I WAS TRAVELING DOWN A COUNTRY BLACKTOP AT ABOUT APPROXIMATELY 58 MPH WHEN I WAS ABOUT TO MEET A CAR ON THIS NARROW ROAD AND PROCEEDED TO SLOW DOWN. BUT WHEN I TOOK MY FOOT OFF THE ACCELERATOR THE SPEEDOMETER CONTINUED TO CLIMB SO I PUSHED ON THE BRAKE AND LET OFF THE BRAKE AND ONCE AGAIN IT CONTINUED TO CLIMB THIS TIME, I SHIFTED INTO NEUTRAL AND PUMPED THE ACCELERATOR AND THE ENGINE IDLED DOWN. I THEN PUT THE CAR BACK INTO DRIVE AND PROCEEDED DOWN THE ROAD AFTER A SHORT WAY IT REPEATED THE ACCELERATION AGAIN AS I APPROACHED A SHARP CURVE I AGAIN TOOK IT OUT OF GEAR. AFTER DRIVING HOME I LOOKED UNDER THE HOOD AND FOUND THAT MY CRUISE CONTROL CABLE HAD DETACHED ITSELF AND WAS HUNG UP ON THE THROTTLE BODY HOLDING IT OPEN. I THEN TOOK IT TO MY FORD DEALER WHERE I ASK THEM TO UNHOOK AND ORDER ME A NEW ONE. I LATER HAD THE NEW ONE INSTALLED. JUST RECENTLY IN FEB. AFTER HAVING MY OIL CHANGED IT HAPPENED AGAIN. I WAS DRIVING AT NIGHT IN THE RAIN AT A SPEED OF ABOUT 35 MPH I WAS ABLE ONCE AGAIN DRIVING HOME AND UNHOOKING THE CABLE. I ASKED MY FORD DEALER ABOUT A SERVICE BULLETIN AND THEY WERE UNAWARE. THE CABLE IS STILL UNHOOKED AND I WOULD LIKE TO USE MY CRUISE BUT WON'T UNTIL THEY FIND A FIX. MY FORD DEALER IS CARSON FORD HAMILTON ,ILL AND KNOW ABOUT MY TO INCIDENCE. UPDATED 05/24/12 THE CONSUMER STATED SHE WAS REAR ENDED AND PUSHED INTO ANOTHER VEHICLE. HER VEHICLE SUSTAINED DAMAGE TO THE FRONT AND REAR AREA. THE VEHICLE WAS TOTALED. THE CONSUMER WOULD LIKE HER VEHICLE DELETED FROM THE LIST OF AFFECTED VEHICLES. UPDATED 05/25/12
