Thrustmaster T500 RS T3PA Pro pedal accelerator pedal issue

Discussion in 'Sim Racing Hardware' started by BCG_R4MB0M0NK3Y, Feb 28, 2016.

  1. Hi Guys,

    I got a new T500-RS wheel approximately 2 weeks ago and for the last 3 days I have noticed that the gas pedal only registers about 10% of the overall throttle travel (the 1st 10% that is) has anyone else come across this issue? the firmware is current V43 and so is the firmware of the TH8A gear box.

    *I have tried removing and re-installing the drivers/TM software
    *Tried reapplying the firmware
    *Tried different USB ports (On the PC that is front/back) USB 2 & 3
    *Tried unplugging everything restarting PC and plugging power/pedal cables back in

    I have made a quick video you can see the throttle pedal issue on this short video


    I hope someone can help me, this is doing my nut in now LOL

    I have contact TM support just waiting for a reply from their CS department.

    Cheers guys
  2. DSview only shows the throttle as using just over 2% with pedal fully pressed

  3. yes, they are safe to use.
    In DIview go over your gas pedal view and right click your mouse.
    The menu will open->Click open Calibration->click "Restore defaults" (my values are;min0, center 512. max 1023)
    Do the "restore" for rest of the settings.
    It could be hardware problem so this dont do anything to fix that. It worth testing though.
  4. still the same im afraid Jari
