The wiring fault is quite a common problem, there was a recall on the D4F clios a couple of years ago to fit a piece of shielding over the wiring where the cover contacts it, might be worth finiding out if this was done, and if not why not, might be worth a call to RCS , as for the throttle fault, the most common problem is sticking of the throttle motor caused by deposits on the body, best fix is to clean the motor and replace the small seal between the rocker cover and inlet manifold to stop oil vapour blowing past into the manifold making things worse, then reset the throttle limits and try it from there, works for me in 9 cases out of ten, some garages get mixed up between the throttle potentiometer and the pedal potentiometer and hence carry out a pointless repair, hope this helps.
Currently in Gogslad's garage:
Koleos, RR1 Fireblade, RRW Fireblade, CZ 125.
