the car lost power down to 5mph then went altogether. can anyone help with this fault code p1161. the AA guy reset the fault code so the dealership say there is nothing on the chip to fix. cheers brookyw00t

Brooky,

INFO is KING !!!! so more please, what year is it, what engine size etc etc

Your code I think relates to Oxygen sensor, so ask them to check that !

hi 

  fault sounds familiar beleive this fault relates to the electric throtle pedle just a thought but if you take out the glove box there should be a four pin black connector that looks like the one ontop of the throtlle pedle  chop off the plug and chuck it in the bin , but make sure you connect the wires back in the right order or you will need a complete harness front to back and it aint cheap, and its a v v v big job to change hope this helps

regards robw00t

I have a 04 C3 in at present with exactly the same problem. p1161 code and  no power.

all i have done is clear code and will use it a little while see if i can get the problem back on.

the coed is P1161 THROTTLE POSITION COPY. dont know what it means.

this car had a new throttle body on 6000  miles ago.

i know of another C3 that had had 2 throttle body on in 10k. Could be a problem eh?
