Did you use the interface to cancel limp mode
you know its in limp mode

what was the printout of the diag

its aok to post i have a problem and this is the issues
but in limp mode you have no choice but too use software too fix the ecu etc to reset the mode fault etc

i think its the cold start system with air has an issue

if the glow plug light is flashing and the glow plugs are ok then its a sensor problem and a needed reset of the mcu to clear the error and retest...

from cold...!!

warm engine is prob aok
something air related

My skoda superb has engine light on in dashboard and the glow plugs light flashing sometimes with lose of power.can you help my with a good answer


On the skoda the coil lights flashing indicate a engine fault , normaly it will be a fuel fault something as little as fuel filter issue or could be boost fault , split vac pipe or intercooler pipe , easyest way to get to the fault is by putting it on a computer to get the fault code that put the light on , the loss of power will be the ecu putting the car in to limp home mode

I have Ford Focus 1.0 EcoBoost 2012. I have experienced an intermittent problem where I get a loss of power (turbo not working)and car goes into "limp" mode. No warning light appears and the car


thats sounds like a possible boost control solenoid failure.when the boost solenoid fails it wont activate a warning light and because of the lack of boost the engine computer fail safe feature will put it in limp mode in order to keep the driver from harming the engine

Flashing glow plug light no throttel just idle


This actuator is a very common problem for the Diesel Jaguar X-Type & S-Types Built between 2003 and 2007.

The fault causes the flashing glow plug light to appear and the engine to go in to "limp mode" the problem normally starts out as an intermittent fault but then becomes more permanent.

These Actuators control the waste-gate on your turbo and are not available separately from the dealer, you have to buy the complete turbo for a small fortune.

* I am not affiliated in any way with this company.

A company can rebuild your own turbo actuator and/or supply replacement units from stock when available both options come with an unlimited mileage Lifetime warranty*.

97 vw sharon tdi has full power to start with when driving but under load power drops of as if the turbo stoped working switch it of and on and it goes ok for a wee bit and does the same thing again


In your case the turbocharger is responsible for engine losing power.
The car goes in "limp home" mode!!!
After scan the EDC-15P engine control unit with a VAS, VAG or KTS -BOSCH diagnosis tool you will find this: Fault code: P1557-Turbo Boost pressure control exceeded
1. Engine stopped and ignition switch off. Check all pneumatic connections and hoses between turbocharger actuator = pressure unit for boost-pressure control, boost-pressure control solenoid valve, vacuum reservoir, EGR control solenoid valve, intake-manifold flap solenoid valve, EGR valve with throttle - part of intake manifold. Also the vacuum connection between tandem pump and brake booster. If you find something wrong replace parts. If not go to step 2.
2. Extract the hose of the turbocharger actuator = pressure unit for boost-pressure control part of turbocharger. Instead of the original hose you must place another 1 meter long hose with the same inside diameter, and then you check to inspire yourself the air from the other one extremity of this hose. The mechanical connecting rod of the turbocharger actuator must have a smooth and whole motion. If you can do that with your mouth, then you must replace the boost-pressure control solenoid valve. If you can not reach this with your mouth, then you go to step 3.
3. This is the most difficult work. The problem is that the soot particles deposits inside the turbocharger plugging the variable nozzle geometry mechanism = adjustable vanes of the turbine. If the turbocharger actuator is not able to adjust the turbine vanes the charge air pressure increase too much and ECU (engine control unit) go in "limp mode" = engine protection software. As a result the "limp home" mode engine still running until you turn the engine off (ignition switch off) and back on when the "limp mode" is deactivated, but the fault still remain in ECU memory!
4. You must be able to extract the turbo out from the engine. Then disassemble the turbocharger, clean inside adjustable vanes mechanism, and refit all in reverse order.


Good Luck!

Hi, vw experts, my engine light diagnosis was "turbo charger overboost" what might this mean? also, glow plug #4 cylinder circuit open. would this mean a faulty glow plug or faulty harness?...


First problem: "turbo charger overboost"
In your case the turbocharger is responsible for engine losing power.
The car goes in the "limp home" mode!!!

Second problem: "glow plug #4 cylinder circuit open"
Swap another glow plug in good condition by another cylinder, and see if the fault still occurs. If not, then this mean a faulty glow plug. If yes, then there is a bad harness.


Please do rate my response. Thanks!

Audi A6 3.0 tdi Quattro 2005, glow plug light comes on, limp mode


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.

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.

Diagnostic fault p2263


It sounds like the intake on your turbo is not opening up like it should. I recommend you to get it look at more closely or get it replaced.

When driving hard or trying to go over 70 mph, car goes into limp mode! A light comes on dash stating take to dealer, also the glow plug light keeps flashing and have loss of power! My car is a 2005 '55...


check it in eobd as well as vw specific what scanner did you use to check for the fault code ? because when that light comes on it has logged a code,it could be anything from a brake light switch to the vains sticking in the turbo
