Renault Laguna II - Phase 1 - Electronics - Idle problems and possible fix - Motorised Throttle Valve
After sitting in a car park, waiting for my son to finish his football training, I had been sitting with the engine on for 1/2hour or so. I then knocked the engine off to go and collect my son, on returning to the car and starting it up, everything seemed ok, started no problem, lights work etc etc, only when i depressed the accelerator nothing happened, also orange inigition light had stayed on.
Called the AA, who disconnected the battery, resetting everything, and hey presto its fine again.
The car is a 51 reg laguna 1.8i petrol sport tourer.
Anyone any idea what may have caused this?.
I have had a problem in the past with car sitting and suddenly revving its head off, until, I stopped and re-started. Connection maybe?.
Any help would be appreciated.
