I away from home, my car has broken down about 15 minutes from where I am staying. Basically drove my car this morning no problem. Came to my Mums place, started fine, got out at the shops to pick up some food. Left the car about 30 minutes, got in and tried starting it the dashboard all lights up and but nothing happens, no attempt to crank over, no clicking no nothing when the key is turned.

I had my portable diagnostics scanner with me and it is giving fault code:

17952 - Angle Sensor 1 for Throttle Actuator (G187): Signal too Large

17580 - Throttle Angle Sender 2 - signal too low

Sadly my AA membership ran out by 2 days!! and I am out of budget to take another subscription.

Anyone have any ideas what may be up or what has caused this ?

I've had 5 years of not one breakdown with this car so thats pretty good going.

I'd be beyond grateful of any ideas on what I can do to get it going again :) [y]
