147 2.0 will not idle
I have a 2001 2.0 TS Lusso. The car cut out twice and came up battery charge fail but still started, using a multimeter it showed that the alternator wasn't charging. It now has a new alternator on it and the battery charge level light has gone out.
I thought all fine and when I go to the traffic lights it cut out as it wouldn't idle. It starts straight away, i'm guessing this won't be crank sensor (had this problem a couple of months back)
The car drives fine. It does however pop up monitor control system failure occasionally, when I plug in my OBD it only says lambda and brake light sensor. I've ordered both lambdas, front and back (ouch). I don't think this will be the problem though tbh
If I really really feather the revs down it will idle but only around 500 ish revs..
Help please as i'm getting fed up of heel toeing when coming to a stop haha.
