    AFM ?? take the battery off for about 30 mins see if that helps
    or get some one with a code reader to wipe the codes off the car
    LMF sell one that will do it if you ask steve as they are not on the web site yet

    Yep sounds like you've got a dead AFM, had the same problem few months back and it turned out to be the afm (tc light & engine management light & poor idle)
