My electronic control throttle light continues to come on. I have read forums of this being an issue in Dodge and Chrysler cars from 2000 to 2011 models. I think at this point there needs to be a recall on the defect on all these cars. I am sick to my stomach on the costs to fix this issue.

The dealer refuses to honor the recalls on the engine light and tire light on, and is claiming that it does not affect my vehicle. I just brought this car from them and now I getting no where with this people. I paid $95 dollars for nothing and the lights still on and they told me that the reason they wont refund my money back is because they have to paid the mechanic, I believe that sold me a lemon. My resolution is to fix this car and refund my money. Thanks.
