Stuck Gas Pedal

A gas pedal can get stuck for a variety of reasons. These include problems with linkage, cables or even floormats and flipflops.

If your gas pedal gets stuck while you're driving:

  • Shift into neutral
  • Don't turn the engine off while you are moving unless you no longer need to steer the vehicle.
  • Keep a look out for traffic and apply your brakes.
  • Look for a way to drive the car safely off the road.
  • Warn other drivers by flashing your emergency lights.


Sometimes it's possible to free the stuck pedal by tapping it or removing the obstruction. If you can get your foot under it, lift it up to free it.
