are you talking about that light that is on if you dont put the clutch in and try to start the car?

Well, at least you car was still driveable with the light on. I've had it come one twice on my car. Both times while I was driving, and both times I lost almost all throttle control. Only way I coudl get the car to move was pushing the gas pedal all the way down. Shut the car off for a few seconds and started it again and it reset itself. Dealer couldn't find anything wrong, and no stored codes.

Thanks HSKR for your respond ,do you have any idea why is it doing that ,because in the tsb is stated that its due to a poor start(dumbing clutch) and i am shure i was driving the same like always ,i would never dumb the clutch

Well, I have the CVT. Not sure why it did it to me. Both times I was slowing down on an off ramp. Not even touching the throttle. And when I went to hit the gas pedal again to maintain a slower speed, the light came on and it started bucking.

Re: Electronic Throttle control Indicator Light stays on after Start????

Just for thought are you using a higher grade fuel like 92 octane? I've experienced something very similiar when I used 92 octane by mistake (my other car needs 92). Since then been using 87 octane and no problems.
