Q: My ESP & engine light is on I also has no acceleration. I left the car in the on position overnight. I got a jump, still same.

asked by on

I left the truck in the ON position overnight. The battery was dead in the morning. I got a jump and it cranked right up. When I tried to drive, the gas pedal did not work. The truck only will go 5-10 mps on it own. I checked the fuses and they are good. I unhooked and hooked back up the battery, turned the key to the ON position for 10 seconds so the computer can fix itself then cranked it up but it did not make the lights go off and the pedal still is not working.. I cannot drive it.
My car has an automatic transmission.
