    This electronic throttle control light is most likely due to a failed tps sensor located within the throttle body. Seing how theres no simple fix for this , the throttle body unit will ne to be replaced. I had the same problem happen to me and replaced the throttle body with a different one and the car immediatley came back to life with full strength.

I have an 08 Sebring and mine has been having the etc light come on and the car will stall..with little to no notice. It's at the dealer right now and they can't figure out what is causing this because the light doesn't stay on once you turn off the car and restart it. It's kind of relieving to me that someone else is having this problem. Hopefully Chrysler can figure out what the deal is with this!!

I bought my 2007 Chrysler sebring back in october 2007 and have had it ever since. However, after the first year , I started having problem with the electronic throttle control light which will come on sometime and never go off unless you stop the car and restart. The electronic throttle control light always come on when I am in heavy highway traffic of when I am driving in the city . When electronic throttle control light is on you cannot break to stop the car, or speed up. It make you loose control of the whole car increasing the potentiality of accident if you was driving at any speed above 25 mph.Therefore when I drive I always make sure I am close to the curb. I went to Chrysler dealerships, but they do not know what is going on with the car or could cause that failure, `and have no idea how to fix it.I do not know if this problem is related to the power train. Many other owners of 2007 Chrysler sebring have had the same problem. This problem happened to me already more than 30 times, luckily I am a good driver, and with luck I was able to handle the car. i WENT TO PENNSYLVANIA this weekend and almost did not make it home. Also last night it happened to me twice at 12 am right at the exit of 295 while there was cars behind me and i almost got into an accidents

I have a 2008 Chrysler Sebring and this light comes on periodically, however by the time I get the car to the dealership it is off. Just recently the car briefly stalled. How can this be fixed.

I am also having this problem over the last few years. Last summer I had the shifting mechanism replaced and the problem went away till today. They thought it was the shifter not recognizing that the car was in park. I was also having some trouble getting the car into gear, like it was sticking or caught on something. Taking it into the dealership today and maybe they can figure it out.

I have an 07 Chrysler Sebring, was driving last and it died, lost power and only light coming on is a red lighting bolt with the red backwards brackets. What should I do?


Hello Bobby-Jo Hill,

Fix it... or get it fixed...
(as troubles go... not horrible (wear gloves)).

Looking at your owners manual ... ( Red symbol)
Item 19 appears on the attached PAGE 138...

Chrysler 2007 Sebring Sedan Instruction Manual Page 138

Defined as YOUR...
ELECTRONIC THROTTLE CONTROL INDICATOR.

If you take it to a DEALER... (I don't recommend)
it is likely their "mechanics" are twice as old as your
Like... "MAP" (Manifold Pressure SENSOR)...

Take it to a RECOMMENDED mechanic... See if there are complimentary READINGS available and get an ESTIMATE.

Your manual indicates the car should still be drivable...
(MEANING a TOW isn't YET required ...
(plan no long trips)).

Once the codes (diagnostic trouble) are written down...
You will have a real idea what you need...
(come back here & repost... certainly take pictures).

Just remember... replacing OXYGEN SENSORS make about as much sense as buying a new thermometer... if you have a FEVER.

Save the money... a collapsed muffler or catalytic converter
could ALSO cause very similar issues... code reading your
On-Board Diagnostic systems is the only really cost effective way to resolve your issue...

Go Click on the ROCKAUTO Link below...
Note a few of the prices... and pay close attention
to EXHAUST parts if you live in a C.A.R.B. compliant state
(like New York or California) purchasing the "WRONG" part
can be HIDEOUSLY expensive...

What I like MOST about ROCKAUTO...
THEY WARN YOU...
(3 engines possible, 2.4 (4 cylinder), 2.7 & 3.5L (V6))

Good luck

"MAP" (3.5L V6): selection...

Sebring 2007 problems with the Electronic Thottle Control (ETC) Light flashes at dash panel car doesn't accelerates and goes to 20mph.


Had the same problem. Would be driving down the road and the red lightning bolt light would go on. Unable to accelerate and car started jerking. Would have to pull over and turn car off then turn back on to buy some more time. Needed to replace the Throttle Position Sensor, but you can't get that part by itself. You have to replace the Throttle Body.

This morning i went to start up my sebring and it wouldnt start. the electronic throttle control light came on so i kept trying to start it but nothing happened . it was just fine the other day .can you...


I could be that the sensor could be dirty. They sell a spray at your local auto parts store specificly for the throttle body. It's should be connected to your air filter housing. Just try to clean the sensors and use the spray for the throttle body and that should help. Good Luck... It work for me...

What do i do when the electronic throttle control indicator light comes on


Drive for awhile after a drive cycle if no problems light will turn off itself. If it stays on you need to have it scanned to see if there is a problem. They have lots of glitches in it that cause light to go on but not really a problem.
