    Any body had any dealings with this one?
    was flooring it in 3rd from low revs and was flying until the light came on and all power was lost..
    pulled over and turned ignition off and on, and it was fine after.....
    ross tech says wiring, dirty throttle, (mines clean) or TB malfunction.
    It had a brand new TB 3 years ago:huh:

    That's a new one on me! It might have been a one off where the ECU threw a wobbly reading the throttle postion. I wouldn't worry too much unless it comes back again.
