While driving at about 35 miles per hour, I lost speed down to about 15 miles per hour. I had to stop, turn off the engine and restart. The issue did not reoccur, but there have been a few more times when the acceleration has decreased and then just started again and I took off faster than I wanted to go.

After pulling into highway, accelerator ceased to work once speed hit 15 mph and etc warning light flashed. Pulled into parking lot, turned car off and back on, and same problem repeated. Research revealed numerous instances of the same problem all leading back to problems with the throttle body. Cleaned throttle body and problem went away until three miles down the road when it returned--this time accelerator worked until 30 mph.

The electronic throttle light came on and the car would not go over 15 miles per hour. I pulled over, turned the car off and it restarted. The light eventually went off and kept coming back on with the car not being able to accelerate over 15 mph. I took it to the Dodge dealership today and they stated that the throttle body needs to be replaced. The cost of the part alone is $257 which is on back order. There are over 1200 on back order at this time. They also checked to see if this part would be included in the 100,000 mile powertrain warranty which it is not. This is part of the powertrain and should be included in the warranty through Dodge. There should also be a recall on this part. Evidently there are more people with the same problem since there are 1200 on back order.
