Hey Gavinw2312,

It looks like its the Boost regulator valve has gone bad, before you replace it though, check all wiring connectors to make sure they are hooked up and in good condition, let me know.

Hi Gavinw2312,

The boost valve is where I would look next, the trouble code kind of point us in that direction, let me know how it goes.

Can we clear the codes, drive the car, as soon as the light comes back on, stop and read the codes, I want to see which code is prominent, also the exhaust cannot leak so that must be fixed also, let me know :-)

Hi ken I have done as requested codes that came up before I cleared them are as follows
18080 coolant fan control 1 open/short to grd (intermittent) P1672
17957 boost pressure regulator valve (n75) open/short to ground - intermittent P1549
19461 relay for high output pre heating - coolant (j360) short to plus P3005 intermittent
17563 manifold pressure sensor G71 short with power P1156
19459 relay for low output pre heating of coolant J359 short to plus

I have cleared all the codes and drove the car until turbo shut off again and then checked code reader again
1st time was
17957 boost pressure regulation valve (n75) open or short to ground (p1549)
18080 coolant fan control 1 open or short to ground (P1672) intermittent
I then cleared the codes and done a second run until the turbo stopped again
came back with 17957 (P1549) and 17563 (P1156) really don't no what to do now

It sounds like we have a wiring harness problem with all this shorted to ground problems, especially the 17957 boost pressure regulation valve (n75) open or short to ground, can we inspect the harness where it routes through the engine and bay, including the computer to see if wiring is damaged, if nothing can be found a pin to pin check of the harness is needed, here is a diagram to get you started.

Let me know, Best, Ken

Its possible, the code did come up but wasn't there for the next round, hard to say.
