    Angry I Hate My Car

    Last week car went into limp mode for some bizare reason, had a test done and the code was pulled up needed a new air flow meter.
    Anyway ordered part £100 and got everything fiited total bill £126.44, picked the car up and I thougth yes all fitted.
    But the garage for some reason could not reset the codes and yes im in limp mode AGAIN.
    So I rang the garage back up and they told me to get the codes clear and it should solve the problem????? Is this tru.

    Also on another negative note they disconnected my battery now I have no radio and no eletric windows.

    Any reasons why my windows aint working>????

    the windows will need to have the auto open close reset- hold them in the up position with the button held in for 10 seconds and the fully down postion for 10 seconds then the at function should work

    The windows aren't working at all?

    As for clearing the codes stopping limp home doesn't sound right. Its a dti isn't it? Are all of the boost pipes whole with no splits etc.

    Could also be a dirty boost sensor/egr valve

    I'd say something needs cleaned, just my personal opinion.

    Do you have to drive the car to get limp home or does it just happen

    If you keep the revs below say 2500 and the speed below 30mph will the car not go into limp mode?
