Is the vehicle not taking throttle since the replacement of the thermostat? Or was happening before you replaced the thermostat?

No I don't change thermostat yetJust now I get this code p3240 and didn't take throttle only rbm 1100 in idel I press full throttle but can'tDid you think it's thermostat? ??
Expert:  Kenny replied 2 years ago.
P3240 is a very common fault code for the thermostat. If you have this fault it will need to be replaced.
I would start with that repair, clear the faults and perform a 30 minute battery reset(disconnect the negative cable off of the battery) and retest the vehicle.
