SOURCE: REVERSING PROBLEM

doest it idle lumpy, when driving forward, do the revs stay below normal when ideling, if so, the reverse gear may be damaged and have not sufficient power in revs to make this gear work, check with your mechanic, it wont cost anything for them to check it.

Does it turn over? If not, try disconnecting the battery and reconnecting it. This has worked for my Jeep before.

SOURCE: Check electronic throttle control

We have been experiencing same faults on a 2005 Expedition,with engine stopping and the message "Check electronic throttle". Ifirst went to AutoZone and they read the codes. They suggested replacing thethrottle sensor, which we did, but car stopped again. We had to replace thebattery in a month and this is the fix. The battery was almost 6 years old andwhen you first start your engine, it sucks too much load and gives these faultsto the computer. It never stopped since then (3 mo already). Sometimes we useto get the message 3 times a day.

Hello and welcome to FixYa....Sounds like you have a direct short in the NSS, (neutral safey switch) RLS (reverse light switch)--- if it's fuse # 11 that you are blowing, then it's the safety switch.
It's located on the transmission, passengers side, about half of the way up. It is a fan shaped switch with a big nut at the bottom, it is adjustable.
It has slider type contacts in it that slide and click into position to complete a circuit when the gear selector is moved. Depending on type of tranny, the switch serves as 2 purposes, neutral switch & backup lights. It's probably full of gunk. I have removed them, taken them apart by removing the phillips head screws, cleaned with electric contact cleaner, coated with dielectric grease, reinstalled & and got another year and a half of service.
Here is what the switch looks like....I hope this helps, good luck with your Jeep.

05 expedition won't pull in drive have to keep giving gas and then it takes off even when u stop changed filter


Any warning lights lit on the instrument cluster ? Check engine light , yellow wrench symbol light . Redued engine power message ? Your vehicle has electronic throttle control ! The gas pedal is hooked electrically to the PCM - engine computer which controls a DC electric motor on the engine ,controlling the throttle plate . Has position sensors in the gas pedal and in the throttle body . They wear an cause these type problems . Suggest you take it to a qualified repair shop .

I had same problem with my 2005 Expedition. The solution for mine turned out to be a dirty throttle body. Cleaned the inside of it with rag and carb. cleaner so that the throttle plate wouldn't bind and no more problem.

You can try shifting into manual 1 to get moving then once you get going shift the lever up into Drive. This should work, then drive it to a shop to have your ****** looked at.

"wrench" light came on and accelerator stop working in traffic


crunk it up ,that's good english . Cranked it up How many miles on the vehicle ! The wrench light is a warning light for the transmission or the electronic throttle control .All new vehicle's have electronic throttle control , there are position sensor's in the APP an in the throttle body an they ware out . It's your responsibility to keep it maintained . Not just to jiffy lube !To the Dealer to have diagnostic's run on the electronics. Accelerator Pedal Position Sensor vs. Throttle Position Sensor

Inside Car Accelerator Pedal Position Sensor vs Throttle Position Sensor

Electronic Throttle control light came on and car died


We ended up taking the vehicle to a trusted auto repair shop. The codes came up indicating a failed throttle body, most likely in the electronics. After a few more pinpoint tests, the recommendation was to replace the throttle body. The cost for this repair was just under $500. Since there is no aftermarket on this part, Genuine Ford parts were used.
