Loss of accelerator pedal pressure and consequent loss of power
1992 500SL. While driving at 70 mph the accelerator pedal suddenly went loose with a subsequest loss of power. Used cruise control to get me home. Pedal still allowed for very slow acceleration. Any ideas?
Sounds like your throttle body assembly is freaking out :) Usually needs replacement when any problems occur with it
Thanks Mike. I am having it checked out tomorrow.
Same loss of power would not drive more than 10mph. Sent out throttle actuator and came back, not the problem. Unit is OK. Don't know what else to try. Local dealer also has no solution. Scary to drive the car when it can decide not to cooperate and gets me another tow by AAA? HELP!!
