Have you tried removing the harness plug and throwing 12v across the blades on it to see if it does it's thing? (polarity is not an issue, just 12v + on one and - to the other)
If that works you issue lies with the connection on the TPS or the TPS setting, the fuse near the radiator overflow bottle, the TPS proper, the wiring, or at the extreme, the circut board inside the solinoid plug on the harness.
We checked the fuse and the wiring, but no, so far we just moved the throttle to the point where it activiated the VVT solenoid on another Spider we had sitting nearby, and nothing happened on mine. I'll pursue this week.
Agreed. I did advance the throttle to the stop with the key on and got nothing. I will check for 12V at the fuse, then energize the solenoid separately to see what I get. Aren't there three solenoid wires? Or am I misremembering?
Well I solved it yesterday. The solenoid wasn't stuck after all.
I got 12V at the fuse and at the three-pin plug. I separately tested the solenoid off the car, which clicked fine when hooked up to my go-kart starter battery. Hmmm. Put it all back together and still no action when the throttle was fully opened. So I diddled the various connections a bit, and it turned out to be the Bosch multi-plug on the TPS not making good contact. Wiggled and cleaned a bit, and it works fine now. Thanks all.
I posted this in the Milano / 75 forum, but not much response so I thought I'd try here: It's been a while since I was on this forum; so long that I've been forgotten and had to re-register!
Anyway, I'm in the process of resurrecting my old hillclimb 75, and I'm having some problems which...
I just bought this car that needs to be put back together. My son and I are going to use this car for Auto X and we are wondering how the engine will stand up to this kind of use. It is mostly short tracks and probably wont get out of 2nd gear. Thanks for any and all responses

The original Bosch module for GTV6/Milano is 0 227 100 111. There are many Bosch modules which look alike and have similar numbers but it is hard to determine the difference. I bought a 0 227 100 100 equivalent on ebay New Ignition Module Bosch for Lada, VW Golf, Jetta. Made In Usa - BM300 |...
I have been doing some research on the 'fuel quality plug' that tails off the Motronic ECU under the dash. Based on how it is wired, the ECU may run in open loop or closed loop mode depending on specified fuel octane. Some info / photos here: Craig's Place, Fuel Quality Plug (S30)
