Can you rev the engine at the throttle body? Is the cable connected between the accellerator and the throttle body lever? Or, if thats ok, does it have a throttle position sensor code stored? You would need to read your codes at your OBD II connector using a reader from the parts store perhaps?

You can also google pinpont tests at the throttle position sensor, and use a DVOM. Inspect the connector and connector and sensor pins.
