You may have had more then one codes then that. 1618 code means the transmission control module has troubled codes stored in it but looks like he did not retrieve them. The other code is for problem with the ABS wich I suspect the module may be bad but there were no ABS codes posted. As for the throttle not responding could be different problems. May be a bad voltage regualator. If your voltage drops below 10 volts then the electronic throttle stops responding when you try and accelerate. Next time that happens check the charging system. Worse case scenario you either going to need to replace the electronic throtle but you will need to load the software which can only be done at a dealership or shop that has access to software or if there is a problem with the transmission and may be going into limp home mode. But if that were the case the service transmission urgent message should come on the instrument cluster?
