Default Loss of Acceleration And CEL Came On?

So I was just at a Stop sign and went to accelerate and it hesitated on me and at the same time the check engine light came on. The there was a 2-3 second lag with the gas pedal and then barely any "go". I stopped and restarted the car and it went away. I am going to see my mechanic tomorrow but was wondering if anybody has an idea of what this could be?

CEL, no clue.
Slow acceleration, check that your taillights are working. One of mine lost connection (ezconcept) and cause my max to go into safe mode. Don't remember a cel light on though. I figured it out cause the max worked great w/o lights on. Once I hit the parking lights or headlights she was sluggish.
Hope it's nothing major.

I think all max are linked somehow... I just had same deal was driving and bah car turned off all lights on. never has my car turned off on me... it hesitated starting and the most i can get out of acceleration was 40mph at 2.5-3K RPM hesitating made it to the dealer around my house (mind you i was trying to beat the snow storm, right!) internal code popped P0304 (Cam Sensor) Clear went away, Service tech decided to drive it on the lot nothing, took it around the block and did not see him for 10min (huh?) he came back and same problem came back (he went far off and well, not easy driving stuck on 5th) lmao... so deal is his gonna link it to the big computer (i assume the OBDII) to see if its a miscomm or truly the sensor... and yest bro it happen after i came to a stop on traffic.

Ya without the CEL code I'm just shooting into the dark here. But it sounds like it went into limp mode. And that always makes me think of the MAF sensor.

I had the same safe mode issues for a long time but never figured it out and it finally went away. So the first thing I did was turn off my lights but this time it didn't help. I'll see what the code is tomorrow and go from there. Thanks for the quick responses!

Possibly any clogs in the injectors or fuel pump? Do you use injector cleaners at all in your tank?

well everyones already chime in , but yeah without the SES code , where in the dark.


Limp mode / Safe mode can be a good thing and a bad thing at the same time.

Default Re: Loss of Acceleration And CEL Came On?

For some reason I noticed that in cold weather, the Cam sensor usually acts up but ur in SoCal. It happened to me without a code n I jus cleaned up the grounds, spark plugs n seafoam the car. Since the no problems. I got a CAN Comm code when it happened n looked into it found out that some how the TCM failed to communicate with the ECM causing it to go into limp mode.

Here's the codes it pulled:

It cold be something with the BCM or a steering switch-amabob (first code) and then something with the accelerator sensor. He cleared the codes and we'll see if it comes back, could have been a fluke.

Its related to the pedal itself. One of the sensors failed in the pedal most likely, but luckily there's 2, which would explain why it was fine after you restarted.
