GTV V6 won't rev!
Anyone seen this problem?
Today I thought I would go out for a drive as you do. The battery was flat.... Traced fault..... wife. Turns out she had used the car midweek but left the (aftermarket) radio on. Yes I know it should turn off with the ignition.
Now then I thought, I'll get my handy starter from the shed and fire her up. Problem was there was barely enough juice to turn the engine over.
The guy from next door offered a push and asI live on a slight hill I agreed. Off I went down the hill and bump started. Problem was the car would only idle. I managed to crawl back up in 1st back to the drive. Now then when the throttle is pressed the revs rise by about 200rpm and there is almost a miss fire although it sounds more like hunting (There is no improvement even if you press and hold the accelerator)
I then discovered the Meta alarm that I hadn't been using was activating the hazards but not the siren (thats why I hadn't been using it). I managed to find the old battered remote and switched it off, although this didn't make any difference.
