I had the same problem, try running a bottle of Lucas oil fuel cleaner through your gas tank, also, changing your fuel filter.

Warm up engine. - Put in neutral (n)! -Make sure everything is off (RADIO, AC, ETC.) -Turn ignition switch ?OFF? and wait at least 10 seconds. -Confirm that accelerator pedal is fully released, turn ignition switch ?ON? and wait 3 seconds. -Repeat the following procedure quickly five times within 5 seconds. a. Fully depress the accelerator pedal. b. Fully release the accelerator pedal. -Wait 7 seconds, fully depress the accelerator pedal and keep it for approx. 20 seconds until the MIL stops blinking and turned ON. -Fully release the accelerator pedal within 3 seconds after the MIL goes ON. -Start engine and let it idle. -Wait 20 seconds.


Turn the ignition key to the run position and pump the accelerator 3 times within 5 seconds.



The purpose of an accelerator is the car is to give the engine gas so the car will move.


Look up "Idle Re-Learn" for Nissan Sentra. There is a process where the throttle body/Idle Sensor must be re-set. This can be done at the dealer or through a series of steps. Idle Relearn BASIC SERVICE PROCEDURE - Turn ignition switch OFF and wait at least 10 seconds. - Confirm that accelerator pedal is fully released, turn ignition switch ON and wait 3 seconds. - Repeat the following procedure quickly five times within 5 seconds. a. Fully depress the accelerator pedal. b. Fully release the accelerator pedal. - Wait 7 seconds, fully depress the accelerator pedal and keep it for approx. 20 seconds until the MIL stops blinking and turned ON. - Fully release the accelerator pedal within 3 seconds after the MIL goes off. - Start engine and let it idle. - Wait 20 seconds. - Rev up the engine two or three times and make sure that idle speed and ignition timing are within the specifications.


why won't 1992 Accura Integra RS start in warm weather


Your 3.2 liter V6 engine has a timing BELT


If the engine is revving up, then the transmission is having problems. If the engine is not revving, then check the linkage from the accelerator to the throttle body.


AnswerI have a Titan and you cannot reset the computer by diconnecting the battery. It must be taken to the Nissan dealer and have it cleared.*edit:ECU ResettingTiming is extremely critical. If it is NOT DONE within the specifird time, the ECU will not reset and the Check Engine Light (CEL) will continue to remain ON. A stop watch or an analog clock with a second hand will be useful.Operations Procedures:1. Confirm that accelerator pedal is fully released, turn ignition switch "ON" and wait 3 seconds.2. Repeat the following steps (2a and 2b) procedures quickly five times within 5 seconds.2a. Fully depress the accelerator pedal (HARD).2b. Fully release the accelerator pedal.3. Wait 7 seconds, fully depress the accelerator pedal and hold for approx. 10 seconds until the CEL starts blinking.4. Fully release the accelerator pedal (while the CEL is still blinking).5. Wait 10 seconds.6. Fully depress the accelerator pedal and hold for more than 10 seconds.7. Fully release the accelerator pedal (The CEL light will continue to blink).8. Turn ignition switch to "OFF" position and now you can start the car. The CEL light should be gone.If the CEL light continues to remain ON, repeat the above steps. Timing is extremely critical for resetting the ECU.Accelerator Pedal Release Position LearningOperation Procedure:1. Make sure that the accelerator pedal is fully released.2. Turn ignition switch "ON" and wait at least 2 seconds.3. Turn ignition switch "OFF" wait at least 10 seconds.4. Turn ignition switch "ON" and wait at least 2 seconds.5. Turn ignition switch "OFF" wait at least 10 seconds.Throttle Valve Closed Position LearningOperation Procedures:1. Make sure that accelerator pedal is fully released.2. Turn ignition switch is "ON."3. Turn ignition switch is "OFF" wait at least 10 seconds.Make sure that the throttle valve moves during above 10 seconds by confirming the operating sound.Idle Air Volume Learning (Throttle Position Learning)Operation Procedures:1. Perform "Accelerator Pedal Released Position Learning."2. Perform "Throttle Valve Closed Position Learning."3. Start engine and warm it up to normal operating temperature.4. Turn ignition switch "OFF" and wait at least 10 seconds.5. Conform that accelerator pedal is fully released, turn ignition switch "ON" and wait 3 seconds.6. Repeat the following (steps 7a, 7b) procedures quickly five times within 5 seconds.7a. Fully depress the accelerator pedal (HARD)7b. Fully release the accelerator pedal.8. Wait 7 seconds, fully depress the accelerator pedal and hold for approx. 20 seconds until the Check Engine Light (CEL) stops blinking and turned ON.9. Fully release the accelerator pedal within 3 seconds after the CEL is ON.10. Start engine and let it idle.11. Wait 20 seconds.12. Rev up the engine two or three times and make sure the idle speed and ignition timing are within the specifications.


1 Put the key in the ignition and turn it to the "On" position, but don't start the engine.2 Press down on the accelerator very fast five times within five seconds. You have to press the pedal all the way to the floor each time. Wait 10 seconds.3Press the accelerator to the floor and hold it for 10 seconds, or until the "Check Engine" light turns on and off. Repeat this step again.4Turn off the ignition and wait about three minutes. Start the engine and examine the instrument panel. The Check Engine light should now be off and the ECU reset



1. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position. Do notstart the engine.2. Fully depress the accelerator pedal, slowly, three timeswithin 10 seconds.3. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF/LOCK position.1. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position. Do notstart the engine.2. Fully depress the accelerator pedal, slowly, three timeswithin 10 seconds.3. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF/LOCK position.


turn the ignition on but do not start, press accelerator all the way to floor three times within five seconds.


Try turning key to "on" position without starting engine Depress Accelerator 5 times to floor within 10 seconds


Turn ignition to on without starting engine and press all the way down on the accelerator 3 times within 5 seconds


Why does the engine slow down when you press the accelerator on a 90 Plymouth grand voyager LE 3.3L?


If the oil change light on your Vauxhall Antara 2.0CDTI doesn't reset after changing the oil, you can reset it manually. Make sure all doors on the vehicle are closed, fully press the accelerator to the floor, and switch on the engine. Press the accelerator down three times in five seconds, and turn off the engine.


see owner's manual With the ignition turned on (motor not running), pump the accelerator 3 times within 5 seconds, light should flash.


For a gas engine, the accelerator opens a valve in the carburetor/intake manifold, which allows more air into the engine. With more air, the carb/injector will deliver more fuel. WIth more air and fuel going into the engine, the engine will make more power.


The owners manul says......." with engine off, put key in ignition , turn to ON (do not crank over) push accelerator completely to the floor 5 times, turn off key. Start engine, Service Engine light should go off after a few seconds."


Turn ignition to the "ON" position. Slowly depress accelerator pedal 3 times within 5 seconds. "CHANGE ENGINE OIL" lamp will start to flash. Turn ignition off. Start engine. Light will go out. Also works on 2006 Envoys. I would also suggest to depress the accelerator sharply and not too slowly otherwise it doesn't register.


2004 Chevrolet Suburban1. Turn the ignition key to RUN with the engine off.2. Fully press and release the accelerator pedal slowly three times within five seconds. If the OIL LIFE RESET message flashes for 10 seconds, the system is resetting.3. Turn the key to LOCK.


Yes, a broken or disconnected accelerator cable is the likely cause for the accelerator pedal to quit working. The car will still run fine but will not be able to accelerate past idle.


coasting is when you are driving a car with the engine on but you are not using the accelerator to propel the car
