ABSTRACT:
An accelerator pedal assembly for an automotive vehicle includes a pedal member pivotably attached to the floor area of the vehicle and a combination pedal travel limiter and position indicating unit mounted above the pedal member. The combination unit includes a rotary position indicator having a driveshaft extending therefrom to a roller follower, which is mounted upon the driveshaft and which tracks movement of the pedal member. The driveshaft and follower are mounted in a bracket which has integral idle and wide-open throttle stops incorporated therein, such that over-travel of the pedal member will not cause over-travel of the rotary position indicator.
