"Limp Home" mode
Hi all - picked up a 2003 146 2.4 Sportwagon from Ireland at the weekend. Felt like turbo not coming in at all - goes flat at 3000 revs, and engine warning light comes on, but goes off after a minute or so. There is also an ABS warning, permanently on (a missing sensor, the dude tells me).
Question is, have read a good few posts on here which mention "limp home" mode. I can dig the concept, and it sounds like it would give the same performance as I have been getting, but is there a specific error message which lets you know you're in that mode? Otherwise, how do I know my turbo isn't simply knackered (split pipe sounds favourite, from what I've read here), and would a failed ABS system put me into limp home mode?
Thanks guys. Love the car, even with the fault! Andy
