DTC P2100 / Nothing else

I am getting the P2100 code from the Jeep (key on and off multiple times method). I did some research but little seems to specifically apply. I checked wire connections and everything was good except the slave boot on the second from front slave spark plug on driver side. The code is given after a failed attempt to start. Turns over but doesn't fire. Then it usually takes 4-5 attempts before it will start.

All was great for almost a week after correcting that and clearing the code. Now it is back to not starting. It takes 4-5 attempts to start. (Attempt start, notice it is not starting, key off, breath, try again...)

Mind you, it direct not so that all the time. There doesn't seem to be a ryme or reason.

I never get any lights or other codes either.

Please help.

2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 5.7 L Hemi, ~149k miles.

P2100 is ELECTRONIC THROTTLE CONTROL MOTOR CIRCUIT
Your first diagnostic should be to get your battery load tested to ensure it isn't having a problem.
Your second diagnostic is to check for any signs of a foreign material (ice or dirt) on the Throttle Plate or in the bore causing the Throttle Plate to stick ... make sure everything with this system is connected properly, and all tubes are tight.
Your third diagnostic is going to be a much more involved inspection of the wiring, connectors, and function of two circuits: K124 and K126. Your motor, PCM, or wiring could be bad.


If you find the first two are OK and want to tackle more, let me know.

From the FSM:
When the PCM detects an internal error or a short between the ETC Motor- and ETC Motor + circuits in the
ETC Motor Driver. One trip fault. ETC light is flashing.

NOTE: When this DTC is Active the engine speed, torque, and vehicle speed are limited to a Limp in mode.
NOTE: If the P2100 is intermittent, it is possible that the controller is overheating in extreme hot temperatures,
and this is considered a normal protection operation. No repair is necessary.
NOTE: Low battery voltage can also cause excessive current draw, in very hot and very cold ambient temperatures.
Make sure the battery can pass a load test before continuing.

Look closely at the temperatures at which this DTC set.

Possible Causes
THROTTLE PLATE / BORE INSPECTION
(K124) ETC POSITIVE CIRCUIT SHORTED TO BATTERY VOLTAGE
(K126) ETC NEGATIVE CIRCUIT SHORTED TO BATTERY VOLTAGE
(K124) ETC POSITIVE CIRCUIT SHORTED TO THE (K126) ETC NEGATIVE CIRCUIT
(K124) ETC POSITIVE CIRCUIT OPEN
(K124) ETC POSITIVE CIRCUIT SHORTED TO GROUND
(K126) ETC NEGATIVE CIRCUIT OPEN
(K126) ETC NEGATIVE CIRCUIT SHORTED TO GROUND
LOW BATTERY VOLTAGE
