You might have shut off the traction control. Try pressing the button. See the attach link for location. http://www.rockauto.com/getimage/getimage.php?imagekey=43710&imageurl=http%3A//www.rockauto.com/info/SMP/DS714_PRIMARY.jpg

When one of your front wheels slip during acceleration, the traction control reduces engine power, and uses the anti-lock to pulse the brakes on that wheel. This directs power to the other front wheel, to help you get moving.
