Happened bout month back and Machanic said it was accelerator control sensor replaced it and worked fine till now which tells me might not have been total problem
Expert:  Dan replied 1 year ago.

The APP sensor is common to cause this problem, it sounds like the new part may have failed. There is no ground that would cause this issue and if it was wiring I think problem would be more intermittent. I'd recommend inspecting wire around sensor and unplugging/replugging a few times in case there is a bad connection otherwise I'd replace the sensor again. Without replacing sensor next step would be to test the wiring. Let me know if you have more questions, thanks.
