    Default Vectra 2.2 SRi (22se) EML on limp home mode

    Hi guys and girls,

    On sunday night I got stuck in London, with my EML light on. The car dropped into limp home mode and would not tick over at all,
    in the end I had to get my tool box out of my pocket and call the AA as I was all suited and booted and there was no way I was getting mucky, they finally got out to me at 01:50 on monday morning! they tried clearing the codes, and they would'nt clear down, the EGR valve was blanked off, and the car would then tick over but still wouldn't run properly so I managed to get the car home at 03:00 and straight to bed as I had to be at work for 08:00 that day so 3 half hours sleep late I took it to work and swapped out the EGR valve still the same, but before I go any futher here the P code that I pulled out this morning! It is all fixed now but I thought i'd share with you guys what I found,

    P0405 Exhaust gas recirculation sensor A circuit low,
    P0532 A/C refrigerant preasure sensor low input,
    P1221 undocumented code
    P1271 undocumented code
    P1635 sensor power supply 1 circuit range/performance

    AND THE ANSWER IS!


    Air con preasure switch! located under the air box ducting once unplugged the fault disappeared!
