The '95 century is not "drive by wire" it has mechanical linkage. Must have come off or broken. I'll see if I can find a pic

One end of the cable is on the pedal or a bar moved by the pedal. The other end is on a plastic cam attached to the throttle body. Open the hood and see if the cable is still attached. It may have come loose if it didn't break.

Should have went to Domino's, never woulda happened
