HELP - Check Gauges and Electric Throttle Control light...
Need help in understanding 2 indicator lights that are coming on.
1) "Check Gauges" message
It appears where the odometer is. It mostly comes on when I press the brakes, and even moreso when it's rainy out. It's not constant.
2) "Electronic Throttle Control" which is the wrench indicator light
After driving 1000 miles with issue #1 happening less frequently than not, today I got the open-end wrench indicator light on the dash that stays on without the message outlined in #1. I checked the manual and this idicator says it's the Electronic Throttle Control.
A guy who works on the truck for me says issues #1 is being caused by a bad front brake sensor and that issue #2 requires replacing some module or part of which reads all these sensor messages.
Note: just had it at the dealer who did 7 flash updates. Rough/cold start went away and ran bullet-proof #1 started on Thur in the rain and today #2 happened.
