    accelerator issues

    I have a 99 DeVille thats likes to accelerate without my foot on the accelerator. RPM over 3,000. I had to shut down the car. once I started it back it was back to normal. Sometimes I can kick it down. I have disconected the cruse control. and replaced the throtle control unit ($350.00) Still a problem. I can drive for days and it runs fine.
    I pulled the codes
    pmc 1654
    tcs c 1225 or 1225

    Your C1225 is the first code to address.

    C1225 - Left Front Excessive Wheel Speed Variation

    Either a nasty dirty hub wheel speed sensor connector OR a failing wheel speed sensor which requires hub replacement to repair.

    Clean the TB first.

    This happened long ago in my Deville before I took over the ownership. It received no TB cleaning since 1999. I cleaned the TB and it never happened again. Now I clean mine once in every year.

    Clean the TB and check/lube the throttle cable.

    Also, make sure the carpeting (or residue from carpet or shoes) is not interfering with the pedal. Pedal should be nice and free, with no sticking at all.

    Lube attracts and holds dirt. I don't believe the throttle cables are intended to be lubed.
