    Have not seen that yet, but will add it to the list that supports my anxiety attacks every I start the car. Keep us posted as to what's wrong

    Probably a faulty Gas pedal, GMs are known for that issue

    Take a look at your throttle body, make sure the wires are connected. If you have been doing any burnouts recently the computer can turn that light on because it thinks the throttle is stuck or it'll go into limp mode to stop you from blowing anything up. My 08 challenger did that once, my 08 charger srt did that twice. Haven't had it happen in the hellcat yet, but i havent done a massive burnout in it yet

    In the owners manual and the SRT tag that come with the car that they hang from the rear view mirror it reads out that if you do a brake torque for to long the car will go into limp mode and the dealer with need to fix it. But that being said, If you do like a 2 second brake torque that's more the enough for a really good show, and if you still want more Z performance sells a line lock for around 200-300 dollars, plugs into your OBD II port and turns off the back brakes....

    I read on here somewhere that you can recalibrate the throttle pedal yourself. Do a search and give it a try. Let us know how you get on
