yes and no, the throttle is controlled by the computer. control is shut down for some reason. try the locks the security lockout thinks your stealing the car! if no luck, unhook the battery ground cable for 15 minutes or more to cause a hard reset on the brain! Now you see why GM let a lady run the show recently

What about the ignition switch or crank position sensor? This is a very dangerous car these days because it will die while driving at high speeds. They replaced the throttle body today, but that wasn't the problem.
