In Topic: Limp Mode Before Turning Engine On

13 September 2014 - 04:34 PM

Get a code reader on it, but mine did something similar, at least on startup. If you gave the glow plugs chance to think, it went into limp mode immediately. Just turning it over quickly and it didn't seem to notice.


As the 1.6 TDI (mine) uses the plugs for DPF regeneration however, mine had a habit of coming back on after a few miles driving. New glow plugs in the end sorted it.


Code reader will tell you for certain though. I used a bluetooth one and an android phone.

I'd look at giving it a nice long blast on the motorway in 4th tbh, now that it can regenerate properly.


Agreed, mine is staying legal also.

Sounds like a right pain. I remember when mine went into limp mode once, going up a hill on Woodhead Pass. Quite scary.

Question - is it even possible for these things to smoke, what with the DPF? Or will the DPF just clog?

Changing the pollen filter is an absolute nightmare. Took me ages, and ached for days afterwards. Never again.
