Update: Toyota disputes electronics problems

MADISON (WKOW) -- Toyota is trying to shift blame away from its electronics system as investigators try to find out what caused the braking problems responsible for the 8-million-car recall.

The automaker plans an event Monday in which it will seek to debunk a critic who claims faulty gas pedals did not cause the sudden acceleration.

Toyota will aim to duplicate the scenario created by the critic, an Illinois professor who told Congress last week that he was able to recreate sudden acceleration in a Toyota vehicle by manipulating its electronics.

Toyota says it will show the malfunctions he produced "are completely unrealistic under real-world conditions and can easily be reproduced on a wide range of vehicles made by other manufacturers."

WKOW will follow the developments and report back what the recreation reveals.
