Hello again - Thank you for your reply -

Im afraid i only just had that due to how my shifts fell so Im sorry about that ..

With this situation you have here , Im afraid its not possible to say exactly what the fault will be at this stage with a degree of certainty - you have done the right thing in arranging a plug in diag test - because the light that is on, is telling you that the main Ecu / computer has logged the fault whatever it is, in its fault memory. Given the ;loss of power - it has also invoked whats called Safe Mode - or Limp Home Mode... this it does to protect the systems while you drive it home - or to a garage.

So thats whats going on - and as to why, you will find that out when the fault codes are retrieved on the plug in test. There are literally hundreds of these codes that can be stored so you cannot guess Im afraid - you have to have that test done to progress with this.

Basic checks should be / can be done first though - checking for any loose / ill fitting pipes - turbo pipes - small bore pipes - electrical connectors to sensors and so on - as anything like that will cause what you have.

Bigger - and common faults with this model inc fuel injector issues - pump faults - turbo faults etc... but again, if you find nothing amiss on the basic checks as above - the diag test will give the fault code/ s - that will direct you directly to the cause of your faults - and that is the way forward on this one now. Let me know how you get on, Im always happy to help more if needed - Make the checks as above though first , then go from there as / if needed -

Let me know if you need anything more on this at all -

Meantime -- Please click on the OK rating to Excellent ratings service for me now, Thank you for that... and you can get back to me anytime if you need / wish..

Best Rgds, MIKE.
