This is the most bullshit stuff, I have ever encountered. I am calling Paypal you Guys needed to get your act together.

I am sorry for your frustration. I need to ask questions in order to better assist you. With that being said, please go to the vehicle and open the hood, then open the fuse panel. On the fuse panel there is a label that tells you where the fuses are. Locate and remove the fuse labeled ETCS. Examine the fuse for being blown. This fuse is for the throttle motor. If this fuse is bad, there is no power to the throttle motor, and, because of no power, the throttle will not energize. The throttle motor is what causes the engine to accelerate.
