Hj61 12ht auto HELP Please

Unread post by krobbie » December 22nd, 2014, 8:07 pm

Hi guys I have an issue with my 60

I was on the freeway and the auto box shuddered
Then the accelerator pedal went limp

I got tow trucked home, to find the cable at the pedal hanging out.

I followed the accelerator cable from the block and it goes into the auto box.

I can't follow the cable from the pedal.

Any idea what has happened? I'm stumped.

My repair manual doesn't have anything

Cheers

I reckon you have broken you accelerator cable - the one from the pedal to the fuel pump.

There will be one cable from fuel pump to the auto - that's the kickdown cable (and the one you have found), and another separate cable from the pedal to the fuel pump, which is the one you have snapped.

Pretty simple to follow, just get someone to pull the end that is at the pedal and look under the bonnet and you will see it moving. Maybe it just popped off the linkage.
