I Was Driving On An Interchange Ramp At Approximately 50 Mph. It Was Two Lanes And A Semi Started To Move Over Into My Lane. I Pressed On The Accelerator To Kick It Into Overdrive To Get Past The Truck. All Of A Sudden, The Accelerator Went All The Way To The Floor And Stuck There. The Engine Started Revving At A High Rpm.. I Put The Truck Into Neutral And Kept Coasting As There Was No Place To Pull Off. The Engine Was Revving At 5000 Rpm. After About 15 Seconds, The Accelerator Returned To Normal And The Engine Rpm’s Returned To Normal. The Way It Happened Was Just As If The “resume” Button On The Cruise Control Had Been Pressed To Resume Speed After You Slow Down….the Accelerator Depresses On Its Own And The Truck Gets Back Up To The Set Speed. However…the Cruise Control Was Off Since I Disticntly Remember Turning If Off Prior To Getting Into Indianapolis. I Referenced Your Site And Found Action Number Ea98018 To Look Very Similar To This.

I Have Noticed A Couple Of Times That Due To The Relative Positions Of The Brake Pedal And Accelerator Pedal (both In Lateral Distance And In Height) That If You Do Not Get Your Left Foot Entirely Over Onto The Brake Pedal While Stopping Or Holding Stopped At An Intersection That You Can Also Catch The Accelerator Pedal While Trying To Brake. This Results In The Truck Trying To Move Forward And The Operator Trying To Depress The Brake Pedal Further With The Result Being To Depress The Acclerator Pedal Further As Well. This Can Occur Without Realizing That Your Foot Is Partially On The Brake Pedal And The Accelerator Pedal (once The Brake Pedal Is Depressed Far Enough) I Have Caught This Occurring Several Times And It Can Be Quite Disconcerting When The Truck Starts Moving Forward Even Though You Are Deprssing The Brake Pedal Harder And Harder. I Believe The Problem To Be A Design Related One That Is Built Into The Design Of The Controls. While It Has Not Resulted In An Incident With My Truck Yet It Certainly Could Especially If A Person Panics And Doesn’t Realize What Is Happening. I Believe This Failure Could Explain Some The Complaints Recieved About The Trucks Accelerating When The Brake Pedal Is Depressed.

My 1998 ford f-150 Started Acting Up When The Cruise Control Buttons Were Set On. The Car Would Hesitate And Not Want To Pull. Once We Got Home We Turned The vehicle Off And Did Not Think Anything More About It. The Following Day We Went For A Drive And Noticed What We Thought Was Steam Coming From Underneath The Hood. I Pulled The vehicle Over And Lifted The Hood To Inspect It. When I Lifted The Hood I Was Engulfed In Flash Flames. I Immediately Dropped To The Ground To Put Out The Flames. When My Friend Helped Me Off The Ground The Truck Was On Fire Under The Hood. We Immediately Called For Medical Assistance And Was Transported To Hospital Via Life Star Helicopter.
