Suspect you need to reset throttle adaptation. IIRC, turn ignition on (without starting car)and hold throttle to floor for 60 seconds. Turn ignition off, and then start car.

Just found this:

  1. Push Engine button ON (once; do not start engine)
  2. Step on the throttle pedal down (all the way down)
  3. Hold it there for 30-40 seconds
  4. With throttle still down, push Engine button OFF
  5. Release throttle
  6. Wait 2 minutes
  7. Start car normally. Done

Try this slightly different

1. Insert fob into slot
2. Press Start/Stop Engine button
3. Depress gas pedal all the way down for ~30s (if you listen, you will hear adjustments)
4. Release gas pedal.
5. Wait about 30 seconds
6. Start car
