  1. Hi Guys! I'm new here and swedish to, so please bare with me I have a 451 from 2007 with the 84hp engine. Suddenly the car wont accelerate, if i put the car into neutral the engine respond like it should but as soon as i switch to "Drive" the engine go to idle. Iv'e tried to disconnect the battery and after a couple of minutes the car runs like normal until next time i stop, then i goes back to the behavior again. I think that this is som kind om "Limp Mode" to protect the engine or something else, could that be true? I've attached an OBD2-meter and the result is a new fault code (see attachment C1220) The fault codes regarding the lambda has been there for a time now so i don't think that they are the one connected to this problem. So now my question! That specific fault code is something with ABS as far as i can see, is there any well known errors regarding the ABS system in the 451? Note! It's cold and snowing here in Sweden at the moment, so the ESP-system works over time and i wonder if this could be an error connected to a sensor or something similar.
