How to stop your vehicle if accelerator sticks
Last month, Toyota issued a massive recall of nearly 4 million Toyota and Lexis vehicles. The recall is intended to fix a very dangerous defect which can lead to Unintended Acceleration of the vehicle. Initially thought to be an issue with floor mats, the real problem involves the cars electronic throttle system. The recall was prompted by a high speed crash in August in California of a Lexus barreling out of control. As the vehicle hit speeds exceeding 120 mph, family members made a frantic 911 call and said the accelerator was stuck and they couldn't stop the vehicle.

Runaway Prius Part 1
On August 10th, 2006 my wife experienced an unintended acceleration with our 2005 Prius which was 10 months old and had only 13,000 miles on it. She accelerated to 90 mph and had to exit the interstate and ditch the car through a forest, ending up in a river.

Dateline NBC - Sudden Acceleration Investigation - Segment 3
www.suddenacceleration.com A Boston mechanic tells of his experiences with sudden acceleration. He simulates sudden acceleration just like Sam Sero. He shows that when a wire in the cruise control is manipulated, the gas pedal moves on its own, and the engine goes to wide open throttle (WOT). More people tell of their sudden acceleration stories. A Ford dealership mechanic tells how he wrote to Ford asking about sudden acceleration, and Ford responded that he should check the wiring in the cruise control. The mechanic explains that he found a cruise control unit from a car that experienced sudden acceleration in which two wires were in contact with each other. Ford's own investigations show they knew of all the possible causes of sudden acceleration.





Toyota Recall - a look inside the Gas Pedal and all its parts - a YouTube first
Carquestions takes an up close look at the inside of the CTS manufactured Gas Pedal to see how it works and what's causing it to stick leading Toyota to recall millions of it's car and trucks. Surprisingly it has only two moving parts and on first look appears to be a well made part. There is some "Star Trek" style physics going on inside with a device known as a "magnetic field generator". Lets Hope Toyota has a "Scotty" type who can figure out a solution and fast.





Re: Kia Sorento Stuck Accelerator (Sudden Acceleration)
This video is a response to this story: http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/headlines/2012/08/stuck-accelerator-leads-iowa- woman-on-real-life-horror-ride/ I just wanted to make this video to prove that you CAN infact shut a runaway 2011-2013 Kia Sorento off. You have three choices: -The most obvious being putting the car in neutral. I can understand that if she had it in manual mode then she could have easily gotten confused. -You can jab the Push to start button OR hold it for 3 seconds....either one puts the vehicle in Accessory mode (keeps steering wheel unlocked) -And finally, you can stand on the brakes. This kills power to the engine and brings it down to an idle. I am not one to point fingers but personally after seing that there are three ways to kill a runaway Sorento. She should have easily been able to do this within the 35 minute police chase.
