Hi
I picked the car up,all seemed fine,then it went into limp mode (red circle looking like a gear link with an I in the middle). Switched off and back on,seemed fine for 10 miles then same again!!!
I have had the car serviced,they plugged in a reader but no fault codes stored,also had some dpf cleaner put into the tank and now having the egr blanked off
It is 06 06 Focus TDCi 1.6 with 100k and FSH,no black smoke and runs lovely when not in limp mode
So,not too sure

Cheers
John

Hi and Welcome to the Forums.

Have you tried taking the car for a good 15 minute 4th gear 70 MPH drive on the motorway it might help clear it out , or it could be a host of things including DPF.
