    This happened to my Veccy and the car went into limp mode. It cleared itself and i had the car hooked up to a computer but there were no fault codes stored even though that was the second time it had happened

    Fault code stored mate. You could get it read, but if it doesn't see any faults in a set time, it will erase it
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Cheers m8s.
    So the only way to find out what it is, is to get it tech2'd to get the faults read out?

    Hi mate

    Sorry if this reply is a little late, the spanner over an engine, this comes on if the car has been stood for some time, moisture gets into the sensor. After driving the car for a time the light should go out but if the car does loose power it will go into a limp mode take it straight to VX dealer...

    Had this problem before last time it was due to a faulty Lambda Sensor if you continue to drive whilst this happens it will damage your cat...

    i had the same light appearing on the dash this week. got it read this morning but they couldnt find nothing wrong with the car, they said it may just be when the car starts and it will correct itself if its just a error. so dont know going to carry on driving and see what happens.
