THE FIRST INCIDENT MY BROTHER WAS ALONE AND DRIVING THE CAR. HE ACCELERATED AFTER STOPPING FOR A TRAFFIC SIGNAL. WITHIN ABOUT 50 YARDS THE CAR CONTINUED TO ACCELERATE UP TO 4000 RPM. HE PULLED OFF TO A TURNING LANE AND HAD TO HOLD HIS FOOT ON THE BRAKE TO AVOID HITTING ANOTHER VEHICLE. FINALLY HE PUT THE CAR IN PARK. THE ENGINE DID NOT SLOW DOWN UNTIL HE PUT THE CAR BACK IN DRIVE. SINCE THEN THE ACCELERATOR HAS TAKEN CONTROL THREE DIFFERENT TIMES AT ABOUT 40 MPH. MOST RECENT INCIDENT WAS ON 4/18/2012, MILEAGE 36140. WE WERE RIDING HOME FROM CHURCH. MY BROTHER PRESSED THE ACCELERATOR TO ABOUT 45 MPH FROM A STOP SIGN INTERSECTION AND THE ENGINE REVVED UP TO 4000 RPM AGAIN. WE HAD TO PULL OFF THE ROAD, TURN THE ENGINE OFF AND ON 3 TIMES BEFORE IT WAS DRIVABLE.
