I partially blame myself for not bringing it to the dealer, but before I do, I'd like to know if anyone else has had this problem.
I bought my car last August. In December, I started up my car and noticed the lightning bolt on my dashboard light up. I looked it up, and it appears to be something electronic related.
From then on out, when the car is cold and/or if I try to step on the gas quickly right after I start the car it will stall. 90% of the time if I step on the gas it does not accelerate. I need to stop the car, turn it off, then turn it back on. Most of the time just by doing that the car acts fine. Sometimes I have to turn it off 2-3 times.
Since it's been warm, it hasn't done it, so I let it go. Well it was 70 today, and I start the car...same thing. The car stalls. I try to hit the gas, nothing. It was almost as if I was in neutral.
Is the car a lemon? Is this a common problem? Help please.
I called up...and the person said they have never heard of this problem (which I find very hard to believe). The big problem is that since it's warm out (and will be 80+ for the rest of the week), they might not be able to figure out the problem.
Is this familiar to anyone? God I hope so...
Let me try typing this again, since my f---ing internet decided to randomly drop out again when posting my reply.
The lightning bolt light indicates a problem with the electronic throttle, which would explain the poor running. IT IS NOT A LEMON!!! If this is your only problem and you said you haven't brought it to the dealer yet why would you automatically assume its a lemon??? Turn the ignition key on-off-on-off-on and a P code(s) will be displayed in the odometer. Post them here. I haven't run into an ETC problem yet on an LX myself. What year Charger and which engine???
