Reduced engine power


Have the vehicle checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes ! Do you know what electronic throttle control is ? The gas pedal assembly has electrical connector an sensors inside ,hooked to the PCM / ECM - engine computer . The engine computer uses these position sensors inputs to control the DC motor on the throttle body to open the throttle plate to control the speed . Plus there are position sensors inside the throttle body to input PCM/ECM to see if it's calculations are corect . Your best bet maybe to take it to a qualified repair shop .

Reduced Engine Power Mode
When the PCM detects a condition with the TAC system, the PCM may enter a reduced engine power mode. Reduced engine power may cause one or more of the following conditions:
• Acceleration limiting--The control module will continue to use the accelerator pedal for throttle control; however, the vehicle acceleration is limited.
• Limited throttle mode--The control module will continue to use the accelerator pedal for throttle control; however, the maximum throttle opening is limited.
• Throttle default mode--The control module will turn off the throttle actuator motor and the throttle will return to the spring loaded default position.
• Forced idle mode--The control module will perform the following actions:
- Limit engine speed to idle by positioning throttle position, or by controlling fuel and spark if throttle is turned off.
- Ignore accelerator pedal input.
• Engine shutdown mode--The control module will disable fuel and de-energize the throttle actuator.

2004 Audi Allroad - At start-up, self-check is fine ("OK"). Upon accelerating, ESP warning light comes on as speed exceeds 25 mph, and engine "stutters". If I slow down, or don't hit 25 in the first place,...


AWD vehicles likes its tires to be within 1/8 of an inch wear difference. Uneven tires cause problems with the transmission and drivetrain. ESP traction control with its speed sensors etc: could get varying reading with tires of different thread wear.

Engine light comes on and no acceleration response with my Camry ate a 2002


There should be codes thrown when this happening. Go to a local parts store and have them toss a decoder on it. They should be able to tell you what the code is and what part may be causing it. No acceleration sounds like the computer places the car in "limp" mode.

BMW X5 2004 TRANS FAILSAFE PROG


Hi; If I get the 'Trans Failsafe Prog" message twice within about 2 hours, The SES light will go on automatically. Since I do not seem to have any real transmission problems, this SES message clears itself in about 24 hours. The "Trans Failsafe Prog" messageseems to be used to indicate other transmission problems as well, like loss of transmission fluid, so be careful. I have a 2002 X5. Cheers. Omer
