    clean out the junk that is around the gas pedal and then work the pedal back and forth with your hand with the engine off.. This should solve the problem.... if it doesn't than the cable that goes from the accelerator to the fuel injection system might need lubrication. If that doesn't resolve the problem, then the TPS is defective.... (TPS= Throttle Positioning Sensor). Don't drive the vehicle unless you can control the accelerator. If the accelerator is acting erratic, then have it towed to the dealership and let them repair it properly. We don't want to read about you mowing down a bunch of bushes or anything else because the accelerator was stuck....I repeat....... Have it towed..

    follow the above instructions.... unless you clean around the pedal and do the other things, I have no idea what else to suggest... You are going to get your hands dirty, but there is no other way. It is probably junk on the floor near and around the accelerator pedal... Check for a floor mat that has been pushed out of place..

    I had a car that did exactly that and it was a faulty throttle position sensor. It was an adventure getting it to my buddy who was a mechanic. By all means, do as Junkman has suggested.

    This may be a silly question, but since the car is relatively new, might this not be covered under warranty?

    That was one of the first things that this lady said.... </font><font color="blue" class="small">( I happened to pull in the drive at the same time as my wonderful husband and he noticed and well he wasn't happy because out of warrany. )</font>
    I think that there is a good chance that it is wet sand that has built up under the gas pedal and frozen. Seen that a lot in the past. My second thought is that a piece of linkage was splashed with slush and froze.... That is why I recommended that she manually work the pedal after cleaning out anything that might be obstructing it. I have found that on my wifes Explorer the carpet floor mats can get bunched up at the pedal and cause problems.
