It went in to limp mode ( get me home ) , the battery should be pushing around 14.5V with engine running, If it doesnt push enough volts out the car thinks theres a problem and goes in to "shit lets get home please Im not well" mode.

I stepped in a plate of Pasta the other day - now I have to worry about my Carbonara footprint!
