Hi there:

It’s very difficult to diagnose a problem remotely; however, there are a few things that could be causing this issue to occur. In most cases, when the stablitrak and check engine light illuminate, it’s because a sensor has detected a mechanical fault within the driveline; ranging from CV axle to the transmission. However, it’s possible that you have a minor electrical glitch that is causing a system error and triggering a "limp mode" which could be the source of your acceleration proinstblems. I agree that going to the dealer is a big expense, but you might want to have a professional mobile mechanic come to your location and complete a check engine light inspection first, so they can determine what is triggering this issue and recommend the right repairs be completed.
