Hi folks, I have been the proud owner of a Veccy C 2.2DTi SRI 2002 since February and it has gone into limp home mode about 4times since I bought it. Usually accelerating from 4th gear into 5th. I have noticed a few people on the forum with the same error message and it seems to point to the EGR and Boost sensor needing a good clean. I have an EGR gasket on order from the stealers so will give it a good clean when the gaskets in. In the meantime I have got hold of OP-COM diagnostic and its reporting an error code of:
P1590 - Vacuum Solenoid Valve Circuit Open
(04) - Present
So what does this mean? Is the Solenoid ******ed? Is it easy to replace? Does anyone know where it is?
Unfortunatly the Haynes Mannual doesnt got into it!
On an additional note this forum has been an excellent reference and I feel alot more confident working on my Veccy than any of my previous cars. The HOW2 section is a great read.
Thanks to the forum I have managed to:
locate and fix leak in to boot (was ariel base AND rear right lightr cluster)
Fit reverse parking sensors
Repair electric window switch by cleaning the points
replace air recirculate motor. May make a HOW2 (£60 from stealers or £20 from scrappy)
Clean EGR and Boost sensor (when EGR gasket arrives!)
I'm slowly getting this car up to scratch but not feeling daunted by it.
Thanks for any help you good folks can give me about the error code!
