Asked by Mar 13, 2016 at 08:54 AM about the 2011 Ford Fiesta SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Suddenly while driving my Ford car accelerator become non responsive, it
will come into idle position, I hit the accelerator to  ground nothing
happened, now a days it keep on happening on every 2-3 days.
I went to Ford guys they are saying everything is fine, nothing is coming out
in scan also, they said change the battery as your car battery is weak due
to that Sensor sometime become non responsive, I changed that also but
no luck, problem still persists.
Please let me know if any one has any idea about it?

Is it only when the car is cold? If so, check the transmission fluid, to can be a tad low.

no its happened in normal temperature, normally when I drove about 10-15 minutes it start happening, if I off the engine for 10-15 minutes and start again everything is working fine again. Also in normal condition gas pedal is not so responsive.
