Toyota Yaris: If you cannot increase engine speed - In case of an emergency - Toyota Yaris XP90 2005–2010 Owner's ManualToyota Yaris: If you cannot increase engine speed

If engine speed does not increase when the accelerator pedal is depressed, there may be a problem somewhere in the electronic throttle control system.

At this time, vibration may occur. However, if you depress the accelerator pedal more firmly and slowly, you can drive your vehicle at low speeds. Have your vehicle checked by your Toyota dealer as soon as possible.

Even if the abnormality of the electronic throttle control system is corrected during low speed driving, the system may not be recovered until the engine is stopped and the ignition key is turned to “ACC” or “LOCK” position.

CAUTION.

Be especially careful to prevent erroneous pedal operation.
