Warning 156 jtd acceleration problem

Hello everyone,
I've recently purchased a 156 1.9 jtd 8v, took it to an electrician to repair some plugs and some wires hanging out in the bonnet which I didn't know what they're used for, before this the acceleration felt good, the turbo whistle can be heard and the boost can be felt but now ... the engine is like dead, no turbo sound no boost and the accelerator pedal feels more solid I don't know why since it is electronic.
I'm worried what could have gone wrong, i've cleaned the intercooler, no boost is leaking and flow is good in the exhaust.
I doubt it is the accelerator pedal, do you have any idea what could have gone wrong ? the engine feels like 40hp..

Find out what the electrician was working on first, could be any number of things causing these symptoms!
