acura tsx slow down


Asked by Oct 31, 2012 at 12:05 PM about the 2010 Acura TSX Sedan w/ Tech Pkg

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I was driving on the highway on my '10 Acura TSX (4-cil version). I tried to overtake a truck in front of me so I
accelerate and the revs started to go down and down and my accelerator didnt responded, I stopped and turn the
car off, i waited like 3 minutes and it was normal again, so... What happened????

1 Answer

I suspect like VW's have a built in software program that senses the car is out of control and throttle becomes disabled limiting power to drivetrain . VW owners can disable this in their set up, Acura I am unsure of.
