Default Electronic throttle control light

My electronic throttle control light has been on a few times....the lightning bolt in a plenum symbol on the dash. Seemed to be related to the alternator, a bad battery, and poor connection from alternator charging wire.

This time, driving along I got a chime and check engine light along with a blinking throttle light and a "hickup" at that moment.
Kept going fine, no power loss, and a restart cleared the throttle light.
Haven't checked the code yet. Research shows 106 is common.

Now, I know there's no "throttle" so I take it this refers to the apps...?
Unless its something to do with that valve dohickey on the egr circuit..? Which is unplugged for the delete.

Anybody delt with this?
New apps in my future??
