The car has done 130.000 miles. When driving the accelerator stops working, the engine continues to run. The engine workshop light comes on and the cruise control light comes on. Repeated pressing of the accelerator the engine starts to pick up. Fault codes that are coming up: P0473, P0471, P0699 Any help appreciated.

The generic codes you have are of little help. Suggest you find someone that can pull factory codes. Sounds like you have a electronic thottle control problem...but you probaly already are aware of that. Lots of shops have the Ross-Tech Vag Com that can pull the codes needed to diagnose. Part stores can only pull generic codes.

agree with miles,you need a prof to read codes and determine problem
