Re: Limp Mode (In A Dream)

when something bad happens to certain systems...ecu, or even some sensors..your ecu will go into a safe mode, min fuel, min boost, etc etc, just enuff to get you home

Re: Limp Mode (01silverGTI)

thats interesting, what happens to me is, after my drive home from work, its a 45 min drive, when I get home and I let the car run on idle for more than one min, the coolant temp rises and the car feels weaker, I have the right amount of coolant in there, but its weird, I posted a topic about this once, is that safe mode. When I try to drive with the high temp, It feels really really weak, but after 30 sec it feels normal again????

Re: Limp Mode (Bozzza)

you would KNOW if you were in limp mode...CEL lights, etc your temp shouldn't go up, though i would have your temp sensors checked, or your fan switch, the weakness could be from your fans turning on
