    Question Engine cuts out (1.9cdti150)

    I have had several instances of the engine suddenly cutting out, scarey when on a dual carriaway or motorway. Today it happened just as I was going round an island. Engine restarted ok but power steering did not work. had to pull off and stop and restart all ok. When this happened previously took it to dealer - no faults in in EM log & was charged £60 for EMS reload. Strange thing- over the weekend the radio turned itself on twice during a journey after what sounded like a cough throught the speakers. The cutting out is starting to scare me as I spend 90% of my time on motor ways. Anybody got any similar problem or solution. Thanks

    Could it be the old wiring harness problem?

    The early versions of the 1.9 CDTI sometimes rubbed the engine bay against the transmission tunnel wiring harness through to the wires, causing random short circuits etc.

    That seems quite likely given your symptoms. I would hope the dealer has checked for that problem, it's mentioned on the Honest John website, so must be quite common.

    The solution was a new re-routed wiring harness.
