Icon2 Gas Pedal Not working... HELP ASAP!!!!!

URGH!

I want to set my car on fire....

I have a 2000 Honda Civic Si. I have replaced nearly every freaking piece on this evil car.

I was driving home from a concert tonight... car was running normally... and then all of a sudden the Gas Pedal just gives out. I was able to coast it into a parking lot. There is no response to the pedal. You press down on it and it just goes straight to the floor.

I don't know if the cable went out? Or if this is an easy fix or if I have to spend even more money on this evil beast.

Please let me know ASAP. My cell phone of course died prior to this happening and I was just lucky enough to get to walk back to my parents home (which I guess I'm lucky it was only a couple miles away). URGH. Help!!!!!

Thank you!!!!!

When you press the pedal down does anything move on the throttle body?

I dont know. I just left it in a parking lot and walked to my parents house.

I tried to push down on it while the car was still on and it made no response. like the pedal just went straight to the floor and didnt do anything

Didnt pop the hood or anything since it's dark outside.

Couple of different thing couldve happened, throttle cable either snapped came loose at the pedal or the throttle body itself, or the spring on the throttle body took a ****.

Seems like it would be a simple fix, not expensive at all i would guess

Does anyone know what size this cable is? Do I have to get a "Honda" cable or can I just go to Napa or Autozone and pick up a generic one? I haven't gone back to look at it quite yet, but luckily my daddy is here and said it should be easy....

Thanks guys!!!!! I was seriously wanting to cry last night. This car has been giving me nothing but problems this past year. -- Oh and last week, some dumbass punk kids decided to break in and steal random parts -- including the freaking SI logo.. GRRRR!

Looked at the car -- Yup, throttle cable is broken -- looks like from the pedal to the engine? Think I have to go to Honda to actually get the part - which of course are all closed on Sundays...

Still an easy fix???

Jeez. Take off the old cable. Installation is the reverse of removal.

not that hard to change... takes maybe 15 minutes out of your time

i hate it that girls think just cause theyre girls on the forum they will get anyone to do it for them when my gf wants something done to her teg i tell her to get into the FAQ's and do it so you try thesame..
