Engine Service Now!!

Postby andilicious » Mon Jun 20, 2022 7:01 pm

So is there any guidance as to what would cause the van to go in limp mode and display this on the screen?

I have reset the service counter and it runs absolutely perfect for a few miles and then back to limp mode and Engine Service Now on the dash.

This morning I turned it on and there’s no check engine light or any sign of the need to service the van immediately.

I have it booked in for next week to be plugged in and checked what the codes are but just intrigued to see if this is a common problem. It is also getting a full service as well whilst in as the van is due it on time not mileage.

That's a catch-all fault message - it could be almost any fault. Likely candidates are turbo actuator or EGR.

Great. This happened on the drive home from buying it so either of them 2 things I’ll be pushing back to the seller I think!

I agree - you should be batting the problem back to the dealer (I'm assuming it's a dealer - private sale your on your own). Going forward get yourself a code reader, there're super easy to use and you can't bugger up your van using them.

Have you a link to a decent code reader? Never sure of what to buy!
