  1. As far as I know, it has a throttle sensor?
  2. I would accept £400 as an offer. Trying to cut my losses haha
  3. I was thinking £600 Located in Manchester. Electric fault but unknown what the fault is. Throttle pedal doesn't respond
  4. Apologies just had enough and was busy at work. It's a 2000 reg 1.7 S SDI manual, yellow colour. 61000 miles, electric windows, mot until February 2022 If you need any more information let me know.
  5. Unfortunately I have to give up on this car as I don't have the time or money to fix it. There's a fault with it and can't seem to find what it is. It's an Lupo 1.7 S SDI in yellow. Anyone interested pm me. Thank you
  6. Hello again. So I got this Lupo SDI that I bought 2 weeks ago. The first day after I got it while driving the car stopped responding. The engine would be on and idle but the accelerator would not respond. I took it to a garage and they said it's the ECU. They said it shows that you press the pedal half way or full but the signal doesn't go out of the ECU. Now I got a immo off free running ECU that was tested to be working and after placing it in, it still does the same. The guy I got it from said that he has changed the potentiometer but I'm a bit doubtful. But then again if it was that then it wouldn't show through the ECU that you are pressing on it? Any ideas what it might be? The orange coil light is blinking ( diesel engine management).
  7. That's what the garage told me. 0 voltage output from the ECU.
  8. I've read that these ECU don't have immobilizer etc. And I can't seem to find anyone that can do a data transfer
  9. If there's anyone that is selling a 1.7 Sid Lupo I'm interested. I bought one recently but it came out faulty so I had to return due to the high cost for the repair. ( Faulty ECU). If anyone knows or sells one , please let me know .
  10. Haha is that too much for personal use? Will take pics once I have it done for sure! Is there a way to avoid the rust from happening? Tomorrow they will run the diagnostics at the garage so I should know tomorrow what's wrong, I hope.
  11. https://www.ilexa.co.uk/shop/VCDS-VAG-COM/VCDS-HEX-V2-Ent3VIN Would that be ok?
  12. Yes I was told about that. Apparently the dealer according to his words, he had the sensor changed. Thank you for the information. I'm planning on keeping it for a very long time. Will have it fully painted etc . Has some rust on the roof driver's side where it meets the plastic railings. 😀
  13. Thank you for coming back to me. I did check along with the rac guy that came out but everything was fine. Now it's in the garage waiting for a diagnostic. Would you happen to have a link for a good diagnostic interface? Personally I think there was an issue but the dealer removed/reset the lights and sold it like this.🤔
