    Hi Could a faulty component ( egr valve, throttle body, MAF sensor etc) cause the pedal voltages to be clamped at 0v? I ask this as I am now clutching at straws on a problem with a tigra B 1.3cdti. The voltages on the signal wires going to the ecu are correct and at max throttle are about 3.7...

    Hi everyone, I`m brand new here. For 3 months I have been battling with this dreaded error, reading forums, watching youtube videos and I can't fix it. The car runs on low rpm (900) when cold and on high when hot (1200). I started by cleaning the throttle body very well. Still same error. Then I...

    Been using answer from these forums a lot but although some posts similar none appear to be the same. Basically intermittently when applying power the throttle cuts after a split second. Feels a little like traction control engaging but no traction warning light only occasionally when it does...
