possibly PPS (pedal position sensor.) Try get it self tested.
If its ok, it could be the wire to the the Throttle body to open the Butterfly. I had this problem once. I think its in the connector loom on the LHS kick panel, which is also another good thing to check.

Hi thanks for that. How do you do a self test on that sensor?

ford dealer, tell em to self test it on the IDS. just let them think you will buy the part from them and they will do it for free!
