Get your codes read, it could be the accelerator pedal or something else causing forced idle mode. I've seen something like the exhaust back pressure sensor short out and cause a forced idle.

Could be the pedals throttle cable lacking in tension or broken, rule it out anyway

There isn't a cable. It's all electronic. The pedal is just a sensor
