Take it to a repair shop. When I had a similar problem it was the tie-rod

It can be a few things wrong here so the best thing for you and the safest for me to say is take it for a m.o.t even if you still have a long m.o.t. left not much money to pay to get this right

no, that's not likely the throttle body. start by looking at the throttle body though, if there are cables going to it that control it, follow the cables back, one should go to the firewall, and one should go to a little black box. that box is you're cruise control unit. chances are that is what's causing the problem (try a salvage yard, they're cheaper than a dealer). however if there is an electric motor controlling the throttle, you should take the car to a shop to have it fixed.

I am having the same problem and also occasionally the cruise just shuts off when I am driving on dry, straight roads. Code C1288 was cleared, but it continues to happen. I was told that the electric brake module needs to be reprogrammed and that it will cost about $80.00. They are still looking into it.
