A Boston mechanic tells of his experiences with sudden acceleration. He simulates sudden acceleration just like Sam Sero. He shows that when a wire in the cruise control is manipulated, the gas pedal moves on its own, and the engine goes to wide open throttle (WOT).
More people tell of their sudden acceleration stories. A Ford dealership mechanic tells how he wrote to Ford asking about sudden acceleration, and Ford responded that he should check the wiring in the cruise control. The mechanic explains that he found a cruise control unit from a car that experienced sudden acceleration in which two wires were in contact with each other.
Ford's own investigations show they knew of all the possible causes of sudden acceleration.
