First off, I would like to say Hi to all forum members.
I have been reading these forums for a little while (in the background). And now have an A3 170 s-line of my own. Some of you will be familiar with the car, as it is Jordans old motor (smudge_don), yes the one that had the TT-RS brakes.
a few days ago the DPF light came on, so following the instructions in the manual, I kept the revs above between 2000 and 3000rpm on my dual carriageway drive to Uni today (a good 20 minuites of 50mph in 4th at around 2500rpm).
Next, the amber engine management light came on and the heater plug symbol is flashing. The car will not rev above 3000rpm and is very sluggish (im guessing this is limp mode).
My question is, what are my options to get the car back to normal ? Rang Audi, and they want £114 +vat to tell me whats wrong.
I have a hand held code reader / clearer. But i dont have VAGCOM (yet).
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
