Hi, my name is***** problem will most likely be caused by a faulty electronic accelerator pedal or throttle actuator or possibly a fault with one of the wheel speed sensors. When a malfunction occurs with the pedal or the actuator the car will not accelerate. When a problem occurs with a wheel speed sensor you can usually drive the car although it may be sluggish when accelerating.

Let me know if you have any questions.
