Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

It sounds as if you're describing an electronic throttle control warning light, which would go along with the symptoms you're having. You could have a throttle body or wiring issue, a vacuum leak or intake restriction, or the engine controller may be perceiving an intake restriction or vacuum leak due to an incorrect sensor signal.

The first step in diagnosing the problem will be to use a scan tool or code reader to see what fault codes are setting and then testing can be done from there. Have you had a chance to check for fault codes?
