I struggled with the engine failsafe mode too where the throttle pedal would become unresponsive as the engine would oscillate between 800-1500rpm. I tried replacing, then cleaning the MAF without success. Finally, I just did a throttle reset and seems to have fixed the problem. No issues for last 13k miles. Put key to ignition 2 for 10 secs, then off 10 secs, then start car.
