    18010 is a fault that seems to come up if the battery was ever run flat, i think this stays until its cleared.

    other fault is this:

    17963/P1555 - Boost Pressure Control: Upper Limit Exceeded

    Possible Symptoms


    • Reduced power output
    • Limp mode
    Possible Causes


    • Boost Pressure too High
    • Hoses/Pipes incorrect connected, disconnected, blocked or leaking
    • Charger Pressure Control defective
      • VNT (variable nozzle turbo): nozzles stuck
    • Solenoid Valve for Boost Pressure Control (N75) defective
    Possible Solutions


    • Check Hoses/Pipes to/between Components
    • Check Solenoid Valve for Boost Pressure Control (N75)
    • Check / Clean / Replace Charge Pressure Control
      • Check / Clean mechanism for variable nozzles
