Yes it could happen if the battery was removed or if you have low voltage on the battery, see if you have 12 volts. it the battery is good try to remove fuse #11 and this may reset it. If the light comes on again you may has an issue wit the throttle body itself. You can clean it with a good throttle body cleaner to see if that solves the problem.

A battery is about a $100 and many autoparts stores will install it for free. If your battery is 3 or more years old it may be going bad. Do clean the terminals and battery connectors.
