your not alone

Hi all,

This is my first post. My wife has an A3 1.6 (W reg in UK).

Just recently the engine revs high without the foot on the accelerator. The rev counter goes up to the middle (about 12 o'clock on the dial) and stays there, with the engine revving away.

We have to turn off the engine to stop it revving.

Anyone got an idea about this?

We are not mech minded, so will have to take in into the garage and reply on them to sort it out. But I'd feel better if I knew what was going on.

Thank you.

My 98 a3 1.6l has identical symptoms after having throttle body cleaned 2 correct rough idle/occasional cut out. From what iv read if there a fault with the battery or disconnected ECU needs ajustment.
