"Service Throttle" warning - I made it appear 3 times.

Well, at least I think so. I have an occasional need to use both feet for brake and throttle. By pressing both pedals simultaneously I've noticed that I can make the Service Throttle warning appear, along with a few moments of reduced power, with a subsequent full recovery. I've noted to not do that any more.

I did a quick search and didnt find any other posts about this so I thought I would post and see if anyone knows of any long-term effects or other issues. If not, then maybe this is informative for someone that inadvertantly gets the warning and might not know why.

FWIW - My BMW would do more or less the same thing...but it didnt recover without a visit to the dealer or at least a code scanner reset.

Tie your left foot to the door handle and learn to drive with one foot.

If you like to drive with two feet, I think the Green Engineering tune lets you use both feet without this problem. Might check with them to see.

I had the same problem in FL last year, It Died and I had to roll of the side of the road to restart it. The Eco D does not like being driven with both feet... Luckily it restarted with no ill effects but it freaked me out a little....

It actually took me til the third time to realize what was causing it. Freaked me out the first two times...was afraid of a CEL or worse.

Glad to know this is a known thing...

I typically dont drive with two feet, just sometimes.

Yep can't two-foot with the stock tune, but the GDE tune does allow it.

Re: "Service Throttle" warning - I made it appear 3 times.

I don't understand why you need to drive with 2 feet, unless it's a manual transmission. And driving behind someone who does it isn't much fun either - with the brake lights on all the time, there's no warning that they're braking until you notice that you're closing in on them.
(Just my opinion.)

Re: "Service Throttle" warning - I made it appear 3 times.

Wondering if this anomaly is fallout of changes implemented in response to "unintended acceleration" debacles? It would be interesting to know how gassers react.

Re: "Service Throttle" warning - I made it appear 3 times.

I drive with two feet and run into this often. As soon as you lift both feet it goes back to normal but I hate the fact it cuts throttle entirely when it happens.

Driving with two feet doesn't mean you drag your foot on the brake all the time. It means that you have good feel in your left foot (versus only know how to stomp a clutch). It works where you are trying to spool up the engine to make a cut across two lanes of traffic (a big worry where I live). Those who have driven a go kart - the brake is on the left and makes sense. Unfortunately most cars don't put in a brake pedal that is comfortable for most drivers and requires awkward foot position to do so.

Agree completely. I don't two-foot much but its handy when necessary, and in traffic i'm 100% sure my braking reaction time is better. Every race car driver in the world can't be wrong...
