first ever engine light and limp home mode
#1
well, after having a new AUX belt, the engine light was on in my van, had no choice, had to drive it, it drove fine for 300 miles UNTIL it was left to idle for 5 minutes, then the fans came on at full speed, it was so loud, and noticed an extra light on with the engine check light

went to drive away and had nothing felt like I was driving a 5hp van, and the top speed when I could get to it, was 49mph.....

well off to Our garage man, who plugged into the car and read the faults, DPF voltage too high.... and some other stuff.


turns out the DPF was panicking because the guy had knocked off the sensor plug for the DPF so it wasn't knowing what was accruing.... then it sat at idle and it panicked...


all fixed now, but I'm sure we'll be billed for the computer time, I'll pass that bill on to the fridge service guy Tongue
