Answer: This light should not cause the engine to not crank over like a dead battery. But it can cause it to crank over but not start. This light informs you of a problem with the Electronic Throttle Control system. If a problem is detected the light will come on while the engine is running. Cycle the ignition key when the vehicle is completely stopped and the gear selector is in the PARK position.
The light should turn off. If the light remains lit with the engine running your vehicle will usually be driveable, however, see your dealer for service as soon as possible or go to Autozone and have them read the codes for you for free. If the light is flashing when the engine is running, immediate service is required and you may experience reduced performance, an elevated/rough idle or engine stall and your vehicle may require towing. The light will come on when the ignition is first turned on and remain on briefly as a bulb check.
