000000 ------ 3.5 V6 Start with the the CPS (camshaft position Sensor). Have it tested or have to scanned with a real tool DBRIII scanner. If its failing symptoms are slow acceleration and jerking. (no more engine light and not violently jerking) common issue.


Whats a tbs mean?? That wat came up on my car


That's the throttle body sensor code TBS But its reading the circuit doesn't mean its the Problem 1 of 2 senors in the circuit!


Huh what. I change the throttle body and the ecm is good on the call too.. So what left

Mine was jerking at stop while in drive. Put in nuetral n it stops. The gasket was missing around the throttle body and it was gettin a vacuum leak. Gasket 10 bucks. Fixed it right up!
