Fed looking at Toyota electronics as source of unintended acceleration defects

It was reported yesterday that the U.S. Department of Transportation was satisfied with Toyota’s plan to address their recall of 2.3 million vehicles facing unintended acceleration issues after the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reviewed the Japanese automaker’s plan.
Well, you can scratch that. Late last night, federal investigators began looking into whether the problem with Toyota’s gas pedal recall goes beyond the fix announced by the automaker on Monday. The NHTSA is now looking to see if the problem lies within a Toyota vehicle’s electrical system.
The investigation into the electrical system was confirmed by an anonymous agency. Officials say that the agency is looking into the possibility of electromagnetic interference that could cause Toyota’s electronic throttle control systems to malfunction.

The NHTSA said it has found no evidence to support an electronic malfunction in their previous tests.
Guess Steve Wozniak had a point after all.
