Oddly, sometimes the warning lights come on for reasons unconnected with what you might expect... for example, on diesels the glowplug warning light usually comes on due to low fuel pressure and can often indicate that the fuel filter needs replacing.

This problem does sound very like the Throttle Position Sensor (TPS) has failed. BUT you really need to get the error codes read by someone who has an OBD2 reader so you can be more confident about the actual problem. It's best not to start replacing parts based on guesswork... I'm often wrong!

Now you can buy obd2 reader for 5pounds, or 7pounds if buy with bluetooth for your android phone
That's a great idea... an OBD2 reader is a sensible thing to own. If you have an Android device, then an ELM327 Bluetooth interface and the free Torque app will allow all 'powertrain' error codes to be read.

Thanks but after driving car for a day it fixed itself. Probably because it's been left for two weeks. Glad didn't had to spend any money thanks

I'd still recommend buying a cheap OBD2 reader/scanner of some sort, just in case (and I'd also want to see what the stored code was from the recent problem!).

You can Check every connect of wire etc, but check engine light will be still flashing. One way is cancel it by obd2 reader.
