The PCM isn't an event recorder much beyond the last few moments of driving. The authorities can obtain data from moments before a crash but not hours after an "event".

Good to know. I wasn't sure.

While my initial reaction is driver error, how wet was the inside of your car? A drop of water could technically connect the circuit between the pedal and the receiver.

How dare you use common sense!
Haha! Maybe they made your car at a Toyota plant.

lol tell me how the throttle sticking is driver error????

It is winter here and the ground was wet outside (not raining, just wet). So when I entered my car 3-4 minute prior to this event my shoes were probably damp but not wet by any means. Plus, the throttle pedal hangs down. Unless I jumped in the car and started kicking my feet (which would have to be covered in snow/rain) how would the sensor (which I assume is at the top of the pedal, probably 6-8 inches above my foot) get wet?

this has happened to me before. I was getting on it on a small stretch where no one is around, i usually go hard through 2nd and 3rd and stop. well i went to stop and the throttle kept going, even with the clutch pulled in. So i killed it, restarted, and it kept going. It was the rubber mats over the gas peddle. I haven't and will not let that happen again cuz it was pretty scary.

Maybe it was caught and then slipped off? I will say some times while accelerating decently and releasing the gas peddle, it feels like it wants to continue to accelerate and i can swear the rpms keep increasing, but it stops. Don't know if it is just in my head or what. I would def. get it checked out though

Remember the Audi and Toyota fiascos? Those both boiled down to driver error
