VEHICLE SPEED DID NOT REDUCE AFTER REMOVING FOOT FROM PEDAL. APPLIED BRAKES TO SLOW VEHICLE, AND THEN VEHICLE RESUMED ACCELERATION WHEN REMOVED FOOT FROM BRAKE. WAS ABLE TO "UNSTICK" THROTTLE BY REPEATEDLY TAPPING ACCELERATOR PEDAL, AND ALSO PULLING UP ON IT WITH MY FOOT FROM UNDERNEATH. USED BRAKES TO COME TO A STOP. MECHANIC FOUND THE CRUISE CONTROL CABLE HAD COME UNATTACHED, POSSIBLY GETTING CAUGHT UP IN THE THROTTLE SYSTEM. CABLE WAS REATTACHED. ON 10/21/12 CRUISE CONTROL WOULD NOT ENGAGE. 10 MILES LATER VEHICLE WOULD NOT DE-ACCELERATE. AGAIN PUMPED GAS PEDAL WHILE APPLYING BRAKE PEDAL. VEHICLE RESUMED NORMAL OPERATION. CONTACTED FORD AFTER SEEING NUMEROUS ONLINE POSTINGS ABOUT THIS, AND THE NHTSA INVESTIGATION (MARCH 2012) AND WAS TOLD THERE IS NO RECALL OR SAFETY BULLETIN REGARDING THE DANGLING CRUISE CONTROL CABLE GETTING STUCK IN THE THROTTLE BODY, BUT THAT I COULD GET IT REPAIRED AT MY OWN EXPENSE.
