    So here’s a new one. 2019.36.2.1 AP1 last few days has popped up a message “accelerator pressed, cruise will not brake”, which I’m used to seeing if I actually accelerate on autopilot, but this time I’m not pressing either pedal. The first time it happened, I instinctively pressed the accelerator and let off to see if it would go away. It stayed on a few seconds then went away. The second time I let it go ready to see what it would do, it stayed on a few seconds and went away. It goes away immediately if I touch the brake, and it doesn’t appear to actually accelerate. Anyone else see this?

    This is pretty concerning. I wonder if it also means that it's not going to react to a vehicle in front of you.

    I'd schedule it for service, maybe they can check the logs to see what is triggering it. You never know what this may cause the vehicle to do in another situation.

    I wonder if the accelerator pedal spring has gotten weak and so it doesn't stay 100% returned all the time...

    Did you do a bug report when you noticed the message?

    Nope. I didn't even think about it. Was going to see if it happens again then report it and call in for a service appt. It's not easy since the closest service center is 2 hours away.

    Definitely do a bug report next time as soon as possible. Might make it easier for Tesla to address it sooner.
