|04 1.4, EAC fail - (petrol) re-curring TPS fault - mrmydak|
Hopefully my first post will yield some decent results.
I drive an 04 Fusion 2 which has done just over 60k
Last week i was driving from nottingham to southampton and going down the A34 at about 70 when the engine seemed to die - no response on revving, no power etc. The display said EAC fail.
Pulled over, turned off the engine and then restarted the car. Came on and drove fine for a bit, until it went again.
This time i got the AA to come out and they looked at it, chucked the diagnostic computer in and it came up with code P2135 (i think)
The code pointed to the throttle position sensor failing.
GOt back to southampton ok, and the next day we started out going back.
It went 30 times between southampton and oxford.
Got the AA to tow from Oxford to nottingham
Being a bank holiday i then had a day when i couldn't do anything.
Got it to a garage, explained the fault and they replaced the tps/accelerator pedal.
Got the car back and due to a wedding had to drive all the way back to southampton again.
Filled up and got back no problems.
Went to the wedding, and then today on the way home we got to about birmingham and it started doing it again.
20 times so far.
Not sure what to do next??
i'm assuming it can't be that switch, as surely replacing it should have fixed the problem??
anyone got any ideas??
