08 1.4 starjet grande punto problem!

i recently got a grande punto, the eml is/was on. it would run fine for 50 miles or so then cut out and not rev past 2000, but taking the battery off then on would reset it. then i thought it could be the throttle body so took it off and changed it, it then wouldn't reset at all. the eml code says it is a throttle pedal position sensor. we changed this, didn't help but on removing the old one we took the plug out and plugged it back in and it worked for a few seconds with the eml flickering on and off then it went backed to normal. all of this seems to point to a wiring fault so i started to take the tape off the wiring and it looked fine but when i plugged it back in it never revved at all. this all points to a wiring fault/short circuit/bad earth. but before i strip the loom out is there any common problems? anyone ever had anything like this before?!
