MY WIFE HAD CALLED ME TODAY AND ADVISED THAT THE ACCELERATOR PEDAL HAD STUCK ON OUR 2005 FORD TAURUS AND ALMOST CAUSED HER TO HAVE AN ACCIDENT. WHEN I GOT HOME FROM WORK I TOOK THE TAURUS FOR A TEST DRIVE AND THE PROBLEM REOCCURRED. I WAS ON RT. 145 IN LEHIGH COUNTY PA WHEN MY CAR CONTINUED TO ACCELERATE WHEN I REMOVED MY FOOT FROM THE ACCELERATOR PEDAL. I WAS ABLE TO STOP THE CAR BY STANDING ON THE BRAKE PEDAL. WHEN I PUT THE CAR IN PARK THE RPM'S REVED IN EXCESS OF 4000. I TAPPED THE ACCELERATOR PEDAL SEVERAL TIMES AND THE IDLE FINALLY CAME DOWN. AFTER RETURNING HOME I FOUND THE CRUISE CONTROL CABLE HAD BECOME DISCONNECTED FROM THE THROTTLE BODY LINKAGE WHICH PREVENTS THE THROTTLE BODY FROM CLOSING. I WAS ABLE TO RECONNECT THE CRUISE CONTROL CABLE BUT IT BECOMES DISLODGED AS SOON AS THE THROTTLE IS OPENED. THE CLIP ON THE END OF THE CRUISE CONTROL CABLE IS MADE OF PLASTIC AND APPEARS TO BE INTACT BUT MUST BE WORN ON THE INSIDE BECAUSE IT WILL NOT STAY IN PLACE. THIS IS A DANGEROUS FLAW.
