Had the car just over a week. Posted previously about the car kangarooing which seems to be when going from vacuum to boost, I've ordered dongle etc from Litchfield to do some logging. Yesterday however I got engine management light on. Codes coming up are p0223, p0228, p2133 with the same codes pending.
They seem to relate to throttle position sensor. Has anyone had this before, should I get the dealership onto this although I'm in Belfast, he's outside Wolverhampton.
Could these relate to my kangarooing?

Any help would be appreciated

It appears it could be the throttle position sensor in the pedal is reding wrong and fooling the throttle bodies (imo) it would be strange for both TB's to go down but if TPS is shot it makes sense.

I think I've caused it now.
After checking where the throttle bodies are I now realize I unplugged them to check they wee on tight yesterday before the fault popped up. I was checking and tightening everything. Not sure whether to clear them or leave it until I get the dongle to data log for Litchfields.

Did you have ign on, just unplugging will not cause a fault code
I would clear the codes and see if it runs ok if so problem solved

No you should be able to reset the ecu with the BT dongle you can with the laptop version
