My car has a slight hesitation about every 10 to 15 seconds kind of like when the air conditioner comes on you get a slight loss of power. Also 3 times now while driving the car has shut down to an idle and the wrench warning light comes on, so far we have been able to turn off the engine and re start it and go.
Can you please help?

Give us the code for the system.

The fly by wire system has a fault. Either the pedal sensor or the throttle body

I don't know how to get the code as the warning lite goes out after restarting, the auto parts guy said the computer doesn't store codes.

Thats why he a parts guy, not a tech. The system stores codes get a real shop with a real tech to pull the code for you
