Ok

Since you don't have any lights coming on it is possible it's the transmission and it's something simple like low transmission fluid. I would start by checking that.

Maybe have a transmission service done to see if it helps.

I have seen the throttle position sensor cause this type of problem, but you need a scan tool that can see the input from the TPS to watch and see if it's the problem.

I think the place to start here is with a transmission service since you don't have any lights on.
