Engine Throttle Control Light ame on, Truck runs rough
 
Cleaned the throttle body today for the first time in the trucks life , cleaned it, reinstalled it plugged the electrical connector back into the throttle body and took it for a drive, the idle is all over the place bounces from 1500 to 2000 with very little throttle applied. The ETC light is flashing, anyone know what may be up, the manual I have doesnt say much other than take it to a dealer if the light is flashing, why would it be flashing? the only connection is hooked back up

Figured it out, when I went to attach the tube for my CAI back to the throttle the air temp sensor popped out, when it did it bent down a small amount, it looked fine but the plastic "guard" around the actual sensor broke off, I put it in anyways and thats when I took to for a short drive and it was barely driveable, took another vehicle to parts source bought that sensor and installed it carefully and the truck drives fine, the light is gone and the idle is normal.

Glad you got it figured out. That is what I was going to say check the sensor then make sure there is no debris in the movement on the throttle plate

Thanks fella, amazing how a temp sensor can make a vehicle run so rough when not working or installed properly, I can appreciate the work that went into designing an engine and the placement of things like temp sensors
