Vehicle idles and does not accelerate when the gas pedal is stepped on. Also, vehicle tends to decelerate often when it is traveling at various speeds on the road. Taken to the dealer for a total of 10 times, but the cause was still undetermined. The vehicle never ran right after the wiring on the steering was replaced. Cruise control or gas pedal does not work. Truck caught fire in the steering column. The vehicle engine shut off by itself and started back up by itself twice.
