I'm back! I have been out every day in the car And I actually mean just 'in' the car as I can't drive anywhere in the current climate. But I like to sit in it and get to grips with the satnav, android auto, getting it to navigate on the big screen to charge stations i may one day visit.

So far, so great! Just a shame we can't really drive anywhere other than the...
OK, no engine, but you get the drift.
Pulling out of a junction, the amber 'check engine' light came on, the warning triangle, and audible warning and it went into limp home. No acceleration. I pulled over, cycled the ignition. The audible warning went but the lights and loss of power remained...
Made this topic as we seemed to hijack JJs e208 project topic for general discussion.
