Toyota finds fix for gas pedals; update due Friday

Toyota Motor Corp. says it has figured out how to fix a problem with sticking accelerator pedals and will update employees with details.

The company said in an e-mail to workers Thursday night that it presented a remedy to federal regulators.

The e-mail obtained by The Associated Press says that plans are being developed on a variety of fronts.

The company says it will update workers on Friday. The company says its engineers are working around the clock to fix the problem in eight of its models, including the top-selling Camry midsize sedan.

Toyota says accelerators rarely stick. But earlier this week the company halted sales and production of the models. It has recalled at least 2.4 million cars and trucks in the U.S., Europe and China because of the problem.
