My car is revving automatically. Can I fix this myself?

I've got a Fiat Palio 1.6 (with fuel injection). I left the interior light on for four days which drained the battery. I got someone to help jump start the car and immediately the following problem started.
The car revs automatically from 1500 rpm to about 4000 rpm and then back to ~1500 etc. This happens every few seconds, independently of the accelerator pedal.
I tried disconnecting the battery and reconnecting it, but the problem persists. I checked the fuses and they all seem ok.
Any ideas of things I can try before sending the car into the dealer?
