It's something to do with your drive by wire system. Judging by all three codes that appeared it may be the module, or some type of interference between it all. All this technology B.S, if they would have just put a normal steel cable between your right foot and the throttle you wouldn't be having this problem.

Check to make sure your mass airflow sensor is plugged in
