Our solution for driving without the use of the right leg is to install a second accelerator pedal identical to the original one left from the brake pedal.
This adaptation can be installed in any vehicle with an original electronic accelerator pedal (most vehicles built after 2007).
No handling or diplacing of any part is necessary to switch between the original and the left foot accelerator pedal.
A green lighted switch installed on the dashboard enables the driver to select the left foot accelerator pedal during 10 seconds after the start of the engine.
The use of an identical original pedal for the left foot accelerator pedal, provides the same comfort as the original pedal.
For years left foot accelerator pedals were designed using mechanical solutions.
It was always necessary to move or remove mechanical parts to be able to use either the left or the original accelerator pedal.
Now the push of a button is all it takes to select the left foot accelerator pedal right after the start of the engine.
This avoids any confusion for a driver who can use his right foot and who would use the vehicle.
“I had a left side gas pedal installed in my 2013 Toyoya Tacoma. Installation was fantastic, the technician was very knowledgeable and went above and beyond to meet some requests I had.
I believed in this product so much that I drove from Halifax, Nova Scotia in Canada to Tampa, Florida to have it installed.
No regrets, it works every time. The craftsman ship beats anything locally.
I only wish they had a closer location for installations in future vehicles.
Top quality - Top notch service”

The electronic left foot accelerator pedal is identical to the original accelerator pedal.
It therefore fits esthetically in the car's interior.
The lighted pushbutton is installed on the dashboard to be ergonomically easy to reach but also not too noticeable.
At each engine start the original accelerator pedal on the right is always functional.
A green lighted pushbutton installed on the dashboard flashes for 10 seconds indicating that a selection of the left foot accelerator pedal is possible.
Making the selection for the left foot accelerator pedal leaves the pushbutton on and the original accelerator pedal is deactivated.
Both accelerator pedals are never active at the same time.
In the absence of a selection, the pushbutton stops flashing after 10 seconds and turns off and the original accelerator pedal remains active.
No further selection is possible before the next start of the engine.
At the start of the engine, the green lighted button installed on the dashbaord flashes for 10 seconds.
During that time if the driver pushes on the button, the light will stay on and the left foot accelerator pedal will become active.
The right pedal will be deactivated.
If during the 10 seconds the button is not pushed, the light will turn off and the original accelerator pedal will remain active.
For safety reason the selection will not be possible until the engine is restarted.
The electronic left foot accelerator was tested for electromagnetic compatibility in an anechoic chamber and has been found to be in compliance with the European directive 95/54 EC for electromagnetic compatibility.
