    I had the same experience today with my 2002 Elantra. The engine lost power, it would not accelerate, and the "check engine" light came on. The whole thing was over in a couple of minutes. I intend to follow the advise of taking the car to Autozone for a computer check, and I will post the results.

I had same problem. The accelerator pedal is a module/component with no direct linkage to the engine - it is a "drive by wire" setup - the accelerator module is probably defective and needs to be replaced. I had mine replaced under warranty and the rpoblem was solved.

Only way to tell what is wrong is to have the computer scanned to read what code is stored in the Engine Control Module (ECM).
Any of the large parts stores, eg. Advance Auto, Autozone, Pep Boys, etc. should be able to scan it for free.

that is just a basic 10,000 km service
check engine light on
undo battery terminals count ten reconnect
clears the codes
if check engine light returns
the code will be stored in the ecu

description sounds like an 02 sensor

Check engine light code came up p2101 throttle actuator control moter ciruit range/performance whats this mean/ whats the fix thanks engine lost power dash said reduced engine power let it set for 20 min...

There is either a high or low circuit problem with the motor. The ecm, or called the computor, moniters the cuircuit for the motor.
The best thing to do is have the control motor checked and the ecm. One of them is bad.

Check engine light stays on.

You've made the correct decision. Let the dealership diagnose the issue. They'll tell you EXACTLY what the problem is and what's needed to fix it (parts, labor, tax, time-frame, etc.).

Check Engine light and ESC OFF light

I had an issue where the ABS and ESC lights would go on and wouldn't turn off unless I restarted the car (sometimes they would light up again even if I had restarted). This was because the speed sensor was broken on my back tire. After the dealership replaced it, (under the 36,000 mile warranty) all was good and I have yet to see the lights come back on.

Issue: ABS & ESC would not turn off
Solution: Replaced broken speed sensor on tire
