You will need to have a test run of the electronic engine controls, if nothing shows test the Throttle Position sensor, closed throttle voltage should be around 1-1.25 volts, while the meter is hooked up and the key on tap on the sensor the volt reading should remain steady, open and close the throttle repeated times, it still should return to 1-1.25 volts closed throttle blade.

1998 Lincoln continental horn keeps going off unexpectedly


Nothing wrong with the car. It is getting a signal that mimics your remote's "panic" signal. Someone in your area may have an alarm with a remote controlled snooze. If the car was at fault the times would be random.

Question to Toyota Ed: How would you explain Toyotas with Sudden unintended acceleration in cars that have the Denso pedal in them? I have heard that Volkswagen Jettas are also using the Electronic...


Hello, Zman777.

According to the material provided by Toyota, the Denso pedal does not have the alleged acceleration issue.

Also, according to information that has been provided by Toyota, the alleged acceleration issues is being caused by two possibilities;

One is additional placement(s) of floor mats on top of the factory floor mat. The extra mats are not secured, and can move around the driver side footwell, and, in the worst case scenario, move on top of the accelerator pedal, and trap in into the 'applied' position. I myself have experienced this mat/entrapment issue during a road test.

The other possibility is that certain accelerator pedal mechanisms may mechanically stick in a partially depressed position or slowly return to the idle position. Over time, the internal mechanism in the accelerator pedal my become worn. As a result of this wear, combined with certain operating and enviromental conditions, friction in the mechanism may increase and intermittantly result in the accelerator pedal being hard to depress and/or slow to return or, in the worst case, stick in a partially open position, increasing the risk of a crash.

In short, according to what we have been provided, the issue is mechanical, not electrical. The modification that Toyota dealerships are performing rectify this issue, and, this modification has been approved by the NHTSA.

Nowhere has it been found that the vehicles with the alleged acceleration issue have 'accelerated' without warning, as in sitting still, and the car is suddenly going 100 mph. None.

What 'could' happen, if the pedal 'was' sticking, is, in my opinion, an 'Unexpected Non-Deceleration' condition.

If you were going 15 mph, and the alleged issue appeared, when you let off of the gas pedal, the car would continue at 15 mph, and NOT accelerate to 100 mph, as has been falsely mentioned in the media.

Regarding VW, sorry, I cannot comment on VW, or any of their systems, I am not a certified VW mechanic.

I hope that this info helps you out.

I recently experienced the same symptom with my '05 Murano and it was not a fuel problem. The dealer listed the cause as dry axle splines and replaced both front drive shaft assy's. Note that this was done as warranty with no cost incurred by me.
