    Exclamation Car still playing up! Limp Mode and revving up to 2000rpm on its own!

    Hi all,

    As I am sure you are all well aware Plasma, Happy Postie and Bobsignum have been helping me with my vectra c project!

    We replaced one of the turbo pipes which previously had a small slit in it and after doing this the car didn't seem to rev up and down on its own.

    I started it today after it being sat for a week (rear calipers had seized and bob picked me up a set the other day) and when cold the car runs pretty good - i.e no revving on its own and the gear changing seems ok.

    NOW...

    When the engine is warm and your are running round town the car is extremely sluggish, it revvs on its own up to about 2,000 rpm and gearchanging is really hard to get in gear. The car often puts itself in limp mode and is even slower and a light on the dash comes up....It is highlighted in yellow as - a triangle with a car and tyre marks in the s-shape underneath the car....is this a traction control light?!?!?

    I am really really puzzled by this one...its really strenuous to drive at the moment!

    Thank you all in advance for your responses...

    ESP/TC fault from the light I think.

    hi mate,

    yeah Plasma plugged his laptop in earlier today and the only faults that came back were bulbs that had gone and outside air temperature not being read - this was because the connector is missing from the bumper...no big deal...

    but nothing relating to this problem! Can you elaborate...what you think is causing this and what can be done about it?

    thanks,
