We ended up taking the vehicle to a trusted auto repair shop. The codes came up indicating a failed throttle body, most likely in the electronics. After a few more pinpoint tests, the recommendation was to replace the throttle body. The cost for this repair was just under $500. Since there is no aftermarket on this part, Genuine Ford parts were used.

try this. set the parking brake firmly, then turn the key from off to on 3 or 5 times, if this doesn't work try the same thing with the gear selector in Neutral,the codes should read out on the digital odometer

This problem can sometimes occur due to dirt entering the throttle assembly. It can bring codes on relating to forced engine shutdown, which sounds dramatic at best. Normally a good cleaning of the throttle valve assembly cures this fault. It happens because the system fails to see throttle response or closure within parameters. This should be your first action to take, rather than spending money needlessly... Hope this helped?

Your throttle pedal is electronic and not controled by cables anymore.
So there is sensor that sense's what postion your throttle body needs to
be opened or closed. The sensor probably needs to be replaced.
The whole pedal assembly will have to come out and be replaced as it is all one unit. They are easy to take out. I learned about these at the SRT Track Expereince when the Charger that I was driving stopped having so much go and the ETC light came on. They showed us how to replace them and told us that they have to replace them all the time and keep them in stock due to people mashing the pedal. It is all plastic and you don't have to mash these like the old system.
You can try resetting the ETC as well. Place your car in the run position without starting and depress the gas pedal and release all in 2 seconds (1 down and 1 up). You should hear a confirmation "ding" if done correctly and you have know reset the sensor to know when you have open throttle.
You are still safe to drive your vehicle but you need to get it fixed or you are not going to get good performance.
