    Default new member + help needed with 1st fault while car still under dealer warranty

    Hello,

    My vectra is an ex-A&E ambulance, 2005, metallic grey with 98000 on the clock.

    Bought it last week before having lots of commuting to Hemel Hempstead from Nottingham.

    On the way down yesterday, the service light came up and the car went into limp mode a couple of times. But on the way back today, it was constant.

    Car passed an MOT from the NHS garage in march and had a full service done by the dealer before i got the keys. I suspect it spent too long idle on the forecourt because of the hole in the roof for the blues & twos scaring punters away!

    I don't have any manual with the car so don't have any idea which part of the engine the service light could refer to, and would like to have an idea of possible faults before calling the garage.

    Can you help? Thanks!

    Would need to get the codes read ideally mate

    Code readers are cheap enough on the bay. Click here

    Have a look round the vac pipes, looking for perishing / splits. Could be something simple.

    However, if you still have a warranty, give the dealer a call, should happily sort it for you.

    If it's under warranty and you or anyone else messes with it, it will invalidate warranty. Best taken to dealer, or at least phone them.
