    Four fault codes, which to attack first against limp-mode?

    Hello All, I'm still in limp mode with my e270 CDI, 2004.

    124 300 td passed out after exertion, won't revive, eating battery.

    I used my 1995 300 diesel to reverse a trailer up a very steep incline and it struggled, though made it over the line, and promptly stopped. I've just popped a fresh battery on it as it wouldn't so much as wink at me after the ordeal, it stated straight up so I gave it a quick run round the...
