Throttle potentiometer


I'm driving a 04 Renault Clio 1.2 l 16v with 44k on the clock.

Last week it lost power and acceleration on the motorway on the way to work.

An ignition light and engine light came on. I had it read at a garage who said it was showing faults with the throttle potentiometer and also it was showing fault 1018?????

He was unsure what that fault code meant.

His advice was to get rid of the car as it was very expensive to fix this problem. The fuse box was also very wet and seems to of been filling with water alot.

The problem has happened a number of happened a couple of times since last thursday.

How big a problem is this and what is fault 1018???

I have noticed also since the problem started that on startup i get a wirrring noise just after the engine starts up.
