ignition and start engine again, then everything is workin well as before until next time... Whats the proublem could be? (sorry for my terrible english)

your throttle position sensor is playing up.
replace the throttle pedal.

the ECU is getting an error from the TPS and basically 'losing' the pedal position. the ECU then goes into limp mode, ignoring the signal it receives from the TPS and flashes the heater plug lamp to tell you how clever it is.
by turning off the ignition and re-starting the car the system is reset and therefore the pedal position is 'known' until the fault re-occurs.
