Anyone had a problem with ShakeIt motor attached to back of T-LCM accelerator pedal?

Just fitted one. works fine but vibration is shutting down the accelerator pedal. Pedals need to be reset to bring it back to life. It's just the accelerator too.

Just trying to diagnose if it's a common issue or a one-off. The latter means I can dial down the feedback, relocate the ShakeIt Motor, or go in looking for a loose connection maybe. Seems odd if its hardware shutdown, if I'm the only person experiencing this issue.

I've got the pedals plugged directly into the PC, via USB. TM Calibration tool running and SimHub ShakeIt config screen up. Easy to see it freeze on the accelerator when I click the test button 2nd or 3rd test. Stops very quicky.

I have shake it motors on the back of my T-LCMs too and I am not seeing this issue at all…
Cool. Combined with the lack of responses, it would seem I'm alone with this issue, so it looks like I have a loose connection in the LCM's so I'll investigate that.

I'll update later if I find something, for anyone later with the same rare issue...

Can I ask - how did you fit it and what did you use? Thanks!
I used xbox 360 motors, and 25mm p clips, rubber lined, that bolt thru an eyelet.

I think i found the problem. Inside the pedals, the hall effect circuit board has a shield grounding prong that runs against the bottom of the pedal. This wasn't very hard pressed to the pedal - the tension was very soft.

I moved it a little, increasing the tension. Re-fitted the motors to 8mm MDF runners under the pedals, between the pedal base and the rig. Combination of relocating the motors (they were bolted to the back of the pedal faceplates in the spare holes) and ensuring the shield didn't vibrate away from the pedal, seems to have sorted it. About 10+ hours driving and not a single brown-out of the pedals.

Having the same issue, with the same setup.
Base shakers connected to the back up T-LCM pedals. Brake remains working, but throttle freezes up untill i disconnect and reconnect the USB.
I will take a look at the circuit board

Was about to emark on this pedal rumble mod on my t-lcm pedals myself - after reading all this I don't know now. Mm...

Not related, but I do know for 100% sure (on pro pedals) that if you use screws which are to long than the ones thrustmaster recommend when installing the screws underneath the pedal base when attaching to a pedal base then it can disturb the accelarator pedal and it will stop working until you remove the overly long offending screw. The screw underneath the throttle pedal area. Slightly off topic but someone else may read this and it will help them.
