My car doesn't accelerate when pedal is pressed after a complete stop

Asked by Sep 09, 2015 at 10:48 AM about the 2009 Nissan Cube SL

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My car is a 2009 Nissan cube. I stopped at a red light and then pressed on the pedal to go and my car wouldn't move and then was creeping through the light.  After the pedal was floored for several seconds it jerked forward and accelerated. SES light is not on. Quite scary in traffic. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Time to have your local mechanic look at it. Sounds like it is associated to the throttle position sensor and or wiring.
