I WAS DRIVING DOWN MY STREET AND BRAKED TO PULL INTO MY DRIVEWAY, AFTER IN MY DRIVEWAY I TOUCHED THE ACCELERATOR (TO GET UP THE SLIGHT GRADE) AND MY TRUCK WENT WIDE OPEN THROTTLE!! I MASHED ON THE BRAKE BUT THE TRUCK CONTINUED TO ACCELERATE UNCONTROLLABLY AND CRASHED INTO MY BRICK HOME. EVEN AFTER IMPACT AND ME CONTINUING TO APPLY FULL BRAKE IT WAS STILL WIDE OPEN THROTTLE AND BURNING OUT. I FINALLY CAME TO MY SENSES AND SHUT THE IGNITION OFF AND THE STOPPED IT. I HAD THE TRUCK TOWED TO MY LOCAL DEALER AS RECOMMENDED BY FORD CUSTOMER CARE REP. THE DEALERSHIP RAN A DIAGNOSTICS CHECK AND FOUND NOTHING AS WELL AS TRIED TO GET IT TO DUPLICATE THE PROBLEM WITH NO LUCK. I HAD A STATE TROOPER CERTIFIED IN DOWNLOADING EVENT RECORDER DATA DO SUCH TO MY TRUCK. THE DATA SHOWS EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENED..BUT DOES NOT DIFFERENTIATE BETWEEN THE ACCELERATOR BEING PUSHED VS.THE ACCELERATOR POSITION AS INDICATED. HOWEVER, IT DOES SHOW SERVICE BRAKE APPLIED AND CONTINUAL ACCELERATION AT THE SAME TIME WHICH I CAN PROVE WAS NOT DONE BY ME! I HAVE PICTURES OF ABRASIONS TO MY RIGHT SHIN AND KNEE FROM THE STEERING COLUMN AND DASH..MY RIGHT FOOT WAS FULLY APPLIED ON THE BRAKE PEDAL CAUSING THE ABRASIONS AT IMPACT DUE TO BEING DIRECTLY IN LINE WITH THE STEERING COLUMN. MY LEFT LEG HAD ZERO ABRASIONS...SINCE TO THE LEFT OF THE STEERING COLUMN. IF I WAS TO BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE DATA SHOWN IN THE DOWN LOAD I WOULD OF HAD TO HAVE MY LEFT FOOT ON THE BRAKE AND THUS SUSTAINING ABRASIONS TO THAT LEG. IT IS ALSO IMPOSSIBLE TO USE THE RIGHT FOOT TO BRAKE AND ACCELERATE SIMULTANEOUSLY TO ACHIEVE THE ACCELERATION INDICATED...ONES LEG HAS TO BE COCKED TO THE SIDE AND OUT OF LINE OF THE STEERING COLUMN. EVERYTHING ON MY PICKUP IS OEM....INCLUDING THE FLOOR MATS...WHICH CONTRARY TO SOME BELIEFS THAT COULD BE THE CAUSE. MY TRUCK HAS SAT AT THE DEALERSHIP UNTOUCHED SINCE THEY LOOKED AT IT.
