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.

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.

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.

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.

Mine shutters in drive at a stop and the etc light comes on and it shuts off, it could be the gas pedal I haven’t changed mine yet but a good source tells me this and if the lights flashing and it’s running in limp mode I just changed the air charge sensor and the map sensor and it’s running good but it’s still shutting off so I’m gonna do the gas pedal tomorrow and I’ll see what happens


Did you find the problem my 09 dodge charger is doing the same throttle changed gas pedal changed also

This is not an answer is a question. I have a 3.5... My car had the lighting bolt. Turn the car off. . started 2 hours later.. As I was driving the whole car shut off I thought my battery or alternator was bad. Both checked out finecar turns over but seems like IRS drain all power n won't star.. Could it be my throttle.. Or is It electrical. Never had a problem .. Im about to change my started because as I tried to turn it over my cable got hot n smoked. Pls help some one

mine did the same thing. as I was driving the lightning bolt and abs lights both came on. I'd have to pull over and turn the car all the way off to reset the indicator lights. I found out that it was a torn 2-inch blue rubber seal leading into my ignition chamber. it's actually a very common problem in this magnum model and it's usually a little tiny fix but it does cost close to $350 to have seals and gaskets removed and replaced. It now passed smog and no more lights come on.
