2016 200s 3.6 awd with 42000 miles. while driving bumper to bumper traffic throttle light came on. when traffic lightened up I tried to accelerate and vehicle went into limp mode. released accelerator then car began preforming normally. Found at that time that oil temp gauge was not working. After restart throttle light off and temp gauge back to normal. Anybody have this happen and if yes what fixed it.Thanks

There will be stored dtc's (diagnostic trouble codes) that can help determine what may have caused the throttle light and possibly the limp mode. You will need a scanner that reads stored codes as most only read pending and active. Many auto parts stores do not typically pull stored codes. A good repair shop should be able to pull but they may charge a fee.

Welcome to the forum. Any fault codes stored in memory?
Codes should stay stored for 40 engine starts or so after the warnings turn off.
Both items happening at the same time may be related.
Check wiring harness & grounds (G909A)?

  • P0198-ENGINE OIL TEMPERATURE SENSOR CIRCUIT HIGH

There a 3 code types, pending (not yet meeting the criteria to be active), active, and stored (previously active but no longer occurring). Most scanners will report on pending and active; very few will report on stored. When you note 'no codes' you are likely noting no active codes. It is the stored code(s) that will help to understand what lit the throttle lamp.

stored code was P1D83 and U1504

That helps.
U1504 is the nonsense steering angle sensor data code. It is an erroneous code that was addressed in TSB # 18-009-17. It is a software update. Get all the other modules that have a pending update done at the same time, if the dealer cooperates.

The P1D83 is an implausible EOT signal received. Bad grounds (opens) & wire harness 'rub-throughs' (shorts) are the common causes.
