My gas pedal will not engage when I push on it.

Asked by Oct 24, 2014 at 08:04 PM about the 1995 Eagle Talon 2 Dr TSi Turbo AWD Hatchback

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Before I started having this problem the battery terminal touched the strut bar and shorted out the battery and the car immediately died.  I replaced the battery and the car starts, but when I push the gas pedal it does not move at all.  I am hoping I can fix it myself without having to have it towed to a repair shop.

When this happen,you shorted out a sensor,or damaged the ecm,you may try leaving the positive cable off over night,to let the ecm reset,if this doe, not help,you will have to have it scanned to see if it messed up sensor,s or damaged the ecm.
