Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.
Do all the electronics work in the vehicle like the radio,wipers,horn,lights,etc. and the only issue right now is the starter is not engaging to crank over the engine to start it?
Let me know so we can continue,thanks Pete
O.k.,this indicates a low voltage issue.This can be caused by a loose or corroded battery cable at the battery or leading to the battery or where the cables lead to from the battery.I would check the cables and connections for any issues needing repaired to resolve this issue here.I would also check the power input signals to the fuse panels for any loose or corroded connections.
If these are all o.k. if you only checked the voltage at your battery you want to have the battery tested (a local parts store will test it free of charge) as it may be low on amperage which indicates a faulty battery needing replaced.
All of these here will cause this fault here and this will need checked into further to pinpoint and repair this issue.

Low voltage can cause the slow acceleration fault as well as the gear shifting issues here.On the newer models that are computer,sensor and solenoid controlled voltage affects the operation of these components and can cause all of these issues here.
I would have this checked into further for any faults needing repaired.
