Engine Brake and Throttle sensor

Engine Brake and Throttle sensor

For those who responded to my various posts I am pleased to report a finite solution.... I hope says he tempting fate!

After replacing, Hi off Lo switch, relay, removing brakeswitch.com box, replacing some battery connections, harness inside rocker box for brake control, I finally homed in on the throttles sensor at the accelerator pedal. Lucky breaks pointed me at it or the harness. After much thought and feedback from the sensor manufacturer I replaced the sensor and had a harness on standby. A 40 mile test proved positive but I still really wanted a 100 mile plus trip without issue. BUT, I built a good rapport with the UK distributor of these sensors and he agreed to put the old unit to a severe test. Well he telephoned this morning, the sensor was shot! The idle switch was failing or failed and there were other symptoms developing like a flat spot in the acceleration curve. So it was about to totally die! I feel more confident with my opening gambit... maybe?
