do or did you have the code read for the light???

it sounds like the fly by wire system for acceleration. everytime there is an issue you turn it off and restart and it resets itself. the usual failure is the throttle position sensor on the throttle body. it is very common. it needs to be confirmed by getting the code which you can get from a parts store for free and then that will help narrow the area of failure.
