Intermittent limp mode no codes shown

My 62 plate 2.2 4x4 has started to flash the engine management light & drop into limp mode / kill all power.

No DTC codes when scanned with garage scanner (but not dealer scanned yet) or my vaux tool.

Only happens when going sub 30 ish slowing down going down hill on over run.
Often when turning.

Even scanning whist it is happening shows no codes.

Live data does show "Vehicle Stability System malfunction"

Suggestions?

This is going to sound crazy.

After buying a better code tool I found that the number 1 glow plug was faulty.

Changing it has stopped the limp mode / no power issues & the other warning has gone.

How that works I have no idea.

Er one that might get me a telling off for mentioning it in this group but basically an upgraded rip off of a dealer tool.

Unlike the ebay versions this
a, works
b, has support
c, works on up to 2018 vehicles

Ok this has now developed into a big fault.

Car was applying front drivers side brake, initially thought it was sticking.

Then fault code for abs control module unit came up and would not clear.

Had unit sent away but came back no fault found.

Waiting for it to be refitted to see what other codes might now come up.
