Have a look at the linkage atttached to the turbo and check for a seized or badly worn joint that's not allowing the linkage to return

Sometimes vehicles left standinlg and often low mileage motorhomes suffer from the turbo waste gate spindle sticking, this would result in the problem you have now and put the warning light on.

First thing I would do is disconnect the short rod between the vacuum actuator and the turbo itself, then you may find that the spindle is part seized, usually this can be freed off with WD40 a bit of jiggling and a little brute force !

I hope this helps

Thanks for posting that Spanner, I think it will be of interest to others, so to save it getting lost I have posted it in the Factsheets Section

Air inlet hose

Post by johndean on Sat Feb 11, 2017 2:02 pm

Hi
Check the large air inlet hose from the air cleaner, these can collapse in wards causing the light to come on.
I have sometimes made a coil from a length of brake pope to keep it open.
Just be a little careful here as this type of problem can cause the engine to draw oil from sump into air intake and the engine running out of control. ( runaway )
