Re: Accelerator Cable Broken SIX Times

Check the engine earth strap - the engine may be trying to use the cable as an earth to the bodywork and the cable is overheating.
Also check all cable runs neat and in line with the pedal and throttle body . When the pedal is fully down there should still be some slack in the cable otherwise it will be strained.

At what point do they break?
