Clio 182 Revving with no throttle & Electronic Fault Light

Hi all,

The past few weeks the Electronic Fault Light has randomly popped up and the car has gone into limp mode. A quick restart of the car and the light disappears, then the car drives as normal.

However, today I had a bizarre issue where the revs were sticking at ~2k RPM when I pressed the clutch in to change gear, as if the throttle was slightly pressed. A few roundabouts later it would sit at ~3k RPM with the clutch pressed in and no throttle applied. Finally, the Electronic Fault Light popped on, and the revs went back to the normal idle range when the clutch was pressed in.

Restarted the car and it was back to normal, revs were sitting in the normal range. Then at the next set of traffic lights the light popped back on randomly.

Has anyone else run into a similar issue? Cheers!
