Engine Light

Recommended Posts


I was driving about 70mph up the motorway when car just instantly went into 'limp mode' (it felt as if I had taken my foot off accelerator)and engine light came on. It was quite scary as I was in the middle lane and struggled to get into end lane with traffic, when i stopped in the slip lane all the car would do is tick over.

So, turned off and on a couple of times, light went out, and off I went. This happened to the wife a few days earlier, but she was on a quiet road.

It is not the fuel filter as that is new, it feels electrical as the cut out was instant, no spluttering or juddering.........any ideas.

If it went into limp mode it will have stored some codes. Can you get them? You might need a garage or even the dealer to do it.
