Re: Electronic Throttle Control (ETC) .. let's discuss

The stealership must have a bad crack habit they need to fund to be charging those prices! You could have purchased a nice 85mm Arrington TB for 499.

As for the Electronic Throttle Control....I say it's crap! I am not to fond of suggesting to the engine that I would like to go fast and then having it decide what it wants to do or not do.

It's a shame we can't convert to cable and override that system. I know it's possible, but is it feasible and probably not

Some of the guys with Rams that have swapped a 5.7 into their 4.7 trucks have been utilizing their 4.7 PCM/harness with a Mopar Performance cable driven throttle body made for the Hemi.

I am wondering if there is provisions within the 5.7 harness to splice in the sensors that a 4.7 would normally use, and swap in a 4.7 PCM?

FWIW, I too am against ETC.

Re: Electronic Throttle Control (ETC) .. let's discuss

UPDATE: Picked the Jeep up today, started right up-just like old times. $435 lighter and heavy one new Throttle Body. Drove about 5 miles and stopped off to pay my auto insurance. Came out of the office and no start. Same condition and MIL's as before. Back on a wrecker and back to the stealership. I knew this was gonna be BAD.............

Omar, it won't work on the cable-driven vehicles. You have nothing to gain.

Re: Electronic Throttle Control (ETC) .. let's discuss

Hello All,

I Just wanted to state I am not trying to hijack the thread. Since I was having the ETC light come on it might be relevant to Electronic Control problems. If its an issue I will make this my last update on my ETC issue. As stated earlier, after picking up the Jeep at the stealship, it broke down about 5 miles with the same issue. Another tow to the stealer and they called today. Its seems now it needs a PCM. $725.00. on top or the $424 for the throttle body they still claim I needed. They still are complaining I didnt get the $484 plugs.

Re: Electronic Throttle Control (ETC) .. let's discuss

Hey guys my Jeep just got out from the dealer yesterday because of this problem. It is solve and i was happy, for 3 months they had bin looking for the issue and they finally found it. The things they replaced are kinda pricy (new gas pedal), (accelerator), ( Electronic throttle control sensor), and last but most expensive one is they changed the computer system that is located on the right buttom hood of the fron car where those four slots located. Now i could finally breath!!!
