Multiple warnings, no revs control - Avantime
Rainy night (Friday of course!)
Had been doing multiple short journeys (school runs, club drop off etc)
Stopped for 5 minutes, back to car, start ignition (without problem)and get a Electronic fault/service warning and a ESP warning. Start off to get home. No accelerator control of revs. Manage to drive home using gears. Revs sometimes idle, sometimes 2500, no real pattern/reason/predictability to rev rate. (fairly hairy at junctions)
After a few mins I got an exhaust gas warning too.
Stopped car for a few mins. Restarted and no change - same issues.
No other electical problems that I can tell (lights etc working)
Husband away for the weekend and need my lovely car to work
Currently in lousue's garage:
2.0l Avantime, Smart 4 2, Smart crossblade
