Hi All,


I was driving my accord home the other day and the accelerator pedal decided to stop working. engine was still running fine and the pedal itself felt fine. No error lights, and i did a quick scan with the obd2 bluetooth device and no codes (but that's not 100% reliable).


After restarting the car the pedal came back to life for around 10-15 seconds, then died again. i gave it around 20 seconds doing nothing and it came back to life again. same again down the road as i was getting to my house - let it roll and it came back to life after the same ish amount of time.


Accelerator pedal position sensor maybe? any other/better suggestions welcome, thanks :)

If the pedal just went dead then most likely the APPS yes. It normally comes with a temporary vsa and engine management light.
