Icon5 (auto-acceleration) .. throttle cable loose.. and cruise control doesnt work

so i was driving my lude down the freeway awhile back, and i dont kno if i was trippin balls or somethin, but i felt the car accelerating by itself not a lot but low key i got kinda scared so when i got home i popped the hood and noticed my throttle cable had some slack so i tightened it all the way. now my cruise control button doesnt light up or engage.. and the throttle response kinda sucks now too.
luckily i never felt it auto-accelerate again. but has anyone else had this problem before?

When I had that problem, I just tightened the throttle cable just enough, then I'd spray some throttle cleaner because it wasn't as responsive as it should of been.. As for the cruise control, I've never used it and mine never seems to work, and I don't care. Good luck finding your solution!
