Owners of Ford and Mercury vehicles equipped with an Electronic Throttle Body (ETB) complain of o sudden surges, dangerous stalls, and being sent into “limp home mode” Owners with problems may be entitled to compensation.
What is “Limp Home” Mode?
Back in the day, there was a cable connecting the accelerator pedal to the throttle. If that cable snapped, well, you were up a certain creek without a paddle. Most systems are controlled by some sort of computer, including the electronic throttle body (ETB) (sometimes called an electronic throttle control (ETC)). The ETB uses data from sensors to control the position of the throttle valve, which in turn manages the amount of air entering the engine.
