    Default Throttle Position Sensor...

    With regards to the following thread:

    http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showthread.php?t=112658

    The car finally decided to through a fit today, spanner light and ABS/TC light came on. The engine would sit at 1,500rpm and this was independant of throttle position ie the throttle pedal done nothing.

    Got it to a local garage who plugged it up for nothing and it has thrown up a fault relating to the sensor at the top of the pedal, however as the diagnostic was general I was urged to go to either Vauxhall or a local Diesel specialist for full proper diagnosis - ie to check if it is a faulty throttle sensor, dodgy connector/connection, ECU etc.

    If it was the throttle sensor at the pedal what is the cost i'm looking at?

    Cheers in advance,

    Got the car back from the dealer and the Throttle Pedal needs replaced. Dealer was quoting £353, but I walked away with just paying for the diagnostic.

    Depends how much you can get a new one for then?
    Compared with your dealer quote I think the used one seems a good bet lol

    The worrying thing is the car is the dealer has stipulated that they will replace and then 're-assess'. I worry this is a wiring issue or worse ECU problem.
