Gas Pedal Not Working! Safety Issue, Help!

If you believe you have a safety issue then take your car to the dealer and leave it until they find and fix the problem.

Your dealer needs to put a PIWIS on the car and have one person drive the car while a second person monitors the PIWIS.

Thanks, will try that.

Any other suggestions anyone?

Sounds like water in you wires. Water can sometimes

cause a short. If this goes away when things

heat up, then you know it's water.

Thanks for your input Paul.

Which wires could have gotten wet?

Just to give a bit of history...I washed the car about 6 weeks ago, stored/garaged it for 3 weeks, drove it for 10 min, stored/garaged it again for 3 weeks, then started drivign it daily since a few days ago (which is when the problem materialized).

Do you think it could still be water?

Read Loren's post again carefully, there is no room to take risk on safety items.

I bought the car second hand and the original dealer is out of state...and warranty has expired already.

How should I handle it with the local dealer? What obligations, if any, would the local dealer have for an issue like this?

You might be amazed. Most dealers want to be your friend

so that you will buy your next car with them.

Go to the dealer to get their advice.

If you think its water, I would place the car in a hermetically closed space and have a dehumidifier work in for a couple of days.. Dont forget to open up all doors and hoods..

I know this is not the wisest think to do, however I would give it a shot before going to the dealer

This is obviously a trick question but I just can't resist. What is it about the advise you've received so far that you still feel compelled to ignore ?
