just been through the carwash and when i started the car the revs rise to 6000 rpm without touching the accelerator!!!!!

if i push the brake it drops to idle.

the accel pedal has no effect whatsoever.

can anyone help?

i need to use the car in the morning .
 
Is your car a phase 1 or two?

Best let the car dry out might well fix it.
SOunds like a losee connection on the leham maybe to blame.

the car was fine until i started it after the car wash.
Most likly you've gone and kncoked a sensor off the engine manifold them need to get under the bonnet check for any connections which are obviously disconnected.

I wouldn't expect it to be the ECU might have got wt wires but unplugging it won't fix that.

Yep electric throttle cable on your car.

just spoke to ben @ angleworks and he said the butterfly maybe stuck.
i took the elbow off and pushe d the accelerator, the butterfly only moved a a few milimeters ................... now the car only goes to 400 rpm when started???

eh? you should be able to fully open the throttle butterfly by hand (with the electircs OFF)

maybe a damaged vacc line or air leak somewhere, have you had the plenham off recently?

no mate, someone pushed the trottle continusly and it only opened once or twice, the rest of the time only a fraction

Make sure the brake servo vaccuum hose is on. its on the right hand side od the inlet mabifold at the top

It plugs into the manifold, looks like a shiny black plastic pipe, quite hard i.e not rubbery. When you remove this they rev like fook!

Attatched to the throttle bodie, where you felt for the butterfly.
 
  Jap Shed
the butterfly is supposed to be closedv when not accelerating right??
is it supposed to open 90 degrees when pedal is pushed??

Yeah thats it. spray some carb cleaner in there see if that helps
 
  Jap Shed
thats the prob then! when the accel is pressed the butterfly only opens a fraction............... will find out why tommorow
