Suggested Solution

Check that you are getting a 5volt feed at the throttle motor ,or turn ignition on and look in to throttle and get someone to press the throttle to see it,s motoring open and shut.sound,s like that,s the area of your issue,just need to prove what part,s faulty,I.e. throttle pedal ,throttle motor,or e.c.u.
