I have a 2009 smart, When you start the car, the moment the engine starts it revs up to what sounds like full throttle then shuts off. Repeats next time I start it.

I plugged in a scanner and no codes found. The throttle position reads the exact same as my other smart so I don't think its the throttle pedal.

The car was in in accident and I assume it ran fine when it was hit.

Any thoughts?

Is this the first startup since the accident? Sounds like it's got a giant intake vacuum leak between the throttle body and head?

Possibly a broken (drive by wire) gas pedal...
When you tun the key to on can you see the throttle position change on the scanner when you press on the pedal ?
