    Default Lightning bolt light and limp mode

    Hi,

    A few weeks ago the lightning bolt light started coming on in out 2012 200. The car would hesitate from time to time but otherwise drive fine. Then last week the check engine light and lightning bolt light came on again and the car went into limp mode and wouldn't go any higher than idle. A buddy came over to check the codes and from what we gathered, we felt it was the throttle body. I ordered a new throttle body and installed it without a problem. The car started right up and ran great around the block. Later that night my wife took the car to the store and the check engine light came on but otherwise drove fine. This morning after dropping her daughter off at school, the lightning bolt came on and the car went back into limp mode. Does anyone have any experience with this? Is there something else I need to check / replace? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you

    Most auto part stores will connect a code reader to your car and tell you what the codes are for free.
