Q: Accelerator cable came off

asked by on

The accelerator cable came off the gas pedal.

It sounds like the throttle cable has broke and needs to be replaced. I would have a certified technician come out and see if they can get it back on or, if it is in fact broken, have the throttle cable replaced.
