Truck died in middle of road, truck would not start.son towed truck out of road to parking lot. Truck, started again ran 3 days. Pulled out of parking lot, the truck accelerated out of controlled hit brakes a few times and truck died again in middle of road. Started again, truck moved 10 feet and died. Tipm (totally integrated power module ) has failed. Unexpected acceleration scared me considerably. Less experienced driver or my wife would have got scared and crashed.

The vehicle was taken to the dealer for repairs. The contact stated he had experienced the failure previously and had an exhaust flush performed on the vehicle to correct the failure but to no avail. The dealer advised the contact not to allow the vehicle to idle to prevent the failure.
