2005 F150 5.4 FAIL SAFE MODE

HELP PLEASE:
When I was leaving work last night, went to start up the truck and had no throttle response and fail safe mode displayed on the dash.
Truck would not move at all. disconnected the battery and then turned on the headlights to drain residual power, reconnected battery. Still the same thing. I got the usual codes:
P2104 forced idle, P2106 forced limited power, P2111 TB stuck open

Truck is currently getting towed to the dealership and will get more info. from them later.
Anyone here have any ideas as to what happened to this truck just sitting? Fine one moment, dead the next! codes will not reset nor did the disconnect on the battery work.
HELP!!!!!!

Well after $600 at the dealership. It is now back on the road. I generally try to do my own repairs on my vehicles but in this situation, the truck is in another city than where I currently reside. So it was towed to the shop and repaired there.

Since there was no response to this post, the community seams not interested in what was the problem and possibly save someone else all the headache and lightening of the wallet that I just went through.

Really? You gave it less than a day to get a reply. Maybe people should make up answers just so you have something to read. Obviously you're not interested in helping others unless there's something in it for you first.

The post was up for less than 24 hours and your all butthurt? I try to look at most of the threads and if I do not have anything to offer, I say nothing. Hopefully it cost you a lot to fix and here's to you needing more repairs in the future...

I took off the 4 bolts on mine, cleaned it with gun solvent and put it back on. Problem solved. Course the other things a year later weren't so good....see my posts for the hell.
