Q: Gas pedal won't work

The gas pedal on my jeep won't work.

Hello! I suspect that your vehicle has a broken throttle cable. One end of the cable connects to the gas pedal while the other end connects to the air inlet on the engine. The air inlet will open symmetrical to gas pedal depression. The cable is the only thing that controls gas pedal function so I suspect that the throttle cable is broken or really out of adjustment. I suggest having the vehicle inspected by an expert mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, to determine why your gas pedal does not work and replace the throttle cable if that proves to be broken.
