In my case also brake switch was replaced.. also bulb lamps replaced wiring checked..What's a little weird about this one is the lack of codes... the ECU is generally pretty sensitive to control inputs that could have a safety component, and generally flags accelerator issues with the dreaded flashing glow plug light.
That said, hard for the ECU to tell a normal idle signal from a "should not be idle".
By chance, any issues with your brake lights and/or brakelight switch? You'd need VCDS to watch both sets of contacts, but it's one thing that can make the ECU stick to idle and ignore the accelerator, which it will do if it thinks the brakes and accelerator are being pressed at the same time.
And with brake switch in this ECU only affects if you are driving.... if you have speed signal.. you can simulate by pressing lightly the brake and accelerator pedal at same time.. accelerator stops responding.. but as soon you leave brake the accelerator starts responding again...
I this situation is different because it only resets if you press clutch or leave accelerator for 2 or 3 seconds..
