Hi, my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today. In some cases, I may need more info to assist better. I apologize for any delay.
I try to be here most weekdays and some weekends. If you respond and I do not respond back right away I will do so as soon as I can. My info is somewhat limited on your model here but no one else has responded and would like to see if I can help here since your question has been sitting for so long. If at any time you feel that I cannot help with this please let me know.

The wiring to the throttle needs to be checked to see if any wiring is found to be loose or damaged or corroded. I have seen where wiring to one of the throttle components will intermittently cause this fault here. I have also seen bent or damaged terminals in the connectors at or leading to one of the throttle components also cause this fault.

This has to be checked into further to help pinpoint which is the cause and then from there, it can be repaired to resolve this issue here.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service, your 5-star rating is appreciated ( should be a link to click on here or above). You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question. I work on delivering the best answer and help here but in some cases, it can be difficult to do without seeing the vehicle.

Thanks, Pete

Hi pete i have had all that checked and throttle remote changed about 3 wks ago

If all wiring was already checked and connections as well and no issues were found, the throttle system needs to be checked again and if an issue is seen with throttle signals or controls operating incorrectly when this acts up, this would lead me to believe this is an issue with the engine computer itself. It can fail or act up internally causing this issue here as well.

This does have to be checked again when it is acting up to see if the throttle signals are inaccurate or intermittently sending no signals as this would indicate an internal engine computer failure and the computer would need to be replaced.

Let me know if you need anything else and feel free to rate my help here or above ( should be a link to click on ) as this is how I receive credit for my time, this can be done at any time and you can still come back here and reply if needed. Your 5-star rating is appreciated

Thanks Pete
