1996 bmw 328is acceleration

Hi Everyone,
I was driving my 1996 bmw 328is yesterday and when I turned a corner and pressed the gas pedal, nothing happened.
The gas pedal goes to the floor but it's like it's not being pressed, just idles.
I don't see mechanical linkage, it looks like it's voltage controlled.
Could it be a resistor or fuse?
Please help.
Thank you in advance.
Shawn

Solved

Hi,
I just solved this myself by looking around better.
I took off the bottom part of the dash assembly under the steering wheel.
I found the rubber gromlet (#14 in picture below) that holds the cable onto the throttle lever had worn out and the cable was just hanging there. I replaced the rubber gromlet and put it back together. Working great now.
