    Default Problems with Spanner and Safe-mode

    I have a 2.0 DTi.

    When driving on the A1 recently I noticed that when driving at around 70mph for a constant period of time the car with spanner light comes in and I feel the power kind of drop for around 30 seconds or so then the light goes off and the power is restored, it will constantly do this for the rest of the drive until I have pulled off the A1 then it wont happen again. I have tried with both the cruise control on and off no difference.

    I should point out that when I drive home I do not have this issue and there are alot of national speed limit roads one in paticular I drive constant at around 65 to 70mph and I have no problems.

    Things I have done so far, I have checked all pipes and are all great, also removed EGR valve and inlet manifold and have cleaned these however this has not made a difference, any ideas?

    Cheers in advance.

    Get the codes read first and post up the results. My guess us it'll come up with boost pressure negative deviation. Try cleaning the boost sensor and if that doesn't work then try adjusting the turbo actuator rod my a turn.
