Why dose my 307 2ltr sw continually revert to the garage computer showing accellertor foot pedal problem when it has been relaced twice and rewiered ?

Then the issue is not the throttle pedal sensor, it lies somewhere else. Proper diagnostics will reveal the true issue, no guessing about it.

I have recently purchased a 2012 yukon with a 5.3 engine (495 Miles). It feels like the throttle has about a 1/2-1" movement in the accellerator pedal before the engine responds. I have an appointment

Even though you are pushing a pedal with your foot. most of these vehicles are all electronic. In other words you are not pushing or moving a cable like in an older vehicle. It more than likely has sensor on the pedal, which in turns sends a signal to the throttle body. I have an 04 Suburban that feels much like you described & it is all electronic.

Brake lights do not come on

You may have a defective brake switch. The switch is located behind the brake foot pedal. When you apply pressure to the brake foot pedal, the switch should compress.

I have a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee and when I accellerating, it sounds like air or a whoosing sound is coming from the gas pedal. When foot is off the gas pedal, the sound stops. Any suggestions?

I have a 1990 model Daihatsu Charade G102. I had to replace the Head Gasket which i did with a friend via the manual. when we put together it started first time then stalled. It would only keep going if i...

The popping/stalling suggests you guys got your valve timing wrong when re-fitting timing belt. Remove your cover and double-check your timing marks on cam gear and crankshaft gear. Align you timing marks.

Brake lights are stuck on on my 1992 buick Riviera. Draining battery. How do I fix this?

There is a brake light switch down on the brake pedal arm its like a push button switch when you press the brake pedal down the button goes in on the switch making the brake lights come on and when you release the brake pedal the button is supposed to come back out if it sticks in the brake lights will stay on even when your foot is off the brake pedal so all you have to do is buy the brake switch and either replace it yourself or have a shop replace it and your lights should go off thus no killing of your battery.

Hi I have a Mitsubishi Lancer Wagon and for some strange reason my brake lights come on, usually at night. The only way to get them off is to disconnect the battery. Connecting the battery next morning...

It would appear the brake light switch has either failed or came out of adjustment. Look under the dash at your brake pedal and bracket, you should see a switch that when the pedal is press, the pedal moves away from it. In short this pedal is normally closed ( in the on position) and when your brake pedal comes back (foot off the brake) the switch then opens, turning off the brake lights. This switch may have failed on or has simply come out of adjustment and is not coming in proper contact with the brake pedal.

I hope this may have assited you,

The car will not stay running after you start it. The fuel pump, spark plugs, and throttle position sensor have been changed.

Will it stay running if you hold your foot on the accellerator pedal??? If so you may need an iac ( idle air control)

Check oil light will not reset

Try to press the gas pedal 4 times and hold it down on the 4th wait for the light to flash and go out. then start the car with your foot off the accellerator pedal. I hope this helps.
