No there are no management lights on and I have a diesel. Also there are no management lights on when it is in limp mode.

Hi Lee

Please explain what is happening when you go into "Limp mode".

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
As you go to pull away as normal the the vehicle goes into like a half stall then the vehicle loses power you put you foot to the floor with no response

Hi Lee .

Greg
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
It was serviced in November with a full comprehensive service
Expert:  indy-tech replied 2 years ago.
Hi Lee .

Was it after the service you started having this problem ??

Greg
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Mainly yes it happened a couple of times before but put that down to driver error. If you put the clutch down turn of and restart then problem solved
Expert:  indy-tech replied 2 years ago.
Did you have the management system checked for malfunction codes

Greg
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
No I don't think so I have booked it back in at the garage for them to sort it out.

Thanks for your help
