I recently bought a 2010 S-Max 2l TDI (163) Powershift Auto, 30k miles on clock.

The first day I bought it the problem first appeared. Driving approx 70mph and accelerating the traction control light came on and then off after a few seconds. After that it went into limp mode and wouldn't accelerate past 75mph. Restarting the car resolved the limp mode. As the car was in the last few weeks of Ford Warranty It went to the dealers who said there was a low battery voltage code so trickle charged the battery.

I then drove it for 800 miles without problems. Then the exact same thing happened again. Took it back to Ford who said no fault codes stored. They suggested changing the fuel filter which was done. After another 150 miles the same thing happened again! It drives normally at all other times.

Any suggestions as to the problem? Thanks
