Both deal with the accelerator pedal. Check for loose connection and debris blocking pedal travel.

You did not explain how to test acelerator voltage
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 5 months ago.

You test with volt/ohm meter and check the physical travel and be sure there is no obstruction under the pedal that will not let it come up all the way, mud or trash.
