Hey guys, me again yayy!

So my newest issue that's been happening for a month now on my 2016 cruze with 7000 kms on it, is a constant buzzing vibration in the gas pedal. It's not a traditional vibration from a wheel balance issue, etc, but a buzzing. Think of like an electronic buzzing. It's so subtle that you barely feel it until you exit the car and your foot now has a buzzing tickling feeling on it. I feel it at all speeds, all rpms. I've only started noticing it for a month now and during this month we've had heat warnings in effect (34 celcius) so I'm not sure if this issue is weather dependent and will go away in the cold or not. I was thinking road vibration but the dealer mentioned how the car gas pedal isn't (or is?) drive-by-wire so It wouldn't be the road vibration. Plus, if it were the road vibration, it'd feel it from my other foot being against the floormat.

Any ideas? My last issue was a pulsating steering wheel and that went away when I pulled the stabilitrack fuse and re-inserted it. I'm wondering if it's something coinciding with that since the stabilitrack is always monitoring the gas pedal to know when to intervene in case you slide on the road. So maybe it's that?

I'm a computer IT guy and must solve ALL issues so this is driving me absolutely insane lol.

Thanks

Sorry it's a 2016 cruze limited. So not the newest one. So whatever it is, is causing buzzing vibration to the gas pedal so I'm wondering if it's hard to follow the pedal into the engine bay to see if maybe there's something that may be causing it? If I stick my foot on the bar that connects to the pedal, I can also feel the buzzing sensation. Is there a diagram somewhere that shows where the pedal goes to so I can perhaps follow it and see what's going on?

I get that it's probably going to be really hard to figure out what is sending these little buzzing vibration sensations to the gas pedal but is there a washer I can buy that would help absorb the vibration from the pedal? So like, if I bought a rubber washer and inserted it to the pedal's bolt attached to the inner firewall?
