This is your lucky day.
My wife's Gen 2 1.3 have exactly the same problem for long time. Need to switch off engine for a while and the warning light may go off right?
Feel damn stupid driving a car like that as I used Saab for over a decade. Still using one.
I've sent the Gen 2 to Proton service center in Sec 13 PJ. They checked, said EMS error code PO120. They said that means can be due to
1)wiring problem, or 2) Pedal sensor, or 3) Throttle Body.
Went thro the process of elimination, first 2 were eliminated. That took 3 trips.
Sent in again today after they ordered parts (which took weeks), they said with new throttle body seems to work OK.
I'll be picking up the car tomorrow so that can test over the weekend. Part alone >RM500. Labour cost don't know yet.
Frankly, I will only get to know if it's really solved in a week's time after some road tests. Keep my fingers crossed.
The car can be dangerous to drive with the previous condition as there is no power at all when you needed it, like going on a slope.
Think it is this a design problem.
Call this guy Azhar 019 3752410. Helpful fellow.
See if u can short cut the trial and error and focus on the throttle body right away.
My gen2 1.3 auto always show the engine light...
After the light came out... My gen2 will jerking... After that no power like driving in 2-3 gear..
I already send to proton sc.. But the problem still there..
