    T3PA Pedal set add on Accelerator issue

    I race with the Thrustmaster TX RW Leather Edition with T3PA Pedal set add on (XBOX One/PC), which I purchased in April 2019.
    My T3PA accelerator pedal does not appear to be sending a smooth signal to Xbox as smooth acceleration is applied. In PCars2, the accelerator indicator shows an erratic band instead of a gradually accelerating band. The speedometer also gives wildly fluctuating speed readings. This is also affecting the engine sound, as car's motor now sounds choppy and inconsistent. If I push accelerator to full extension, the car accelerates at indeterminate speed and accelerator indicator shows extremely rapid fluctuations. RPMs are unreadable and the "Red-Yellow-Green" shift lights are not registering. This happened in yesterday's race session, and grew progressively worse in practice session today, 9-05-19.
    I Closed PCars2. Restarted Xbox. Same condition. Changed Cars. Same condition. Changed games, (Forza, Assito Corsa) effectively same condition.
    I'm hoping there is a simple fix somebody out there can provide or some guidance as to what I can try to resolve the situation.
    Kind regards

    Maybe it needs cleaning?

    I will give this a shot. Yikes, You'd think such a critical/sensitive bit of kit would be better protected.

    I don't think that cleaning will help, but you can give it a chance. It won't harm.

    I had to clean the potentiometers every six to eight months with my old G920 pedal set due to dust and cat fur ingress so I am sure it is worth trying.
    Many pedals with potentiometers are prone to this and the issue has been reported and fixed here on numerous occasions. More expensive pedal sets often use hall effect sensors to a kid this issue.
    A small squirt of contact cleaner into the potentiometer can work wonders.
