MY DAUGHTER CALLED ME FRANTIC WHEN THE CAR STARTED ACCELERATING BY ITSELF WHEN DRIVING ABOUT 35MPH. SHE MANAGED TO SLOW DOWN THE VEHICLE WITH THE BRAKES AND WENT TO A NEAR PARKING LOT. SHE PUT THE CAR IN PARK AND THE ENGINE WAS AT ABOUT 4000 RPM AND THEN SHE TURNED OFF THE CAR. WHEN I ARRIVED 20MIN LATER I STARTED THE CAR AND THE ENGINE WAS INDEED AT 4000RPM WHILE IN PARK. I TAP TWICE ON THE GAS PEDAL AND THE ENGINE WENT BACK TO NORMAL RANGE (BELOW 1000). I DECIDED TO DRIVE IT HOME. DURING THAT DRIVE ABOUT 6 MILES THE CAR REPEATED THE INCIDENT. I WENT TO THE SIDE OF THE ROAD AND TAP ON THE GAS PEDAL AND AGAIN UNSTUCK THE PEDAL. NEXT DAY I FOUND THAT THE CRUISE CONTROL CABLE WAS DISCONNECTED AT THE THROTTLE CAM. I RECONNECTED IT BUT WHEN I ASKED MY KID TO REV UP THE ENGINE IT CAME OUT AGAIN AND BLOCKED THE THROTTLE CAM FROM RETURNING ALL THE WAY AND STUCK AT HIGH RPM. THE CRUISE CONTROL CABLE GOT REPLACED AND ISSUED IS SOLVED.
