Same thing happened to my brother in his VK calais... a mechanic checked it out and couldnt find anything wrong and lubed up the cable behind the peddle.. a week later he ended up wrapped around a pole and wrote off the car.. he was VERY lucky to only need plates and pins in his wrist, so be extremely careful and have it checked out properly!

how about you take out the cruise control relay cos sounds like the cruise control motor is winding the throttle open! if it is doign it again after the relay is removed then it is elsewhere.......

Just to clarify, is the pedal actually going down further or just staying down when you take your foot off?
If it's staying in the one position it could be as simple as the cable sticking or an obstruction in the throttle body (eg dirt build up or part of your air filter etc).
Apart from the cruise control there should be nothing electronic that would actually open the throttle more, I may be wrong as I'm not up on the electrics of your model, but I'd hope that there would be nothing else.
If it is opening the throttle further then sorry I have no suggestion other than the cruise is faulty but you have already disconnected it.
