Hey guys,

Question for everyone..... This is the second time this has happened. I stomped the gas to pass someone being dumb and the check engine light goes on and I can't accelerate. The rpms go up but I get no action. Try to put it in manual mode but no luck. Pull over, shut the car off, turn it on, works fine but light is still on. My Diablo reads no code. What's the issue?

Hi Josh,

Sorry to hear about this! If you decide to visit your local dealership for further diagnosis I'd be happy to offer assistance if needed. Just send us a PM with your VIN and let me know.

No thanks Andrea. Dealerships are to expensive for me. I do all my own work unless it needs machining. Any ideas on what the issue is would be great though

I had all sorts of acceleration problems (but no CEL) in my 2010 and the dealership was worthless! I finally found a thread about removing the #2 (25 amp) fuse in the engine compartment fuse box for a couple of minutes to reset the PCM "learn" feature. I was STUNNED at what a difference it made. Now, as soon as mine acts up I repeat the procedure and it's cured.

This is not a cure for his problem. His engine light is coming on. It is not a question of improving his car's performance. He is getting no acceleration. There is obviously a problem with the electronics. Unfortunately, with modern engines, you often need sophisticated diagnostic equipment to pinpoint the trouble. This usually means a trip to the dealer.

A code reader is cheap (or maybe can be borrowed). Just trying to offer some assistance.

Here is a great way to lookup your engine trouble codes without the use of a scanner.

1) Turn key to on (not Start) and back to ACC.
2) Do this three times (REAL FAST)
3) On the third turn, stop in the ON position.

Dash will give any error code or codes, EXAMPLE: P1521

When the diagnostic is finished it will read **DONE**

NEXT- Use the following web site to find out the meaning of the code:
