This may be due to the traction control motor fouling up for the throttle cable control

Have you tried checking the battery? Even if the lights come on it may not have enough juice to get engine started, I would try that first. You can take it to your local auto parts store to have it tested or if you have a multimeter you can test it yourself. Should have around 12.6 Volts, if battery is good then it may very well be the starter, almost sure it's the battery. Good Luck.

Sometimes no acceleration with pedal after startup on 2004 f-150 3.4l


these are "fly by wire" meaning there is no throttle cable, its all electronically controlled. best thing would to be take it to a shop and let them use a scanner on it so you can see exactly where your fault lies.

No throttle response


What you replaced is the APP(accelerator pedal position) It is part of the electronic throttle control,what was truly needed is know as the TAC MOTOR. This recieves signal from the APP.The TAC is what accelerate the car.The only thing you can do other than replace the TAC,is do a TAC relearn .Turn thhe key off. wait ten seconds,Turn key on with the engine off.leave 1 minute. Turn key off start the vehicle you will hear the TAC motor setting itself.

Nissan Installed throttle reprogram


Here is the way to do it without the nissan scan tool. Make sure to follow all steps and it it best if you use a watch with a second hand.
1. Perform "Accelerator Pedal Released Position Learning".
a. Make sure that accelerator pedal is fully released.
b. Turn ignition switch 'ON' and wait at least 2 seconds.
c. Turn ignition switch 'OFF' wait at least 10 seconds.
d. Turn ignition switch 'ON' and wait at least 2 seconds.
e. Turn ignition switch 'OFF' wait at least 10 seconds.
2. Perform "Throttle Valve Closed Position Learning" .
a. Make sure that accelerator pedal is fully released.
b. Turn ignition switch 'ON'.
c. Turn ignition switch 'OFF' wait at least 10 seconds.
Make sure that throttle valve moves during above 10 seconds by confirming the operating sound. 3. Start engine and warm it up to normal operating temperature.
4. Check that all items listed under the topic 'PREPARATION' (previously mentioned) are in good order.
5. Turn ignition switch 'OFF' and wait at least 10 seconds.
6. Confirm that accelerator pedal is fully released, turn ignition switch 'ON' and wait 3 seconds.
7. Repeat the following procedure quickly five times within 5 seconds.
a. Fully depress the accelerator pedal.
b. Fully release the accelerator pedal. 8. Wait 7 seconds, fully depress the accelerator pedal and keep it for approx. 20 seconds until the MIL stops blinking and turned ON.
9. Fully release the accelerator pedal within 3 seconds after the MIL goes off.
10. Start engine and let it idle.
11. Wait 20 seconds.
12. Rev up the engine two or three times and make sure that idle speed and ignition timing are within the specifications.
13. If idle speed and ignition timing are not within the specification, the result will be incomplete. In this case, more test needs to be done.

Oil light


Hi lady d tilli,

Take off the fuse cover on the drivers side of the dash. there should be a bunch of fuses. in the middle is a red button that says "reset." turn your key to the on position, but DO NOT START. press the reset button until the change oil light blinks, then turn the key back off it should be fine after that. for the 05's theres somthing you have to do with the gas pedal. i think you do the same, by turning the key on but not starting...and then tapping the gas pedal 3 times.

Hope this helps a bit,
Good luck,
Eitan.
