    Default Urgent help needed, more signum problems :(

    Got the car back on Thursday after having a new dpf fitted after it blew up, cost a fortune and made me mad

    Now I'm on holiday in Wales and was driving today and the spanner light is on and the car can't get above 60mph and is on limited revs too,
    I'm in the middle of nowhere in Prestatyn and wondering what the heck to do ??
    Am I ok driving it or will I cause more damage?
    And the other thing is I don't really want to take it to a garage here
    1 because I'm meant to be on holiday lol
    2 I've just spent a fortune with the garage in manchester and I don't wanna even pay for diagnostics when they should do it technically

    Im so mad
    many thx and hope someone can answer,
    its about 80 miles home so quite far..

    Vehicle : Signum

    Trim : Design

    Engine : 3.0 CDTI

    Year : 2005

    Default

    You tried this?

    With the ignition off, press and hold down the accelerator and brake pedals as far as they go. Now turn the ignition to position 2 so the dash lights come on, but DO NOT START THE ENGINE!

    Any fault codes will either appear in the odometer display as ECNxxxxyy, or the engine management light will flash out the code. If you see it flash 10 - pause - 3 - pause - 10 - 1, then the stored code is P0301.
