Hi, Seems like your electric throttle is not working properly. You could have an issue with your throttle chamber or the link between the pedal and the throttle chamber. It could also be a sensor issue. Check this article: http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20090628172331AAH4h95 Is the gas pedal working when you're in park position?

sounds like it's in failsafe mode. could be any reason from a sensor to the gas pedal. scan it and get a code if it's in failsafe there will be codes.
