My wife was driving our Odyssey yesterday approximately 55 mph when the accelerator “all of a sudden” stopped working. The engine was running, but the car would not move. Stranded in the middle of the highway, she turn the car off and back on. The accelerator worked long enough to drive another 8 miles. We changed cars and I started the Odyssey and backed out of the parking space and put transmission into drive. The accelerator was all the way down to the floor, but the car would not move. The engine was on, but was not revving with pressure on the gas pedal.
Hauled the Odyssey to the dealer. Technician started the car and pushed the gas pedal to the floor with no result…and then the car lunged forward “all of a sudden.” Technician and Service rep said “We have never seen this before.” They kept the Odyssey to check it out.
So, do they really know what’s going on and just aren’t telling me? Has anyone else experienced this issue? Any clues?
