no this occurred when I was driving home
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
are you still there?

usually when this happens the computer could not read the throttle body or the gas pedal correctly

most of the time the electrical connector at the throttle body is bad or the throttle body itself is bad

knowing the code set will say if its the throttle body or the gas pedal

but once that is fixed all your issues will be corrected
