Q: Accelerator cable came off

asked by on January 25, 2016

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.
