Hello, the cable would either be broken or unhooked - or an issue with the throttle body-- I would check the throttle body under hood where cable attaches and see if problem is there

Is a broken, detached cable the only thing to make the pedal lay flat on the floorboards? how hard is it to replace the cable if it’s broken
Chrysler Mechanic: garrtim, service manager replied 3 months ago

yes-- or the throttle body under hood could be broken/stuck -- most of the time I see just a cable issue-- as far as changing it is a moderate repair -- cable runs through fire wall then routed to the throttle body -- requires laying under dash to access the cable where it connects to pedal -- I WOULD INSPECT CABLE ATTACHMENT AT BOTH ENDS BEFORE DOING ANYTHING I have also seen a floor mat stuck under pedal/cable cause this

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
