I am also going to do my best to direct you with the fastest, easiest and most common things to check first to make this as simple as possibly for both of us. I just ask that you provide me with the all of the correct information up front and with the most accurate tests results/information as possible as we move on so that I can point you in the right direction. I would also appreciate a positive rating from you in return for sharing my time and knowledge and expeirence with you in a timely mannner.

If the traction control light and ABS lights are on, this means there are codes in the computer.

Those codes are in the computer, there is no code for the no acceleration issue
Expert:  AMEDEE replied 1 year ago.

Thats because the check engine light is not on

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
no check engine light and no reduced power light, 5 days in the shop and the cannot figure out what's wrong
Expert:  AMEDEE replied 1 year ago.

I understand. May I please get the codes causing those other lights to come on?
