While driving from a stop total loss of gas acceleration.

Asked by Jul 20, 2014 at 08:31 PM about the 2011 Ford Mustang V6 Convertible

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Unable to press on gas pedal to obtain  acceleration  coasted to the shoulder and turned
car off.  The idiot light was on that resembled a wrench.  I have 22,210 miles on the car.  
When I restarted the car it drove fine.  I decided to bring it to my local mechanic to run a
test on it in the morning.  Although, I don't want to just replace parts that don't need to be
replaced.  Need advice

Shutting car off and restarting it resets the limp mode and it should drive normally again. This info should be in your owners manual too.

same thing just happened to me... did you ever find out what happened?

i also have a 2013 mustang

I have a 2013 Ford Mustang V6 3.7L, automatic, premium coupe. same happened to me it went into limp mode. This happens when having the a/c unit on, drives perfect when vehicle was turned off and turned back on shortly after issue like nothing happened. I took it in to the dealer and they can't replicate issue. of course the code is not on the log. This is not fun and has happened to me twice so dangerous while driving on highway speeds of 70mph.
