Hello, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will try help you with this.
Can you tell me what engine you have?
We think 2.3 - but the full reg is NG51VDF so maybe you have facilities to verify: Thanks, Mark
Have you checked it for fault codes?
There were numerous (about 8) fault codes including the accelerator, fuel pump and speedo - carried out by the RAC
I did one similar to this last week and it was caused by the throttle pedal sensor. Replacing the pedal cured it.
Thanks very much - we will try that. (My son-in-law, whose vehicle it is, thinks that some sensor was changed in an effort to cure the fault, but will have to check exactly what was done) The fault persists!
Let me know how you get on.
Will do. Many thanks: XXXXX XXXXX
Did you fit the new accelerator pedal sensor?
My Son-in-law assures me that the sensor was fitted a few weeks ago - he is not confident that the vehicle will take them on long journeys without breaking down and I am at a loss to encourage him further.
The vehicle stands there, is driven around the industrial estate without any trace of fault, but without my financing further investigations, I fear the vehicle, useful as it is, is going to remain out of use for this family of nine, who otherwise have to travel everywhere in two cars.
So, thanks for your help, it looks as though we have hit a dead end in my efforts to boot them into resolving the issue before the holiday season kicks in and they really need a large vehicle to carry them and all their stuff!
Please remember to rate my assistance and good luck getting them to get it fixed.
