Hi. You could have a problem with the accelerator cable, or the throttle position sensor. Have you tried to go under the hood and inspect where the throttle cable hooks up to the throttle body and inspected to make sure it is connected?

Hello, thanks for being patient, is the check engine light staying while the engine is running?

Expert:  Ted Ritter replied 8 months ago.

I'm pretty sure this has an electronic throttle control without a cable, check the fuse box under the hood near the battery, locate the fuse marked ETCS and put a new one in, let me know if this helped, thanks.
