    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

    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?
