VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL - ACCELERATOR PEDAL
03/01/1997
 Once the engine has warmed up with the air conditioning compressor off, cruise control off and driving with the engine rpm between 1500-2000 rpm(regardless of which gear is selected)and you let your foot off the accelerator pedal the engine remains at the rpm it was at when you let off the accelerator pedal. the accelerator pedal is returning completely up and i inspected the truck per nhtsa campaign id # 96v057000 and the pedal is not sticking. i have taken it in to the dealer once and they could not find a fault codes on the computer but they reset the computer anyway and the problem went away for a few days and then got progressively worse again. a felloew coworker has a 1997 version of the same truck and has the same problem. it is very dangerous in heavy traffic when you let off the accelerator expecting the vehicle to slow down, but it does not! *ak
