    Vectra ZC 2005 3.2L V6 Auto Engine Z32SE

    Have a few issues with my veccy going into limp mode.
    Can anybody recommend a good diagnostic tecnician?
    Looking at some UK opel specialist on youtube, and the message I keep getting is a good technician can narrow down the fault through the various screen tests.
    I need someone who has good technical diagnostic skills with the appropriate software for the Vectra petrol 3.2 V6.
    Holden have been pretty useless and cant diagnose the issue.
    Error code P1895 Pd B2aaa Pd.
    These error codes were picked up on an Autolink CAN OBDII scanner, purchased from ebay.

    The problem is intermitent, when the error codes are removed everything is fine for a day a week and then its back in limp mode.
    Thought it was the transmission, but no.
    Changed a sensor in the auto, fresh fluid but this hasnt fixed the issue.
    Auto fluid was fine no signs or smells of burnt fluid.

    Airflow meter. Try cleaning it first before replacing

    Thanks for the MAF sensor cleaning/replacement tip. No luck with this suggestion. Having spent a huge amount of time on the U.K. forums and locally, I still haven't found a solution for my Veccy based on the many recommendations that worked for the individual problems described online. Anyway, I think a suggestion from a Holden nut may have solved the problem. He told me that he had encountered the same problem in Holdens he had owned. (Limp mode problems on an intermittent basis).
    The problem in his situation was the gear selector switch (I have an auto). I did some fiddling under the selector cover and found a couple of wires, unplugged two connectors and reseated them and then took it for a run.
    So far so good. It's been over a week now without going into limp mode, previously it could be a couple of times a day and then nothing for days and then every day. It was so bad I stopped driving it until I learnt of the gear selector switch issue.
    This may not be the answer for everyone but for my situation it looks like it might be a winner, fingers crossed!!
    I just wanted to share this, as this intermittent problem has been driving me mad, spent so much time researching and trying a whole lot of different suggestions to no avail.
    This just might work for you if you have been experiencing similar limp mode problems (my error code was 1895). As I understand, 1895 is a transmission error code, so with the selector possibly not sending/receiving the signal correctly the transmission gets an error message to protect it (limp mode)?????

    Wow, good to hear. You replaced a sensor so maybe you didn't plug it in correctly ?
