If it a fly by wire throttle then it could be that the pedal arm has slipped on the splined on the potentiometer, this happened on my lupo and was a common problem. If its a cable throttle then, maybe new cable? Or adjust it?

or have a look at the throttle pedal itself for a multi plug / wires on it than its fly by wire and while your there you can have a look the the pedal.
