The car alarm would went off intermittently during inclement condition. Dashboard/instrument panel lights remained on while the vehicle was turned off. Also, speedometer needle would continuously move back and forth while the vehicle was turned off. Vehicle had been to the dealer on 9 separate occasions, but the problems recurred.

While sitting at a stop light vehicle suddenly accelerated, causing a three car collision. Consumer had foot on the brakes, and vehicle revved up to 60-70 mph. Vehicle was towed to the dealer, who told consumer that some kind of pin got stuck, causing the vehicle to accelerate to 1000 rpms. When consumer took vehicle to dealer for regular maintenance, and told the mechanic about certain problems/concerns. They put the vehicle on the diagnostic machine, but nothing was found to be wrong.
