Another Electronic Throttle Control (ETC) Problem

With just 1200 miles on the new truck, I started a steep grade and the truck would only go up at 16 miles per hour....After trying to lower gears, nothing helped...Got every red symbol, and "service electronic throttle control"....Ending towing vehicle back to my business a 100 miles later....Restarting the truck and it seemed to be OK....Will go to the dealer Monday.......Seems like these ETC modules are acting up with quite a few owners, each displaying different failures........Anyone with the problem have it solved by Service satisfactorily?????? or know what is going on????? I never owned a new Ford truck and had problems with such low mileage....Beginning to think the 2014 owners will be the guinea pigs for the Ecodiesel.......What do you guys think?????

I checked for recalls, and Ram stated no significant recalls.........

I too have the same message. ED truck is 3 months old. The check engine light as well as the Service Electronic Throttle Control lights are on and the truck will not go passed 2nd gear. Guess I am going to have to get it towed to the closest dealer. Hope this is a quick fix. I have read that it may be just a programming problem.
I too got the same problem. Check engine light....Electronic Throttle Control symbol lit up and it will not go past 2nd gear automatically or manually. Going to have to be towed to the shop. Hoping it is a quick programming fix.
