I have a MY2000 Diesel Hilux. It frequently goes into limp mode (with the engine management light on) and I have been told it is related to the accelerator. If I turn off the ignition, pump the accelerator violently, I can get it to start again and be able to rev the engine. Sometimes I have to do this three or four times to be able to get the engine management light to go off and be able to operate the vehicle. Various Auto Electricians have not been able to find a solution.

I am not familiar with the MY200. Is it possible for someone to check the error code it throws when the engine light comes on? That should give you and indication of where to start looking.
