Throttle body could be knackered.

I may be way off track here, but you say there's a warning light for your brakes? If so, the problem could lie just in that particular area, and your ECU has disabled power from the engine so it can't be driven if it was dangerous. It seems to me like a certain possibility considering there's no throttle cable and it's all ECU controlled via the gas pedal (which is basically a potentiometer).

If not I would suggest wiring problem or like above me throttle body.

Just an idea anyhow,

Dan
