Question about Citroen C

Open Question

C3 1.4HDi 2003 engine light comes on during acceleration at about 50 in fourth, then power is reduced presumably by limp home mode. Error codes P0108 and P0237 are generated. Car can be reset by re-starting until next time it is asked to accelerate continuously for about 6 seconds. Does anyone have any ideas as what might be causing this. Many Thanks

Locate the IP to body harness connector, which may be located in and around the left hand kick panel area or inside the IP. Check to see if there is a water leak into the area and repair as necessary.

SOURCE: car is in

check and see if the traction control light, abs light are on the dash. those things can put your car in a reduction mode, because the computer thinks you are on a skid

16619 -Engine boost condition - Limit not reached. Check intake hoses/ connections for leaks. Check Turbo charger waste gate regulating valve/ waste gate working correctly. Must move freely when accelerating, won't achieve full boost if waste gate sticking open. Check Turbo impeller turning freely, oil feed pipe for turbo can get blocked causing impeller to seize. Engine compact, not easy to access these components.

Hello, Check the wiring at the throttle body on the motor that drives the throttle plate. Wires can be broken inside the insulation or bad contact at the connector.

2003 Chevy Trailblazer engine power lose light come on

Hi Steve , your vehicle has electronic throttle control . I don't know if you are aware of this. The gas pedal have position sensors an a wiring connector with 4-6 wires .these wires are connected to the engine computer . an there is a electric motor on the throttle body assembly , the computer opens an closes the throttle . You probably have codes stored in the engine computer .
Reduced Engine Power Mode When the PCM detects a condition with the TAC system the PCM may enter a reduced engine power mode. Reduced engine power may cause one or more of the following conditions:
Acceleration limiting--The control module will continue to use the accelerator pedal for throttle control; however, the vehicle acceleration is limited.

Limited throttle mode--The control module will continue to use the accelerator pedal for throttle control; however, the maximum throttle opening is limited.

Throttle default mode--The control module will turn off the throttle actuator motor and the throttle will return to the spring loaded default position.

Forced idle mode--The control module will perform the following actions:

Limit engine speed to idle by positioning throttle position, or by controlling fuel and spark if throttle is turned off.

Ignore accelerator pedal input.

Engine shutdown mode--The control module will disable fuel and de-energize the throttle actuator.

What makes the reduced power light come on?

the "brain" of the car has detected a problem and is reducing the power available (limp home mode), get it to a garage and have them scan the odb2 data (or get a odb2 scanner and do it yourself. it will provide a fault code) the fault code will tell why it went to reduced power mode (limp home)

Reduced engine power

Your vehicle seem to have gone into limp home mode. You need to have the fault codes pulled to know what is wrong. Limp mode lets you get home but limits engine output function.

My stabalink trac light came on and the engine light came on saying it was reducing power, it felt sluggish and went about 30 mph.

{: ) The stabiltrak light is just an after effect of the check engine light. When the system detects inconsistencies with the accelerator pedal position and throttle position sensors, it will enter into "Limp Mode", engine power will be reduced and you cannot accelerate normallly as you expected. So that you can LIMP your way back home, or to a nearest service shop. A P2138 code may be set, or its conjunctions. Before you decide to have it serviced, if you have the time, try to disconnect the connector at the accelerator pedal. Check for any backed out terminals. Then reconnect again firmly. When you hear it clicks in, it's firmly seated. Testdrive. If not okay, you do the same thing to the throttle position connector. It's on the side of the throttle body. I hope you get lucky.

The engine light comes on and on the dash it says reduced engine power the truck still runs but has no power 2003 chevrolet silverado

that's often referred to as the "limp home mode". something has failed but it will allow you to at least get home. stop by an autozone (if you are in the states) they will scan the codes for free and either tell you what is wrong or at least give you the code(s). if they can't tell you what it is post it here.
