Question about 2009 Dodge Caliber
Light on the dash that as two lines with a lightening bolt
Posted by Anonymous on
I have a 2009 Caliber. Lately as I excelarate, this light on the dash that has two lines and looks like lightening bolt comes on and causes the car to not excelarate as it should. The car drives
less than 2 miles an hour when this happens. Even if I push the paddle to the floor, it still rides
very slow. What does this light mean? Please advise.

I believe that is your electronic throttle control light, it causes your car to go into what is called "limp mode" where no matter how hard you accelerate or press the gas it maxes out your speed at 40 mph.
It just turned on for me as well, it could be an array of issues from a broken cable, or speed sensor, or even the throttle position sensor. I recommend taking it to a shop to see it. Also if you are getting any check engine lights which is the orange light that looks like an engine get a obd2 reader or go to any aamco or autozone to have the check engine light read to you for free.
