Hi and thanks for using 2CarPros. Com.

This vehicle has an accelerator pedal position sensor and an electronic throttle actuator motor on the throttle body. It appears one has failed. However, you need to scan the computer to determine which one is causing the problem.

I have attached pictures of the component locations. Make sure connections are clean, tight, and not damaged. If they are in good condition, the system will need scanned.

Let me know what you find or if you have other questions.

Take care,
Joe
