    Capacitance Discharge (disconnecting the battery and shorting
    the terminals together) may help with 17976 not sure about the rest

    Looks as though your throttle potentiometer has failed. could be a simple fix (go to measuring blocks, enter 060, then click on "basic settings") to run the throttle alignment, or the throttle may be genuinely faulty.

    Sounds like it needs a good clean out and the Adaptation re-done if the above does not sort it worth trying that before you go buying a new one.

    Did you try clearing the codes and see what ones return ?

    Check the wiring plug for corrosion.

    Mine had fault codes like that and there was some crust on the pins on the throttle body, i sprayed in some WD40 and plugged/unplugged it many times and that sorted it.
