Customer Question

Hi, I've got a sprinter 208cdi 2001, was running fine, next time I get in it fires up fine, but the throttle does nothing, won't rev at all, so starts and sounds fine, but no throttle, any ideas?

this does rather sound like the pedal sensor has failed to me

best thing to do is get the vehicle plugged into a diagnostic device to see if it flags up a pedal problem fault code - if its does then replace the pedal
