anyone ever have the throttle stick on your truck?

Today I was cruising down the road and I noticed the little wrench light come on in the dash. I checked the code on the A2 and it said P2139 throttle position sensor voltage.... So I cleared the code drove a few more miles I noticed when I let off from the accelarator that my truck was not decelerating. I hit the brakes that didnt do anything, so I pushed the accelerator down still nothing throttle was stuck. I put the truck in neutral as I was cruising down the road, the engine pegged to 4K on the tach. I was pissed at this point so I put the truck back in Drive and quickly pulled into a parking lot and put it in neutral, and shut the truck off. If I wouldnt of had plans for the night I would have let it sit there, and pray that it would blow up. I started the truck back up and it was fine. I dont know if anyone has had an issue like this but its one more coal stoaking the fire for how much I really think this truck is a PO:censord:

I think I would have to get it to the dealer or trusty mechanic and have it checked out. I also thought that if the sensor craps out it was supposed to default to idle speed.

Glad you actually thought about turning off the key - can't tell you how many times i've heard of people crashing into someone w/o either throwing their trans into neutral or shutting off the key.... good luck on getting it fixed.

Make sure you check your floor mat.. It can cause the throttle to hang up.. I found that out the hard way.. That is why ford puts that hook in the carpet to keep the mat in place.

Looking to buy again

I have to ask what dealer are you going to for repairs. I don't live far from you, so I just want to make sure I don't go to that dealer.

You have had more problems with that truck then anyone I know.

I went to Monroe Friendly ford. Yeah Im not to happy overall with this truck. Im actually going to take the Edge off from the truck here in the next week or so and just drive it stock. I hate to say it but if things dont straighten up soon she will be up for sale.

Ok then I know not to take my truck there for anything.

Although I do most of my repairs myself. I am not sure but I think when you replace the throttle switch you have to set the resistance on it.

BINGO!!
Had this happen to me.
Strange as it sounds I've ran that scenario through my head, what if my accelerator gets stuck. I floored it and was going pretty fast when I let off completely but it stayed stuck to the floor. So I immediately turned the ignition off and coasted into a parking lot. Turning will require a bit of strength with no power steering.

My floor mat had wedged itself against the pedal. Actually it was the rubber mat I have in the truck to protect my king ranch mats.
