Thanks for coming back to advise of the fix. Always helpful!


In Topic: Is The Dashboard Figures Accurate? (Miles Left To Empty Tank)

12 October 2014 - 04:54 PM

Mine said 11 miles remaining the other day and I filled it with 51.5 litres! Given it's a 53 litre tank I'd say this is pretty accurate, if not a little conservative. Was quite concerned about running out of fuel tbh, especially being a diesel.


In Topic: Limp Mode Before Turning Engine On

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.

 

Keep us updated!
