My chevy equinox will slow down with no throttle control. Both engine lights come on and book says get to the nearest dealer. We live in a remote area of Alaska, no roads to mainland. Occasionally the engine will run just fine. The engine scanner says, "lost contact with throttle actuator control module". Been like this for over six months. Wife is not happy. The car will run with no throttle control. It takes off very slowly and slowly gains rpm/speed. Speed will increase to about 35mph on level ground. When you brake the rpm drops, let off the brake and rpm increases. No throttle pedal control. Drove the car this past hour, made a slow uturn and the rpm dropped while in gear with no brake. I found earlier when that happens you can turn off the ignition, wait too the count of ten and the car will start/run normally.(Sometimes). I can go start the car now and it may or may not start normally. The car has run at reduced rpm for months with occasional normal operation. I could sure use some advice. Regg in Alaska
