I have a 2017...

I have a 2017 BMWX5M50d driving home last night and all of a sudden the car s engine cut the car back to 50kmph and on the speedo where the speed limit is LIMIT came up in orange and the vehicle would go over 50 kmph. After about 500 metres I pulled over and looked up the hand book but nothing there about that situation..when I started up again away it went.What has caused this ?.

Mechanic's Assistant: Will the headlights turn on? Is the battery fully charged?

Yep I had driven 100 miles and had stopped for some grub so was stopped for 1/2 hr and have had no problems today.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '17 BMW?

X5 m50d. 7months old 17,000km

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your X5 yourself? What have you tried so far?

No its 7months old

Hi .
For some reason the engine went into safe mode (limp mode) as the management system had encountered a emission malfunction.
With being new and still on warranty go to the dealer and explain what happened. Then he will hook up a diagnostic scan tool and check for malfunction codes.
Now next time it happens if it does before you get to the dealers stop the car switch off wait 30 seconds the start back up and she will drive normal again .
Need further advice with this issue then please get back to me.
After accepting you can get back to me anytime without any extra charge.
