    Unhappy Limp Home Mode

    Hi all,
    weirdest thing just happened... Went into Kwik-fit to get a new exhaust (the back box and middle part only) and 2 tyres... They did the job... When i went to pick up the car, the electronic engine management light was on and the engine was running in limp home mode. I've taken it to another garage and their fault reader doesn't detect any fault codes on my car... Any ideas?

    Cheers

    make sure your lambda sensor hasnt come unplugged, waggling the exhaust too much in the middle section will cause it to come out because the clips are a bit rubbish, plugs in behind the engine.
