new owner - starting issue - dealership cant help!

Hi all -
I just bought this car, and it had a coolant leak issue. the dealership replaced the coolant temperature sensor and the leak went away.

the same day, when i stopped the car and re-started within 5 mins, the rpm started going crazy and the car was not functional. the accelerator was not functional. after turning the car off , and re-starting , it was fine.

this happened yet another time that night. i took the car to the dealership and they kept it for 3 days and could not reproduce the symptoms. no CEL is on.

i just got the car back and after stopping an re-starting 4-5 times at different intervals during the night, it happened again.

I made a video of it , which is here...

YouTube - kameenaa's Channel

any ideas? extremely frustrated ! thank you in advance for your feedback.
