How often do you have to hit the IVS, every time you let off the throttle and then back on? Or just the first time each start up? Or are you making it a non-momentary switch?

another cure

Fyi gents, I replaced my old dead battery with a new optima red top 34 and recharged my older optima back to good as new. Problem completely went away.

So if you're having this APP/IVS problem, a good first place to start would be pulling your batteries and load testing them. Apparently normal operation with just one unhealthy battery will Drop system voltage or sensor output sufficiently for the system to create these same problems we are seeing with the APP sensor and IVS issues.

You just start the truck. And click it one time. That's all. Other guys were saying that if something were to go haywire with the TPS the truck could take off. But I haven't had a single problem. And if that were to happen all is have to do is click the switch and hold it. Or put it in neutral ANd kill it

It's amazing to me how many people don't think of this. kind of like the "runaway" Prius a few years ago....whatever...ever heard of neutral?

On another note, I have had mine off the pedal for a year now. Best mod ever next to E-Fuel.

I'd just remove it. I tried the tab bend thingy and had to do it a few times to get it good, but it was never perfect. I finally just gave up and took it off and then relocated it under the dash. It's good anti-theft and the driveability was like a new truck.

I hear ya.. I dunno.. I think I'd like to try and bend the tab first.. The thing is I have no idea what it looks like.. Can someone post a pic of the said "tab"?

Its the tab in the middle of the pedal assembly. It is connected to a switch with a white button.

An even better solution is to convert over to the SD accelerator pedal. Action is so smooth and not having the IVS click(that is super loud) is amazing.

Is there a write up on this? I thought not having the IVS was slightly dangerous?

As far as I know I'm the only one to have ever done it.

They have an internal IVS.

I would like to know as well. I had no idea the SD pedal would work. Do tell.
