My car limps!

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.

Could be a bad sensor (ice covered or corroded?) or possibly a cracked reluctor ring on one of the rear wheels if it's seen a lot of winter driving.

Thanks jwight 

I’ve had similar problems with my Saab and it was the abs ring as well so hopefully it will solve the problem.
