    confused Oh god NO POWER!!!!! HELP

    On my wy back from the south last night i joined the M5 only to find when i put myfoot down all there was hardly any acceleration, as if the turbo had died. looked at the dash and low and behold the car with the spanner through it appeared!!! called the RAC who said about the "limp home mode". Ive tried restarting the car and the fault is still there. I did notice on the journey back more blue smoke than usual from the car which by the way is a 2.0 DTI. Can anyone help?? is this going to be another expensive job??

    Default

    Could be a number of things Mate, limp mode is simply a get home mode when the computer picks up something wrong on the motor, could be just a faulty sensor or something. A lot of us on here have had this happen, but unfortunately you'll have to go to the dealers to be told what's causing it. Mine was intermittent and reset after restarting the motor and then suddenly the fault completely dissappeared a few days ago.

    Try disconnecting the battery for 15 mins & then restarting, may reset the fault, but if it's a faulty sensor, it won't go away. Good luck!
