Is This Throttle Switch

Recommended Posts

put car in today for its mot and it failed, it failed on no light in reg plate at rear, and also one of the tyres was a winter tyre and was the wrong way around

thought not to bay, then mechanic said, i had to abandon the test due to the emmisions test, basically he couldnt get it to sit at 3000 rpm, it was up and down apperantely, he said it is prob the throttle switch

any one got any ideas?

also i can only find throttle sensors, is this the same thing

cheers

sounds like it then mate. best way to check is to get it hooked up to a scanner to see if there is any codes and live data to see what the sensor is doing. Before throwing money at parts

May be the icv idle control valve ?

could try cleaning it, usually just replaced as they are £25 I think.

Dirty throttle body ?

I reckon John is bang on the money as always a diagnostic scan is needed before replacing parts at cost.
