Hello and welcome to JustAnswer! I apologize for the extended wait time you experienced, I've only just come online now and would like to assist you with your question.

If the engine starts and runs normally yet there is no response when pressing the throttle then you almost surely have an issue with the accelerator pedal position sensor signal. If that's the case then the problem may be with the sensor itself, a wiring problem, possibly an internal failure in the engine controller.

The first thing that will need to be done is use a scan tool or code reader to see what fault codes have st and then electrical testing can be done from there based on the findings.

My goal is to give you the best experience possible! I hope I have earned a 5 star rating! Please remember to rate my service by selecting the 5 stars at the top of the screen before you leave today. If you need more assistance, please use the reply box and let me know.
