Electronic Throttle Control Warning Light

Hey guys maybe someone can help me out ... i have a 2010 3.7 wk grand Cherokee .... sometimes while driving usually when the engine is not fully warmed up and i drive it hard i get a total loss of engine power and the Electronic Throttle Control Warning Light comes on and blinks after a second or two i get some power back maybe about half of what it usually is and the light keeps blinking ... it goes away if i turn the car off and back on .... any ideas on what may be causing this?

Might need to have the throttle body replaced. It is drive by wire
