    Default EML but not a Vectra

    I had a strange problem with the company motor today whilst overtaking a lorry in the ****in rain.

    BEEP, EML on dash, Centre display read "Pollution system fault" then limp mode for duration of journey. Stopped the car, restarted, BEEP, same info again but no limp until 10 mins of driving, then limp again.

    Stopped and started engine again, same info but no more limp.

    Car was stopped and started another few times during the day, No more limp and light eventually went out.

    The car is a Peugeot 407 1.6 HDi Bucket of ****e. Its only covered 50k and gets its arse kicked daily.

    Could this be water getting into the electrics? and logging a fault? or my heavy right foot after years of driving bullet proof Vauxhalls?

    Don't really want to tell the boss as the car has just had a new clutch and dmf fitted at my company's expense
