Hi all

So a couple of nights ago I had to run the shop, it's a short drive, I got there everything was fine.

I got back in my car turned it on and it was in limp mode with the check system symbol. I drove around for a bit and it went out of limp mode. But the symbol was still there. The next day I started the car just to check, it seemed fine no limp mode but the symbol was still there. Has anyone experienced this before?

You just need to plug it in and have a diagnostic scan run to understand what code is present.

Yep that’s glow plugs. Most likely you will have a hairline crack in one of your glow plugs but it won’t show up on visual inspection. If you change them please use
Genuine Honda. Aftermarket are known to give errors due to a different resistance value. Car is safe to drive by the way
