Hi there. It’s quite possible that an electrical relay that helps control the electronic throttle control is damaged, causing the acceleration problems you are having. It’s also possible that an entirely different component or system is faulty. The best way to determine the exact source of this issue is to have a professional mechanic come to your location and complete a car is slow to accelerate inspection.
