It's diesel too

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
