    Default Remap problems

    Hey all, you may of seen me a couple of months ago asking for remap help, and here I am again.

    I have an SRI 150.

    It seems on hotter days the car will go into limp mode at 3k revs in 3rd gear and up and it's really starting to **** me off. Today it did it in 2nd which was a first and as exciting as it was at first I just want it gone now, back to standard.

    Anyone know a simple way of achieving this? Oh and I cba going back to the guy that did the remap.

    Teapot comes highly recommended but if I drive all the way down there for a new remap how do I know it wont still have the same problem? Worst idea ever getting remap, might aswell of wiped my arse with 300 quid

    If the car keeps going into limp-mode... something is wrong and the ecu needs to be scanned to findout what is wrong.... or do the pedal dance.


    Than you solve the problem once you know why the car goes into limp-mode. And voila problem solved.

    It has nothing to do with the remap, and this would happen even without it.

    It was fine before the remap, something in there cant handle the boost under heavy acceleration

    Have you checked the ecu for any logged fault codes?
    If you haven't than it would do this regardless, it could be a bad boostpipe, a dirty vnt mechanism, dirty egr or one of the vacuum pipes leaking...

    Long story short readout the ecu check for fault codes and if you can't find any... check the vnt lever on the turbo it should be easy and smooth to move all the way up... if it doesn't do that than the vnt needs cleaning.


    With a remap these things show quicker as the car boosts higher for longer periods of time... so again 9 out of 10 times the remap isn't the problem but the state of your boost system is showing it's hidden flaws. Sort them out and the car will be back to normal. Don't blame the remap, remapper or the company that did the remap before you actually check what is wrong in the first place.

    Return to standard map first would rule out if it’s a mapping issue.

    Nope it wouldn't it will just cover up the problem for a period until it gets worse... and than it will return.

    So what it comes down to = readout the ecu find what is causing the limp-mode and fix it.

    I didn’t say it would fix it but would highlight in a fast and simple way where the issue is coming from as in when the engine is being pushed a bit. But it’s all guess work until it’s been diagnosed.
    We know what we are doing and talking about it’s showing others that it needs to be done.

    Thanks for the help people, will have it looked at on the computer. Tonight I drove very economically and when i did push it past 3k revs i gradually accelerated rather than foot down and it didnt go limp. I think a guy in work has a fault reader i can plug in, thanks again, will keep you posted

    A cheap code reader wont see all the stored codes.

    Get Op-Com or Tech2 etc on it and scan it.
