problem #1

Mar 031999


  • miles
Requires a shift into 'neutral' to disengage maximum throttle during a passing manuver. Seems to be torque related. Occurs independent of 'cruise control' being on or off. Applying brakes or turning curise to off does not release throttle. Vehical has been back to dealer who sold vehicle and accessory at least twice. Cruise control has been replaced but problem recurs.
