and the stories go on?

I drive a 2002 Authentique Automatic which started to play up about a month ago. Like most of the posts on here my car would stall at junctions etc. The electrics incident light would show up and a little later the gearbox incident light would also come on. Then into the limp mode, which is a bundle of laughts.
The car went into a local dealer who started talking about the gearbox, which made me think in terms of a 2000 repair bill. So I went to another dealer who said it was the motorised throttle body , which they replaced. Within a day the car was acting up the same again, so back it went. Now they thought it was the plugs and coils , which they replaced. Again within a day same problem appeared, back again to the dealer. This time they put their hands up and said they had no idea what was wrong, even after reading the fault codes.
So now back to the distributer, who have taken two weeks and two visits with no results.
They have today rung to say it was a fault within the injection computer, and they will fit a new one in the morning. So watch this space and I will confirm if they are right.
