    No Throttle, No Management Lights!!

    Hey guys.
    Was driving on the motorway today using cruise control, went to accelerate with the throttle pedal and there was nothing.

    Car was slowing down so i just about made it to the slip road!!

    When i stopped car was hunting on idle with no Management lights.

    Turned it off and restarted it and all was ok, I doubt they'll be any fault codes so wondered if anyone has experienced this before??

    Cheers.

    Dodgy MAP sensor possibly?? I left mine unplugged the once and it was terrible, the only other time I've had that was when the boost pipe had popped off the turbo so AFM was bypassed - maybe your AFM is on the way out?

    I'd unplug all the sensors you can see (1 at a time) and squirt the plugs with WD40 just to make sure they have a good connection - being this time of year it's easy to get moisture on the plug contacts..

    AFM six months old so could be possibilty, bloody things!!!

    All boost pipes are ok and only did it the once so im gonna go with a glitch in the ecu.

    Checked on tech today at work and no codes stored, just seems strange no fault lights came up thats all.

    Drives fine now so il just keep an eye on it.

    Cheers.
