Have just joined to see if anyone can help me out with the following problem.
Ive got a 2003 Vectra 2.2 Dti. For the last few months I've been having a problem with the engine management light coming on and the car going into a 'limp home' mode and losing all power. Very scary situation.
For the last couple of weeks its been getting more frequent. Turning the ignition off then on clears the light but sometimes it comes on again after a few minutes, other times it doesn't happen for a few days. I've tried cleaning the MAF with isopropyl alcohol but not made any difference.
Can anybody give me any clues as to what it might be?
I will try the brake accelerator pedal trick to show fault codes when my wife gets home tonight with the car.
This problem also occurred about a year ago, we took it in to Vauxhall dealer who read the codes and cleaned the boost sensor. The problem seemed sorted until about 3 months ago.
