Hello all

I was on my way home from the store and the truck started running a bit funny like it was not getting fuel. then a short time later the accelerator pedal stopped working all together. The truck was still running fine just no pedal. Pulled over and shut it off,turned it back on and it worked but not normal. it seems like the truck is going from 1st to 3rd. Got home and checked codes. i got a 112 and 221. Do you think I need a new pedal assembly?

Thank you for any help.

Thank you Maryland.
I hope someone can help. I ordered a new pedal assembly tonight in hopes that is the problem. Need the truck for work this week.

Thank you all again..

Most of the time it is the idle validation switch on the assembly that goes bad. If you look on the pedal assembly it is the switch that has 2 wires going to it. I believe it is "normally open" and when you press the throttle it closes and the pot takes over for fueling.

Thanks greenskeeper.
So do you think its the validation switch or the pedal? I ordered a new pedal assembly. I hope the switch and pot are all included.

thank you
