Brake Boost Vacuum System Fault - Safe to drive?
The Mrs came home today saying her 1.6 was running badly. Did a scan and the following 2 things came up:
2 Faults Found:
17887 - Brake Boost Vacuum System
P1479 - 002 - Mechanical Failure - Intermittent
18669 - Oxygen (Lambda) Sensor B1 S1
P2237 - 008 - Pump Current Open Circuit - Intermittent
Readiness: 1000 0101
Took it for a drive and when I pressed the brakes at low speed, the battery light quickly flashed on the dash and the car felt like it was about to stall. Performance felt odd as well, like it was running rich or something.
Any ideas? Is it safe to drive? Is the Brake Boost and Lambda sensor faults related?
Car was fine yesterday. Oddly enough I did a scan to check it yesterday as it had just had some accident repair work done (some fool in a bus sideswiped it a few weeks back).
It may be a coincidence but it has rained here heavily today so has something got wet and shorted out?
