My dad has got a GMC Suburban for the weekend and is planning on buying it, it's a 1996 with the 6,5 Turbo...

After driving for a while, a light illuminated in the instrument cluster and said Service Throttle Soon, following the Throttle stopped working, pressing the gas pedal had no effect !

Turning off the engine, and starting up again made this problem go away for a while and then this comes up again, what could this be ?

This truck is not in my signature..

Make sure it gets fixed BEFORE he buys it. No sense in him paying for it, unless they take that much off the price!!

After a little research i found out the car still has some wiring harness for blinking lights...

tried to wire up 2 fog lights i had, and yeah.... guess it was some sort of a federal car in the states...

:cool:

but yeah, it totally needs more power.... the TPS just needed some moving and now its fine, guess it had got stuck since the car hasn't been moved recently...
