  • Engine management light

    Had bit of a play this morning with another vxr but as i was driving my engine management light came on and the car went into limp mode. So went into vauxhall and they plugged tech2 into it and the code was a boost pressure sensor?? anybody had anything like this before? The car was warmed up by the time i started to give it some. Got them to clear the fault and it hasnt reappeared since and i have full power again

    Ive had that but it was because i blew the boost hose off giving it boost, do you have a dump valve?

            nah i dont have a dump valve fitted. I did say to them could it be the pipes had come off. but it seems fine at the minute and i did give it some earlier and it was fine. as soon as it comes on again i will be back to vauxhall

                    Do you have the remus exhaust mate? Av had the light come on and a put it down to fuel. if i just stick to v-power its fine and doesnt come on but if a put in bp-ult or tesco 99 it sumtimes comes on, lose no power tho just annoying that it comes on!
