So the dreaded has happened... I was driving along the highway this afternoon when the EPS light popped on and all of a sudden the car did not want to accelerate. I pulled off and turned off the car, and when I turned it on again the check engine light had come on as well. She still does not want to speed up and I clunked my way to the doctor, planning on scanning for codes when I get home hoping it’ll throw something... I read that it could possibly be the reluctor rings but I’m not very car savvy and was wondering if anybody else might have any ideas or experience.

Well, just in case anyone wanted an update... Took the wheels off and cleaned the rings, left side was absolutely covered in gunk! Lights and codes have gone away, and I have an accelator pedal on tab in case they come back again ? She’s been behaving since then, no problems. Well, now the driver lock won’t lock, but that’s a problem for another forum post ?
