Could be the cable that actavates the throttle plate on the intake..
The cable comes from the gas pedel and pulls on the throttle plane in the intake manifold.. opening the plate to let air flow through to the engine. On the other side from the cable is a plastic sensor with wires attached to it this is the Throttle position sensor.. if this is disconnected or broken the computer cannot receive the single that you are pushing on the gas pedel.. very rare for the throttle position sensor to break completly.. best posibility broken cable.. open hood find cable connected to throttle body, have someone in car push pedel see if it moves. Good luck.

Could also be a ground problem.

you need to buy an alignment rack, they cost a few thousand dollars, you will need a shop to install it in too. might be cheaper to just take it to an alignment shop and pay them 30 bucks to do it, as often as you are going to need an alignment kind of wasteful to buy the cow when you only need a glass of milk.

This is a common problem. All of these work from a printed circuit board. With vibration and age they will eventually get a short in the board. No one repairs them just replace the instrument cluster. Requires removing the front of the dash to remove it.
