LTE, I'd say clear them all and re-scan in a week or so as they could well be historic codes which were never cleared.

 

You'll then know which ones (if any) re-appear after a week of driving/until it next goes into limp mode.

Pretty sure these are the same codes that I've been getting for a year now, a cheap Bluetooth dongle always returned codes P0230 and P0243 after clearing which suggest the same faults as VCDS, albeit not quite accurate.

Ford mondeo 2.0 tdci on a 54 plate. My dad said it's been a bit stiff going through the box for past couple of days when cold until today when he went to skeg and rang to tell me it had jammed in reverse. Is this going to be linkages or gearbox failure? He's talking of bridging it!


6 speed? Have you checked the oil level? Could be the beginning of the clutch/DMF failing. You can bypass the linkage to see if it's failed, the mechanism sits under the battery on top of the box, see if that allows you to select the gears.

I've got round to buying a cheapo OBD cable for my Ibiza in an attempt to fix the bugger. VCDS lite is giving me these codes:
19464 - Camshaft Position Sensor (G40) - Signal out of range P3008
18027 - Glow Plug Relay (J52): Open or Short to Ground P1619
17932 - Fuel Pump Relay (J17): Open or Short to Ground P1542 - Intermittent
17957 - Boost Pressure Regulation Valve (N75): Open or Short to Ground P1549 -- Intermittent

ATD engine code.

The car starts fine, glow plug relay can be heard clicking on and off and started fine in cold weather, fuel pump primes fine, all it does is go into limp mode at random (and usually at the worst) times. Sometimes I can chug along up a hill at 50 in 5th without problems, other times it'll go into limp mode just as I'm about to go on the A47 in the outside lane. Any pointers would be appreciated.

Stay away from A47 outside lane seems the answer

Might fail for fuel leak if there are puddles around the injectors and on the rocker cover, might also fail a smoke test if the seals are badly gone. Leaky injectors are also costing you power and MPG and will get worse. Refurbed injectors and new sealing washers are the fix, but budget for at least £300.

Do as dave says first though, because leaky return lines will only cost a few quid to sort.

Edit - it's hard to start? It's the injectors.



Thanks, that's really useful. If i'm looking at £300 to sort it, it's just not worth it. I still need to replace the alternator and will need at least a couple tyres and front brakes and pads to get through MOT in May. Pretty sure i can get a better replacement for the £500+ i'm looking at.

I'll still check the return lines though - you never know!

I'll see if the cam sensor code comes back today, the other three suggest ECU damage according to my Google-fu. If it comes back I'll get it retimed at a specialist and buy a deimmobilised ECU.

No.

 

They only gave up minitel and fax machines a couple of years ago - integrated, public-accessible, useful websites are still probably a decade away.

I'm doing my first collection thread tomorrow (losing my virginity so to speak) collecting a £100 Mercedes from 120 miles away (WCPGR).

As I want to do it live, I would like to add photos as I go, but try as I might I can't seem to add any, either on the mobile or full site. I'll use a Samsung S5 on Android.

Anyone give me easy instructions on how I can do this? Thank you.

Right, I've taken my Ibiza on a 140 mile run, driven in a spirited manner and it went into limp mode three times. Only threw two codes:
17932 - Fuel Pump Relay (J17): Open or Short to Ground P1542 - Intermittent
17957 - Boost Pressure Regulation Valve (N75): Open or Short to Ground P1549 -- Intermittent

Dodgy earth somewhere or ECU malfunction? More searching online does suggest it's a bad ECU especially with the ATD engine.

The n75 valves are common for failing on that era VAG stuff, I'd look at that before the ECU.

Could be dry joints or an iffy output device in the ECU though, both the fuel pump relay and the n75 valve are fairly high current outputs, they might even come out of the same chip tbh

Ecu's don't give much trouble so it is more likely to be anything else first. In 30 years in the trade I doubt I have fitted more than half a dozen ecu;s  Has it been read with a decent code reader and checked with live data. A lot of cheap readers will give wrong codes and no live data. If you still think ECU send it to BBA Reman for testing as they have been reconning ecu's for years and know their stuff.

This car doesn't have a lone N75 valve, it's an all-in-one jobbie vacuum block which runs multiple things. The two things must share a common ground as the two codes are always thrown at the same time.

I've checked it with VCDS Lite and that's what it spat out, but I am by no means a professional. I don't think there is much point of sending it off for diagnosis as a replacement ECU is only £50 on eBay then again it could be of dubious quality. I say it's ECU because that's all I can find regarding these codes at the same time.

Yeah you'd need to knock the immo off the new ecu, it wouldn't work if you just plugged it in.
