I WAS DRIVING DOWN THE INTERSTATE WHEN MY CRUISE QUIT WORKING. THEN I NOTICED THE CAR WAS ACCELERATING. I HAD TO PUT BOTH FEET ON THE BRAKES TO COME TO A STOP. AT A STOP THE CAR WAS STILL REVVING UP, AND I COULD NOT STOP IT. I HAD TO HAVE THE CRUISE CONTROL CABLE REPLACED. THE CABLE HAD TWISTED AROUND THE ACCELERATOR CABLE. NOW 2 YEARS LATER THE CABLE HAS COME OFF AGAIN, HOWEVER THIS TIME IT DIDN'T WRAP AROUND THE OTHER CABLE AND CAUSE THE ACCELERATOR FORM STICKING. THE REPAIR SHOP PURCHASED A NEW CRUISE CONTROL CABLE DIRECTLY FROM FORD, AND THIS CABLE ALSO DOES NOT STAY ON. THE PLACE WHERE THE CABLE HOOKS ONTO IS NOT WORN, SO OBVIOUSLY FORD HAS A PROBLEM WITH THE DESIGN OF THE CRUISE CONTROL CABLE.
