Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Trust you are all well?

Names Carl, 28 and from Handcross, West Sussex.

Drive a 06 mk3 mondeo 2.2 tdci estate and a Honda CRZ. I have mainly joined because of a problem i am having with a car which ill describe in a new thread.

Hope someone can steer me in the right direction with this issue.

It all started when we had the floods recently. i drove through a puddle and the coil light started flashing and the car was then in limp mode.

Got home, switched it off and switched it back on and the car was back to normal.

It was a fairly intermittent fault but now its starting to happen on a daily basis.

The only patterns i am noticing is.

When under power pulling up a hill it goes into limp mode. (not all the time)


I can tell when it will go into limp mode because the fuel gauge will be showing a rapid fuel loss.

For instance: it will say 100 miles remaining then with in a few miles it will say 25 miles remaining. Then the coil light will start flashing, into limp mode. switch car off and on, then ill have 100+ miles in the tank.

Also,if the car has gone into limp mode alot during one day i find the engine management light comes on.
