    A4 B6 2.4 V6 Throttle body error.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    The car shut down into limp mode but resets when you turn the engine off (epc and traction control light come on). I had a mate scan it and found many errors, so he reset the errors and drove the car which had only one fault re-occur

    "17579 P1171 Angle Sensor 2 for throttle actuator (g188), Implausible Signal"

    So he sprayed some carb cleaner down the throttle body which clears it up but it keeps popping back every 20 mins or so.

    I dont fancy the £700 + VAT and fitting costs so does anyone have any suggestions or know where i can source a second hand part?

    Many thanks

    Scotty

    If i have to fit a second hand part will i be able to replace the part with a throttle body from a 3.0 instead of the 2.4?
