    search for the pedal test mate on here mate. it will give you the fault code from your ecu and then we can advise you from there. sounds like your car has gone into limp home mode. does this to protect the engine when a sensor or something breaks on the car.

    Welcome to AOC

    I'm not surprised it wont go to 45,000rpm as they're limited to 6,500

    Do what ben has said, and do a pedal test
