Im would think that you have put the vacuum pipes back incorrectly, the obvious easy mistake is the check valve on the tcs which is located on the false bulhead being fitted the wrong way round or the solenoid piped up incorrectly.
Use the search facility as someone in the past posted a drawing of the correct vacuum pipe layout.
Disconnect your battery over night, this might reset the limp home mode.

Limp home mode reverts back to cable operation although it has a powerful spring you have to press against to get the throttle pedal to move.

Default Thank you for answer

When i was cleaning my vaccum hoses and vacuum valves i disconect the conector from one vacum pipe and motor go mad ,after that i turn of my engine and turn it of and all seams ok,disconect all conectors and sprey it with wd -40 but when i cam to my friend first i cant start car then when i start it i hav no trotthle gas .The wire of my gass was fall out than i put it on but few meters after i could not trothtle any more and have no idille gas.TCS light wass on and i think that is trottle body ,i read somwer that in isoleted cases it happened that the lever for the limp-home wire hass locked in an intermediate position about 12-15 mm from its rest position.In this event ,the butterfly cannot be operated by wire if the car goes into limp home mode and the car is undriveable.

Is that and how can i handl with that???

That's true.... just add the DI cassette.


Joev have you seen this thread have you?

Was it helpful?
What do you need to figure out what's wrong? What documents you found that you can't translate? I could do like a syntesis for you.

Try to post pics of your intake manifold and valves, somebody that knows something about TCS (not me ) could see which hose is in the wrong nipple.

Not a good idea to disconnect anything while the engine is running as it will be picked up as a fault and thus go into limp home mode.
