    Default Intermittant Limp mode

    What would cause this? I cleaned out the EGR first time it happened a week ago and it was fine until yesterday then went into limp mode again. I left it 30 minutes and she's been fine ever since!?

    it's got to be plugged in to a diagnostic tool to find out whats wrong, really... avoid the cheap one's as they have been found lacking in the ability to read all the codes that could be thrown up..

    It's a shame GM didn't see fit to have the same ability that Astra H's have to read the codes in the mileage display. Still that'd be too decent of them...

    Yeah, considering the Astra H was out after the Vec c...... Probably not worth the development considering it was to be replaced soon.....
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    i can thoroughly reccomend one, but it's not cheap....yet it does EVERYTHING that you could ever want it to do....

    www.ilexa.co.uk and look up their VAUX-COM range.. over £500 notes but it's the best you'll get apart from TECH2

    I can reccomend Opelscanner (canbus edition), but its around half the price of Vaux-Com, has less programming features for the new vec's, but is getting updated regularly with new functions. It reads all the fault codes on my vec C.
