Renault Laguna 2 - 1.8 16v Throttle Problem*FIXED*

for all you laguna 2 owners who have 1.8 16v petrol models mines an 02 plate and have encountered the ellicit Fuel Injection Fault, car goes into limp mode, no accelerator, then resets after half hour ,

I have a possible solution fix

Before you do anything else get the wiring loom checked out and especially the plugs and pins at the main ECU under the battery tray

If they are corroded or look dodgy clean and soak them with a suitable solution that can burn it off i dont know what kind but im sure you top mechaics can say that, all i know is it worked on my car after much cost at dealers and replaceing parts i never needed because the fault reoccured

A clip test or ECU read will throw up many daft faults but thats due to the connections being faulty

Its a bit of a job to do as an amature i beleive, but its saved my car

Now to try and recoupe some cost form my dealers as they should have picked it up in the first place and ive had parts replaced i didnt need and the problem remaind wish me luck
