    VW Crafter limp mode

    Hi there. My name is Deryck and I'm new on this forum.yay. I'm a proudly owner of a 2012 Crafter, but in the last few weeks on the dash i get two flashing lights: emission control lamp and engine management lamp. I used a cheap chinese obd scanner and I got P261A and P2BAC (this one cannot be deleted). I asked a mechanic and he told me it is the secondary coolant pump (he used his diagnostic tool to tell me that), changed it, problem persists. As I was sayn in the title the van is going into limp mode, no power.

    Any ideas on what it could be? Thank you very much and have a great holiday period.

    You need a proper code read doing to give us some VAG specific codes.

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    Halo + welcome.

    I mean you have a electrical water pump for EGR cooling. This pump don´t works (1st fault) so the EGR (2nd) fault is deactivated...
