Holy mackerel!I was reading through my old blog post about the DC Ragnar Relay in 2011, and was reminded about when my Ford Escape had a "stuck accelerator pedal" failure the week before.
A year later, Ford makes a recall about the exact same failure scenario!
When the gas pedal is pressed almost all the way down, a cruise control cable can become stuck between the engine cover and a cruise control cable cover. The problem can occur whether cruise control is in use or not.So it wasn't just me... Apparently somebody got killed from this failure. Eek!
