5.2L with cruise control, son had cruise on but when he hit the brake, the engine went into wide-open and he had to ride the brakes to get it home. Can't find a fuse for the cruise control, but the light's not on. Had him try and put it into reverse but wheels still spinning and engine running wide open. Linkage not bound up, throttle is closed. Cannot get the engine to slow down. Suspect a sensor (TPS) or the PCM. Other ideas?

If the throttle plate is closed then air must be getting in through the ISC idle speed controler. Mount on throttle body has wires pluged to it.
Remove see if the pental is retracted.

Is your check engine light on? If yes turn the key from off to on three times, on the fourth one leave it in the on position, the codes will display on the odometer, write em down and post em.
