Customer Question
Occasionally when I'm at...

Occasionally when I'm at a dead stop and press the accelerator nothing happens and the battery light comes on. I turn the car off and back on and it runs fine. Accelerator pedal with sensor have been replaced. Still doing it. Any clue!

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you tested the battery? Have you tried testing the alternator?

Yes, both are fine

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Saturn?

2007 ion

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Ion yourself? What have you tried so far?

I've replaced the gas pedal with throttle position sensor

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No, that's it

Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!

you may have a sticky throttle plate, I would suggest a through cleaning with some aggressive carb cleaner and a toothbrush, you dont want to see any black carbon at all when your done cleaning

Please let me know if you have any further questions.
Now that I have posted a partial or complete answer, you will see you can rate me. The deposit you have already paid is not transferred to me until you rate me. I would like to receive nothing less than 5 star excellent ratings. So if we are not there yet, please reply and let me help more. If you're not pleased, let me know because rating bad does not result in a refund, there are better options. Rating now will not close this post nor prevent replying. Thanks Shawn.
