Back from the weekend away and managed to hook up the diagnostic tonight - 2 fault codes present... p1220 - throttle position sensor 2 circuit P0105 - MAP sensor insufficient activity not sure whether the second one is a result of me cleaning the MAP with WD40 a few days ago - the cars only run on the drive for 10 minutes since then. Reset the faults but the same ones came back instantly upon starting
Disconnecting the battery for an hour did nothing so cleared the two faults and embarked on throttle relearn. Engine light on straight away but percevered with relearn. As the car started to warm up there were occassional stutters shudders with the revs dropping from 1300 to 1200 for 5 seconds. Relearn completed. Ran diagnostic again and still got the p1220 code but nothing else now. Checked allconnections including ecu but no different. Unable to unplug at the throttle pedal as no space and not sure how the connector comes apart. Looks like will be towing down to fiat dealer
p1220 is manufacture specific so AA wouldnt know what it was anywaay & wouldnt really care. Take it to another garage but respect the fact others have booked often weeks in advance so it might take a day or two before they can get someone to have a good look at your car.

Thanks everyone for input code is p1220. It is a petrol. We have no emissions readings here in SA. Def not the key either as I have two keys and both give this issue. Will update once we nail it down.
