Hi there - your symptoms suggest a problem with the throttle position sensor. Check for problem codes - whether the Check Engine light is on or not - I would expect some indication of a problem here. Changing the battery can cause loss of settings with modern cars, but this seems extreme. I recommend a loss of performance inspection by a mobile, professional mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, who will come to your location, diagnose this problem, give you an accurate assessment of damage and cost estimate for repairs.
