Take it to AutoZone or Advanced Auto Parts and have them read the code for free . When you get the codes post them here.

perhaps you have the cruise control set or it does not shut off when you tap the brake pedal?

might be a IAC problem, Idle Air Control, is this when you start up, or driving vehicle, state when this happens or what you are doing
