My 2006 ford five hundred gas throttle seems to get stuck when at a stand still. my foot is on the brake. it acts if it will move forward and does often. what could the problem be?

Check this out: the auto trans has a servo pack in it, this controls the trans at stop to kick out of gear and not try to pust or continue to drive forward. This is hard to explain to you i have done this procedure many times, the servo pack controls the trans to kick up and down between gears and when you come to a stop it also controls the trans that you are at idle, stand still, if the car wants to move forward that is most likely the problem. This is a very hard part to replace, if you haven't done somthing like this before, take it to a trans shop, not a general mechanic shop.

4wd light flashes and have replaced the front actuator switch and the encoder(transfer case motor) and nothing has changed. it sounds like it wants to kick in but never fully engages. I have had people on...

after looking at the schematics for this vehicle, I can say with great certainty that you might have something wrong in your front axle on a straight axle model that wont let the servo engage the front axle. Now if you have independant front suspension, then where the servo motor goes into the transfer case could be the problem. pull the servo motor from the case/axle and look at the engaging mechanism. You are looking for worn parts that could cause binding or broken parts. This servo motor gets its command voltage from the ecm. The signal for the ecm generates from the transmission and your in cab switch. If you can hear the motor trying to engage, then all the other factors are working up to the motor arm. The light is just a by product of the ecm trying to engage the front axle
