I have a 2005 el model and getting an 8 error code. Does anyone know where I can get one and the price? Maybe part# any help will be greatly thankful for.
Is the floor mat under the pedal? Is pedal returning all the way?
I recently posted how to check it.
Guess I didn’t post it on this forum.

on the top of the motor controller (under the

resistance between pins 9 and 7. When the
accelerator pedal is in the UP position, the
ohmmeter should read approximately 0
ohms. Push the accelerator pedal down; the
resistance between pins 9 and 7 should
gradually increase. When the accelerato
pedal is completely down, the resistance
should reach a maximum of approximately
2500 ohms. If the resistance does not vary
as described, replace the accelerator pedal.
If the resistance is a constant very low
resistance (possible short circuit) or
ant high resistance (open circuit),
there could be a problem with the wiring
harness between the motor controller and
the accelerator pedal module or there could
be a faulty accelerator pedal.

resistance between these two pins should
remain approximately 2500 ohms
regardless of the position of the accelerator
pedal. If the resistance is very high, there is
probably a broken wire between the motor
controller connector and accelerator pedal,
or could be a faulty accelerator pedal.
There isnt much to the inside of these things. Just resistance/contact strips and wipers. Usually a good cleaning brings them back.
Yes I checked all that I think its the switch
The -8 code is the voltage from pot.
Just installed a new accelerator today! After replacing many parts looking for reason for continually losing speed until nothing at all. I paid $439.99 or thereabout. Bought on line from a resource Beck Chrysler Dodge Jeep, Palatka, FL (386)328-8863
Problem solved…drives like a new one.
Save the old one.
Some of us here recycle.
