I don't know what model or year it is but if the gas pedal doesn't seem to work it may be a blown fuse in the fuse box under the hood, check the fuse marked ETCS, also check for any other fuses that may be open, if you need more help I would need to know the year/model so I can diagnose this further.

No, you don't have to accept if I haven't given you an acceptable answer yet. This car uses an electronic throttle control system(ETCS)there is no physical connection between the accellerator pedal and the throttle body, is the ETCS fuse good, if not replace it. If you have a test light or voltmeter check both sides of the fuse and let me know if it has battery voltage and I'll go from there.
