WHILE MERGING ONTO THE INTERSTATE I ACCELERATED TO 65-70 MPH. ONCE ON THE INTERSTATE I LET OFF OF THE ACCELERATOR BUT THE TRUCK CONTINUTED ACCELERATION UP TO 90MPH WHILE HOLDING AT 4000 RPMS. BRAKES WERE APPLIED TO HELP CONTROL THE VEHICLE SPEED WHILE I SHIFTED TO NEUTRAL AND PULLED INTO THE EMERGNCY LANE. ONCE STOPPED AND IN PARK VEHICLE CONTINUED TO HOLD 4000 RPMS. I SHUT THE VEHICLE OFF THEN RESTARTED AND THE RPMS JUMPED TO 4000 IMMEDIATELY. I SHUT OFF AGAIN LEFT OFF FOR 15 MINUTES, PRESSED THE ACCELERATOR A FEW TIMES TO MAKE SURE IT WASN'T STICKING TO ANYTHING (IT WAS NOT) AND RESTARTED. AT THIS TIME THE VEHICLE APPEARED TO WORK NORMALLY, DROVE ON HOME. TOOK THE TRUCK TO THE DEALER THE FOLLOWING MONDAY, LEFT IT FOR THEM ON TUESDAY. THEY SAID THERE WERE NO CODES AND COULD NOT REPLICATE THE ISSUE AND THEREFORE NOTHING THEY COULD DO. THIS IS THE NINTH PROBLEM I HAVE HAD TO TAKE THE TRUCK IN TO HAVE FIXED UNDER THE WARRANTY.
