Hi to all,
520d 2011 plate
engine cut off suddenly on dual carriageway as accelerated after a roundabout. Brought car to stop never started again. Was carrying wife and toddler on way to seaside could have been real worse if cars behind on higher speed motorway.
Error message said fuel supply/ max peformance not avail drive at mod speed - couldnt for obvious reason.
had to call recovery who could not fix it and towed to dealer
dealer now repaired - swapped 'ekta control unit' as faulty and battery. They said the fuel supply control unit had an issue.
Above happened on 8 May this year.
Received back allegedly repaired and noticed car has now lost that quick injection of turbo when i used to slighlty tap the accelerator. It'd stopped doing it and takes that second more to shoot off if you know what i mean? it's like that pull you feel from the front of the car well that has gone and it just feels weaker when pressing the gas. Is this normal? Any ideas? Will it resolve in time - only repaired yesterday. Please help.
Above noticed about 3 days after getting car back.
This happened yesterday:
So had the same thing as original post happened again after repair from dealer!!! Engine cut off and said 'drive train' drive at moderate speed. could not though as complete cut off and not restarting but turning over when try to restart. Once again carrying wife and 2 year old daughter. We are so lucky it only happened as we go to our destination and not on the motorway! We got to the Ikea car park.
So recovery guy came to car park and car had been left for about an hour and when he tried the car restarted again. Think that's good? Think again so decided would drive to dealership*and he followed behind in case happened again. And guess what it happened again after only driving for 10 minutes this time we are on the first lane of motorway doing about 60mph! Car cuts off again completely and says drivetrain as above but also says fuel supply. Pulled over luckily into hard shoulder he followed and towed to dealership. I have left it there. What if this happened in 3rd lane I cannot imagine at higher speed?*Clearly they have not fixed it right? Spoke to them and they said it could be a new fault and not something that needed repairing when first brought although symptoms exactly the same and same fault reported on screen. I mean they changed the battery and fuel supply control unit so they should have figured it out right? anyone had this problem who can help? I mean this is really bad because I had done a long distance journey on the motorway the week before again with wife and daughter and made it there and back but it could have happened during then!
Please can someone help? Any ideas and advice very much appreciated.
