Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

There are several things that will cause the electronic throttle light to come on. It could be directly related to the accelerator pedal position sensor or it could be any other failure which inhibits the engine controller from correctly controlling RPM.

The first step in diagnosing the problem is to use a scan tool to see what fault codes are setting and then testing can be done from there. Do you know what codes are setting?

I will let you know the codes shortly.
