Anyone had this.
Driving along Engine Management Light came on. Instant limp home mode
, 16:15 in afternoon coming into Chesham. Oh me thinks Alfa dealer in Amersham, that was lucky.
Limps into Amersham 16:50 now. Arg, going to be to late.
Looks at door to service area, cool closes at 18:00.
Spoke to guy on desk, sorry to busy bring it back tomorrow.
Asked nicely if can put on diags and reset could be just bad connection due to all this rain. He goes and asks mechanic. My lucky day. Will reset it for me.
OK, so the error it has thown up is either Accelerator Potentiometer problem or Throttle body problem
Anyway they reset it and it went away
Charge for this. Nothing. So thanks go out to Perrys at Amersham
Been fine for the last couple of days. Well haven't driven it much but tonight it was raining and while it was sitting there idling bingo, on it came again. Limped home from work.
Hmm still, could be a loose/wet connection or the Accelerator pot or throttle body.
Has anyone fitted a replacement pot and if so where is it and was it hard to do or expensive.
