I was at a red light, foot on the brake when the vehicle accelerated jumping from 1000rpm to 3000rpm, multiple times in a row. Causing my car to lunge forward over and over again. I contacted the dealership immediately & was asked to drive my car in. I was headed to a destination first. When I arrived at my destination, I turned the car off for approximately 5 minutes. When I turned my car back on, there was a loud bang noise, car smelled like something was on fire & the acceleration did not return. What did happen was I now had no air conditioning. Dealership stated it was the ac compressor that went out and caused all the issues.
