    so let's recap car start saying service electronic throttle response car would not respond while I was on the road had to pull over turn off turn back on

    Took car to dealer for the first time they said it needed a simple reset ok car worked for 2 days problem came back

    Took the car back to service for second time they said it needed a new throttle body took 2 weeks to come picked it up Thursday now today driving normally now the problem is back ..

    So not very happy I will take it back to the dealer Monday try to speak with service manager and see about getting a srt specialist to look at it

    Any suggestions on what other steps I should take

    Dang man, hopefully someone here can help you point the dealer to the correct issue. I thought for sure that replacing it last time would work

    Did you get all four codes at once?
    Or did one or two show first, followed by others?

    Might have a dirty MAF sensor, vacuum leak, or a faulty EVAP canister.

    I will tell the dealer to check for that ...they told me if they can't figure out what's wrong dodge would replace my car ... I hope that's not the case because I imagine the wait would be really long plus they don't make sublime any more

    Dealer gave me an update here is the email from them

    We are in contact with the SRT engineers and am waiting for instructions on a path to get your car repaired. I will let you know of the progress as I get it.

    Kind Regards,

    Then they called me and said they will have an update some time next week ....so pretty much there telling me they have no idea what's causing my car to do this problem

    They may re flash the PCM or even replace it as a starting point.

    P2135-THROTTLE POSITION SENSOR 1/2 CORRELATION
    P0222-THROTTLE POSITION SENSOR 2 CIRCUIT LOW
    P2444- not a valid code


    IMO, the best way to diagnose this concern would be to install an event data recorder. this would allow the tech to monitor sensor values before, during and after the event. this would help determine which circuit is causing the issue in order to concentrate diagnostic efforts.
