Hi
you need to get yoyr car to a local trusted garage and have the diagnostic system scanned. The car is in limp mode because a sensor has either indicated a problem or a part has blocked or failed. The exhaust will glow because the fueling is all upset.
It may well be an airflow sensor, coolant sensor fault which will clog up the upstream lambda and put the engine into limp.
Dont guess...get it scanned...it will be much cheaper.
Cheers
Roger

No power over 40 mph


Known as Limp mode.you have to get a garage to run diagnostics in this scenario.it could be anything from fuel ,electrical exhaust and any fault will be stored in the ECU on board .the engine management light usually flashes when cars go into limp mode.
its the yellow icon on dashboard.one time I had an electronic throttle linkage play up every time it rained and a few hard pumps put the car back out of limp mode.your next move is to get it to a garage who can run on board diagnostics to pinpoint the cause via the error codes that show during the tests.limp mode is to protect further damage to engine but allow you to get it yo a garage or home.

I have a Mercedes S class diesel saloon built in 2007 and the car has developed a fault wherby the engine management comes on (but not always). When it comes on it sometimes goes into limp mode and...


engine manage lights and limp mode are activated from the engine AND the transmission faults
may be the mechanic is looking in the wrong area for the fault as it could be a TCM or wiring problem in the transmission
discuss it with MB headquarters technicians as the local shop may not have the experience to fix problems

Engine managment light flashes (glow plugs light)


the car is going into limp mode due to an engine management fault. have to check what the fault is with a code reader. if the milage is high 100,000+ could be a turbo fault (overboosting), as this will put the car into limp mode.

Mondeo diesal 2002, glow plug light


Hi

The glow plug coming on on the Diesel Mondeo is an engine management fault indicator. The car goes into "limp mode" when this happens or in other words safety mode is triggered. This explains your loss of power.

To find the cause of this light coming on - the car will have to go on an OBD scanner at a service shop which will read the codes stored in the cars computer and give you an answer as to what is causing the fault to show.

Hope this helps - please remember to rate my answer as ratings are important to me as an expert on the site. Thank You.

Jaguar glow plug problem


The Glow plug coming on, and the car going into limp home mode, is a default safety feature that occurs when the engine management system picks up any kind error message from the many sensors now used on the car.
I've found the glow plug light problem with my Jag, it was the air filter. Apparently Jaguar servicing change it every 3rd service (not a good idea). I changed mine, it is a new car. I had the EPR valve cleaned and a major diagnostic carried out by a local garage (who had the Jag diagnostic software). It turns out I also need a new Turbo; the actuator is sticking (£759.00 plus 3 hours labour). But hey, the main limp home mode problem is fixed and I can drive my Jag confident it will accelerate when press the gas.
