I have also been afflicted with MCSF, and after 30 minutes of driving I get VDC System Failure and the car stalls and the power steering locks up!! I am lucky that this hasn't happened whilst driving round a corner or roundabout!
I too have followed a process of elimination starting with Fuses and Today I got a new high powered Bosch battery installed before I go any further. I got the error codes read before the new battery was installed, the codes are:
P0130 - Lambda 1 signal above cat
P0135 - Preheating resistance 1 above cat
P1607 - Lambda 1 sensor drive up stream
P0100 - Air flow meter
P1670 - Fuel pressure
Also I have a wiring hum behind the dash.
The car drives great, no flat spots,no loss of power until it dies after 30 -40 mins with the VDCSF.
I was hoping for a quick fix with the battery but no luck for me I am afraid. I've got it booked in to see Euan at CP Garage in Dundee on Thursday, i'll post how I get on.
