Electrical fault light, and no throttle response
2005 Renault Kangoo 1.6 Auto petrol

The vehicle revs at around 2500rpm, but no effect from throttle. It restarts if switched off and restarted, but when engine gets very hot it goes back to fault almost immediately.
The car can travel/drives in this fault mode, but there is no control from the accelerator.
Also, the fan doesnt function as before the service. This problem started same day after service done. It hardly comes on and never after parking up which it did regularly before service.
Changed throttle valve - no difference.
Fitted new temp sensor - still the same.
Finally, if engine restarted a few times from fault mode, the engine light comes on on its own, but symptoms will resume with auto gear box light eventually coming on and vehicle cuts off.

Seems like whoever carried out the " service " and what it consisted of doing , didn't help matters . With that year and Renault electrics , could be anything . You need to get it scanned t with suitable equipment that will cover every system . Here is an example , but expensive
