FUEL/PROPULSION SYSTEM

7/30/2018 - LIHUE, HI
STARTED MY TRUCK UP. THEN SHIFTED INTO REVERSE WITH MY FOOT ON THE BRAKE, THE TRUCK SUDDENLY WENT INTO A SUDDEN ACCELERATION. LIKE I HAD MY FOOT ON THE GAS PEDAL. I HAD TO STEEP ON THE BRAKE PEDAL VERY HARD AND EVEN WITH THAT THE 5.7 HEMI WAS A LOT OF POWER TO STOP. I AVOIDED HITTING A CONCRETE WALL AND A SIDE OF A HOUSE. LUCKILY I SHIFTED INTO PARK AND TURNED IT OFF. IT COULD OF ENDED VERY BADLY. I NOW AM NOT GOING TO USE THE TRUCK UNTIL I FIND OUT WHAT+S GOING ON. I HAVE CALLED DODGE CORPORATION AND THEY SAID THEY NEVER HEARD OF THAT HAPPENING OR NOT AT LIBERTY TO SAY. I HAVE CONTACTED MY LOCAL DODGE DEALERSHIP AND MADE AN APPOINTMENT FOR A DIAGNOSTIC TEST. THEY TOLD ME ON THE PHONE THAT THIS IS THE FIRST TIME THAT THEY EVER HEARD OF SUCH A THING HAPPENING. I ADVISED THEM TO TAKE A LOOK AT GOOGLE AND TYPE IN DODGE RAM SUDDEN ACCELERATION. UPON MY OWN RESEARCH A NUMBER OF DODGE MECHANICS HAVE SAID THE FOLLOWING. 1. FLOOR MAT WAS STUCK UNDER PEDAL 2. TPS SENSOR 3. IAC SENSOR 5. THROTTLE BODY ONE OR ALL NEEDS TO BE REPLACED. IN CONCLUSION I WOULD HOPE THAT DODGE LOOKS AND ADDRESS THIS MATTER BEFORE IT+S TO LATE.
