    Question 3.2 gsi 52 plate

    hi everyone i have a problem with my throttle pedal, when i rev the car slightly the rev gauge goes nearly to the limiter. this only happens now and then but it is a bit dangerous if i was driving at the time. i am not heavy footed it just does it when i tap the pedal a bit. I can't understand it does anyone know what it could be?

    The pedal is electronic so could be the sensor for the throttle position, as paulvectrac said.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Thanks for the reply (again lol) i assume the whole pedal has to be replaced, i wil take it out and see if i can clean it, if not new pedal, they are not that bad £30 notes online

    It must be some sort of variable resistor but i'm only guessing. For that money i'd just replace it as I bet its a bit awkward to change being in the footwell!
