Service electronic throttle control 2014 JGC

Hi Everyone

I've been getting an occasional "Service Electronic Throttle Control" message on my 2014 JGC Overland w/8.4AN

I have recently applied all the recalls at my dealer and I'm running the current software on the 8.4AN system (13.58.2 or something like that)

Has anyone else seen this, or is this a bug or a real issue?

Thanks!
Randy

Are you a left foot braker?

Re: Service electronic throttle control 2014 JGC

I'd take it to the dealer. I've read a few instances where individuals reported hesitation and receiving that message and they all turned out to be left foot brakers who were essentially on the brake and the gas at the same time (if even for a moment). Once they stopped left foot braking the issue went away.

Re: Service electronic throttle control 2014 JGC

Mine has done it twice in 6K miles.

I believe the two foot driving might be correct.
I do drive two foot sometimes.

Re: Service electronic throttle control 2014 JGC

I drive all autos with 2 feet - braking with the left - and the Jeep is no exception. Having driven with a manual gearbox daily for the past 10 years, my left foot needs some action.

I have not seen this message being displayed. Then again, I probably have sufficient synchronization to not step on both pedals at the same time.

Re: Service electronic throttle control 2014 JGC

I really wish that Chrysler would supply all of us with a list of potential error messages that the EVIC can display. That way we could research all of them, so if and when they pop up, we can know in advance, how serious they are. This is beginning to remind me of Windows 95.

Instead of wishing why not look for it?
