2006 Mercury Sable just stopped accelerating when driving and the transmission light came on. I put transmission fluid in and it still will not accelerate. Any suggestions

try running the fault codes to find the sensor/servo/ solenoid that is not working
if it drives but does not accelerate it could be a servo /solenoid or a TCM failure no communicating with the ecm due to bad harness connections or other wiring problem

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.

Vauxhall Astra 1.6 engine warning light came on and the car won't accelerate. Took to mechanic twice for car not accelerating when stepping on the accelerator. They replaced the accelerator peda

Unfortunateley there are lots of things that can cause this and they will all send the car into limp mode. The only way to get to the bottom of what is wrong is to get a diagnostic check carried out and obtain any fault codes and the systems they relate to. Has the fuel filter been replaced as a blockage in this can cause lack of power.

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
