Hi wondered if I could get some advice I have recently bought a used Dacia Duster comfort dci comfort 2019. Was fine for a couple of weeks but the other day was driving on an A road 60 mph when the accelerator left my foot and slammed into the floor and began to accelerate gradually. It was literally flat to the floor. Cruise control was not on. I had to brake but it was a little resistant but eventually reduced speed after a minute or so the accelerator pedal popped back up. 馃 10 mi s later did it again going up a hill at 30 mph 馃槼 luckily nothing was in front. I checked the mats in the car not them. Any advice ?? Really don't want to go back in it now.

The spring is inside the sensor mechanism assy black box mounted w/ 3 nuts & the wiring harness connector is on top.
Check the floor mat & carpet. Kneel on the ground & inspect that area w/ a torch. Test the pedal w/ your hand - engine off & then on.

PS: Just noticed the thread started on Jan 14, 2022. AHart can tell us how the story ended!

Not at all! God bless him! It must have got sorted out. Was just curious.

Sounded like the uncontrolled acceleration of Lexus cars some years ago in USA w/ several accidents & few deaths. Toyota then blamed it on the thick carpets & added shims in the gas pedal pivot! They had to settle claims.

Rubber floor mats will do this to, if they inch forward they will grab the back of the peddle, Im always pulling my mat back when Im driving, it also affects gear changes to and could be the reason for crunchy gear changes in many cases.
