The 'red lightning bolt' indicates a throttle body fault.

This can mean many things from the TB itself to just a wiring issue.

Do the 'key dance' and the car will tell you the codes.

i had it towed to the dealer yesterday. i will let you know what they say when i get it back but they said it might have to do with the TB or the PCM. if its that then they said it will be replaced for free.

"free" ? How's that?

Back in October of 2008, when my car was 3&1/2 years old (36 month bumper-to-bumper warranty) the lightning bolt was blamed on the 'throttle actuator' (more commonly known as the gas pedal) and cost me $401 to have it replaced (including the pedal height adjuster).

Good luck with 'free'. Let us know how 'free' it was.
