Throttle issue

So last night I was driving home when suddenly my car stalled. The car stayed on but no response when I hit the gas. I checked and cleaned cai filter but still same results. What can the problem be? Has this happened to anyone else? Any info is greatly appreciated. 2011 v6 cai

unhook battery, wait 10 minutes, try again. Likely just needs to reset something.

Uh Oh, unfortunately, it sounds like the same issue i was having a few weeks back before the transmission died on me. Hopefully its nothing though.

Do you have any warning lights on your dash? It sounds like you throttle body died.

I'll try disconnecting the battery . The only light that came up was a wrench.

I got the wrench as well before my transmission blew. Most people with this issue just need a new Throttle body. If youre still under warranty id just take it to the dealership right away

This is why investing in a code reader is worth the $50

Would my tuner work to diagnose?

Yes, a tuner is able to read codes

Had a similar problem once (thank God.) Interstate driving, I got into it and while accelerating, everything went dead. Still had electrical power just a motor that wouldn't go. Coasted to a stop on the side fearing something serious (I don't mean repairs - I mean the wife as this story in spouse brain means you broke it!) Turned key off, opened door, key in and car cranked right up as if nothing happened. Hasn't happened again since but it was clearly a system issue just needing a refresh. At what point did our cars and cell phones need an occasional reboot??

So I just replaced the throttle pedal position sensor. I connected the battery back and started car .10 minutes later the little wrench appeared again and car went into limp home mode. What can it be? My tuner shows no dtc's. Any ideas are greatly appreciated

If you have a tuner, it should read any codes that are appearing. Have you tried doing this?

Yea after I replaced throttle pedal position sensor. I scanned it again, this time no codes.I just cleaned the maf and throttle body. Do I need to recalibrate anything?

Nope. Just turn it on again. Once the wrench light comes on, if it comes on, scan for codes again. You should also be able to clear codes with it.

Also, if you are tuned, try going back to stock and retest. Assuming you dont have long tubes or anything major.

If it does come down to the tune, might want to check with your vendor that the transmission tuning and everything is on point.

Because on Autos, if that solenoid doesn't fill up due to bad tuning or even damage/failure, then your car isn't going anywhere when you hit the gas.
