It's going into LIMP MOD, this stops damage to the engine, your car needs to go on a reader to find out what code/codes are in the ECU, driving your car can cause more damage, get it checked ASAP.

car has been to vauxhall dealers been on scanner no fault codes coming up , still runs perfect pull up and stop in traffic spanner light comes on and in limp mode switch off start up light gone out drives ok

Hi, there must be a Fault with in the ECU, have you looked at changing this, the other move is when the spanner light comes on and goes into limp mode, don't switch off and start, get the car to a garage or someone who can read the codes whilst in Limp mode, the option is an ECU change.

the answer to my problem was , a valve in the air intake which is a one way valve, this had gone faulty and working two way, vauxhall dealer found it £170 LATER.
