WHAT TO DO IF YOUR GAS PEDAL STICKS

  • Tap the gas pedal to try to unstick the throttle linkage.
  • Hook your toe under the pedal to try and free it.
  • Shift to neutral and apply firm pressure to the brakes without locking the wheels.
  • Find a safe place to move the vehicle completely off the road.
  • If your automobile has power steering or a locking steering wheel, do not turn off the ignition or you will lose either your power steering, or the ability to steer.
  • Have your vehicle checked with a mechanic as soon as possible.
