Start by replacing the Petrol pump relay!!!+- R400 i think.

You cant adjust it. Your car has a tps sensor " throttle position sensor " and a iac idle air control. these are both on the throttle body. is the check engine light on? The best way to check them is on a scanner at places like auto zone they will let you use one for free. and will help you do it. first check the codes if any then look at live data scroll down till you see tps and look at its values rev the motor up and it should change values are 0% to 100% no throttle to full throttle. at idle it should be 18 to 26 or so. if it doesnt change or its at a high number and no gas is being given then its bad. also look at the iac and see if it changes as well. you can also google the resistence values for each and ohm them out. It does sound like a bad tps. try that first , and the tps is easy to change

My degree is in electronics and I would be somewhat skeptical with that explanation. Define main relay? The relay has to control some electronic device like the dome light or turn signals. When the lights and radio cut out it sounds like a short circuit but that should have definitely blown a fuse. It is unlikely that it is an intermittent short and which is not fused because the insulation would quickly burn off the wires and start smoking. Therefore, I believe it would be more of an open circuit and would first check the battery for good clean connections. Next I would check the ground wire from the battery connection to the engine block and vehicle chassis.

thats because the car is not at operating temperature.you will get a slight drop in power and drivability until its warm.do not try to use any more than 1/3rd gas pedal until its warm anyway.your car has an automatic cold start device (choke)that operates when the car is cold.
