VEHICLE STARTED ACCELERATING AT VARIOUS TIMES, TAPPING THE ACCELERATOR SEEMED TO HELP. TOOK THE CAR TWICE TO THE SAME FORD DEALERSHIP, THEY CLEANED THE IDLE CONTROL MOTOR BECAUSE IT WAS DIRTY. FORD SAID IF IT ACTS UP AGAIN THE IDLE CONTROL WOULD HAVE TO BE REPLACED. I DECIDED TO TAKE IT TO ANOTHER NON-FORD MECHANIC AND WITHIN (2) MINUTES HE HAD THE ANSWER. THE CRUISE CONTROL WAS HANGING OPEN ON THE THROTTLE PLATE. I HAD HIM DISCONNECT THE CRUISE CONTROL, BELIEVE ME, I WAS VERY APPREHENSIVE ABOUT THIS. IN THE MEAN TIME I HAD THEM ORDER ANOTHER CRUISE CONTROL CABLE. IT TOOK ABOUT A WEEK TO ARRIVE, BUT I HAD NO SUDDEN ACCELERATIONS WHAT SO EVER. I DECIDED NOT TO HAVE THE NEW ONE PUT ON. IT IS NOW SEPTEMBER, AND I HAVE HAD NO SUDDEN ACCELERATIONS SINCE MID MAY. I WANTED TO BE CERTAIN THAT THIS WAS THE OBVIOUS ANSWER TO THIS PROBLEM BEFORE I FILED A COMPLAINT.
