20 feet, no throttle... DTC 16612
So I recently installed some wiring and accidently disconnected the positive terminal of the battery. Now, about 1 minute or so after turning on the car (don't even have to start the engine) the glow plug light flashes and the check engine light comes on. The car will drive about 20 feet and stop. Engine continues to idle, but the throttle acts as if I took my foot off the pedal. Wait a couple seconds, and I can drive another 20 feet before the same thing happens.
VAG-COM shows the following fault code:
16612 - Throttle Pedal Position Sensor (G79): Signal too High
P0228 - 35-00 - -
Any thoughts? Dealer says I need to reset the basic settings and let the car re-learn itself. I'm skeptical.
