    Default 2.2 Direct spanner light. Help!!

    Spanner light has come on today, car has gone into limp mode.It's a facelift 2.2 direct. I believe this means it's engine electronics. Any ideas?

    As above.......High pressure fuel pump or Fuel pressure regulator. Call your local dealership with your reg and vin number ask them to do a check if the fuel pressure regulator recall has been done. If it hasnt then book it in for it as this is free. If it is the fuel pump then dig deep buddy its gonna cost you........

    Yes, just noticed it as a small miss to start with. Seemed a bit intermittent, spanner light came on just after putting fuel in, but was expecting it to anyway. Went into limp mode then. Car still starts and runs , just not as it should. Fuel pump and reg done 18 months ago.

    Before changing parts willy nilly, how about getting the fault code(s) read out to verify it is the FP or FR.
