    2009 Ford F150 Speed Control #5

    Date of failure: july 3, 2009
    vin : 1ftpw14v59f...
    component: vehicle speed control
    while accelerating on a ramp to merge into traffic the truck accelerator pedal
    got stuck causing the truck to gain speed rapidly. The truck went from approx 25
    to 87mph. I was unable to get the pedal un-stuck. The brakes and emergency brake
    had little effect, i narrowly missed hitting another vehicle and was unable to get
    the truck to slow down for a few miles. I eventually was able to slow it to 30mph
    and put the truck in park and turn off the engine to make it stop completely. It has
    occurred once (and that is enough). I had the truck towed to a ford dealer and was
    later advised they could not replicate the problem so i could come pick the truck
    up. Nothing has been fixed. *tr
