156 2.0 JTS

Help 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.
