It sounds like you have a problem with your pedal position sensor or throttle position sensors. Using a scan tool, test the pedal position sensor by reading the output of the sensor as you slowly press down on the pedal. The value should slowly increase as you press on the pedal. If they don’t or are erratic, further tests can be conducted to pinpoint which sensor is failing. If you need further help with this, a certified technician, like one from YourMechanic, will be able diagnose the high idle and can replace your pedal or throttle position sensor as necessary.
