ok, thanks.
the light indicates a problem with the fly by wire system. this is hoe the accelerator works without any cables. it most likely has set a code in the pcm for the area of failure. it could be a failed throttle body, accelerator pedal sensor or wiring. the code will leak us to the area of failure.
you can have the code checked for free from a parts store. then we can narrow down the are of failure.
also, call your dealer and give them your vin and check and see if there is any warranty left on the vehicle. it may be covered under warranty
