VW Touran 1.6 TDI. Warning light on and engine gone into limp

Customer Question

VW Touran 1.6 TDI. Warning light on and engine gone into limp mode only 2x in 13,000 miles - both times after very damp or cold nights. Fault cleared itself after nearly 100 miles in limp mode this week. Nothing found after quick diagnostic check by private VAG specialist garage. Any ideas please?

Hi Paul . Was any malfunction codes found , if the check engine light comes ON when the engine is running then you must normally have a safed malfunction code in the ECM...If you have a code then we could help you sort out this issue . Rgds Greg
