156 JTS2.0 '03 Throttle Body replaced.
Recently started getting 'motor control failure' at startup or at very least after few yards drive, causing the limited revs to kick in. I got it checked out and codes pointed to throttle sensor and throttle body, both of these were replaced reportedly fixing the problem. As soon as I picked it up I got the same motor control warning plus another few suprises. Apart from the temp gauge hitting 90 only after a mile or so, the car is now lurching at low speed. the worst point being that the wife borrowed the car to run a quick errand as she pulled in to park the brakes did not work!
Apologies as I am not mechanically minded at all, but does this sound as though it is an electrics / earthing problem as this is what I am being told.
HAs anybody else has a similar experience.
