Will disconnecting the Speed Control Actuator prevent acceleration without pushing on the gas pedal?
1989 Toyota Camry LE V6. Pulling into a parking space my car suddenly
accelerated to full speed, brakes would not hold it, ran into a tree, still
running fast, put it in reverse, backed across parking lot and hit another car.
The car then stopped going fast and went back to idle speed.. I was going
very slow, did not hit accelerator just started going fast on it own. If I
disconnect the Cruise Control (Speed Control Actuator) will that prevent this
from ever happening again.
I think you should have this issue evaluated by a competent mechanic. Huge safety issue here. Good luck.
I had a Toyota Dealer look at it and they could not find anything wrong. My wife will not drive it anymore until I can tell her it won;'t happen again so I was wondering If I disconnect the Cruise Control Actuator will that prevent this from ever happening again. I was looking it over and it seems to me the only was that the this could happen is if the SCA had a bleep and pulled on the acceleration cable, so if I just disconnect it then it shouldn't happen. What do you think???
Why would you want to repair such an old car that is probably a complete wreck?
Is it possible that the floor mat has moved and is hung up and catching the gas pedal? DC the Cruise Control???....Cannot comment.
Col......did you ever resolve the issue with this vdhicle?
