Re: can a toxic fume filter send a megane 2 into limp...
Not directly, but the engine ECM and Transmission TCM are connected, so if the engine is running badly, this will effect on the transmission, and may confuse the TCM and make it go into limp mode.
Hope this helps

IN that event you might also have a check engine warning light or other significant warnings on the dash.
The computer sends the vehicle into limp mode to protect the engine and /or transmission from damage due to a fault or faults it has detected in the system.
You need to get the vehicle to a good workshop where they will scan it for faults and see what other irregularities there are with the driveline operation, in particular the engine.
UNTIL you address the problems and have them fixed the vehicle will stay in limp mode or, in the worst case, the computer may ultimately shut it down altogether and you won't be able to start it again. So have it looked at by a competent ISUZU truck as soon as you can.
Sounds like a fuel delivery problem if it is associated with the low fuel warning light.I wonder if it is fuel gauge isn't really relaying soon enough that you are low on fuel and by the time it does you are running on fumes.it could be a fuel filter that has water ingress or debris from an almost empty tank.who knows?First get the car checked at any garage for the diagnostic error codes that will be stored on the onboard ecu.
this is usually a free service.the limp mode episodes will be recorded by error codes which will pinpoint fuel issues, electrical issues etc.Otherwise you will be trying to go through a fix list that costs you time and money .
