My Doblo has gone weird?

Hi All, I got a 54 plate doblo 1.3 m-jet and it's been a nippie little van, used to pull off really quick. But the other day my throttle jamed under the carpet mat, luckly i was quick enough to pull the carpet mat out of the way.
(they wont be going in there again,i poo'd my pants)

Any ideas if this would have caused a problem?

Thanks

Gareth

Re: My Doblo has gone weird?

Is there any warning lights on ?

Sometimes if the throttle has been pressed down and bounced the rev limiter they store a code that says maximum engine revs reached warranty void, this just means its gone to maximum parameters. i would get it code read and the memory cleared and see how it runs.

you should`nt have done any damage there pretty safe.

cheers chris

I have noticed the spring light stays on for a few seconds when i start the van, the light for glow plugs, it seems theres no response in the throttle, hard to explain, takes ages for it to kick in.

thanks

Re: My Doblo has gone weird?

Thats just telling you there is a ecu malfunction i would plug it in and check codes - its possibly in limp mode (cuts power by a third if it has a panic)

could also whip positive lead of battery for ten mins to try a quick re-set if no joy it needs a code scanner plugging into it.

cheers chris
