So now I know what the EDC light means.

And it’s on.

When the standard EML went off fine I didn’t think it would have a second engine management light.

Would agree- our maxxus had a quarter of a million miles on it and still cruised at well above the ton... got my last 3 points in it... even loaded with a Jag, you could forget yourself and have 3 figures on the speedo. 2.5 VM engine innit. Dash is horribe, cupholders are shite, speakers are shite, where the radio is, is shite handbrakes are shite, Daewoo steering wheel is shite but **** me they drive well when good. Genuine parts are bloody cheap too.WP_20151008_004.jpg

I think between threads that start "I'm in this city, I need to buy something today" and random fibreglass tat, I've just remembered why I joined Autoshite all those years ago. Nicely bought! Hope you can adjust the limiter with a suitable precision instrument/BFOH.

 

Also, make your money back with some Royal Mail stickers and go round all the post boxes with a crowbar scooping up £20 notes in cards from grandma.

Engine also used in LXT taxi, Jeep liberty and Chrysler Voyager. If your Delphi doesn't have LDV, I'd try those cars and see if it detects it.

Has it got the ghosting of the original Royal Mail livery on it? On Ex rm vans it usually sticks out a mile and I'm strange but I wouldn't mop it as it would get rid of that link to its ragged to death past.


My yellow MM1000 'post office telephones' van showed sticker text >> petrol soaked rag had that away ;)

When Arthur_foxhake turned my xantia down, it flew through the mot but then ran not very well until I turned it back up, kept stalling when I dipped he clutch to change down a gear.

Turn stuff up and see what happens? Good old fashioned service? Or hold it in 3rd and see if it'll do 80,that'll decide it

I thought these were fairly oldschool, how would the limiter work?

When I did work experience from school at a haulage firm, one of the first things I learned was which fuse to take out when you were late to the MOT appointment. All a bit more complex than that now, but I'm wondering if these would be as easy to defeat.

 

Or is it a bit of string around the speedo and under the brake? If the needle goes past 75 it tugs on the string and puts the brakes on? :)

I reckon the limiter will be in the ECU. Delphi might talk to these and you might be able to adjust the limiter, but often you can only go lower.

Slowness.

Temp gauge doesn’t work but the heaters do get warm.

Just thought, those could be connected. Temp sender died, ECU throwing EDC warning light on, ECU over fuelling (cause assuming really cold) and maybe even in limp.

99% of them were sold to either Royal Mail or to extra tight local councils and schools as minibuses so I would wager the majority are limited.

 

Plus with it being a modern there will be fuckery with keys and immo boxes and whatnot. 

 

There is an outside chance it can be changed in diagnostics eg Delphi as mentioned, otherwise it's a remap job.

Minibuses would be limited to 62. I'm struggling to see what the issue is with a van that has a limiter set beyond the speed limit myself...

What revs is it when it's doing 75mph? I'm wondering if it's actually limiting to 3k rpm because of limp mode. Or that a boost leak (or knackered engine) means it doesn't have enough spare power available to get above the wind resistance and drag.
