To those good folk who offered helpful suggestions, see thread 135839 Nov. 7th, I thank you and I'm pleased to advise the problem part was found and replaced.
An intermittent fault with my 2006 D4D lux saw it going in to limp mode on rough or corrugated tracks.
Turned out it was a worn/faulty accelerator module which is the part attached to the accelerator pedal that sends the drive-by-wire signal; forum contributor RMD hinted this was the area to check.
Not sure if it's kosher to reveal who the switched-on Perth mechanic was that I was eventually recommended to and who nailed it, but I'm happy to if allowed.
Thanks again for your help forumites.

Thanks for getting back to the forum with the fix.

I suspect your previous thread would be still active, and a similar response there may help people in the future.

I'd give the name of the business, plenty of others do when they've had good service.

Bob Y I also endorse telling people who is the switched on mechanic, it is the switched OFF ones people are trying to avoid.
Some aren't completely switched off, just have a high resistance to understanding anything in their field.

OK Bob, I'm pleased to pass on those details because I've learnt there's a lot more to just having the scanning gear and reading the fault codes; interpretation and experience plays a big part in solving these problems, particularly intermittent ones.

Why start a new thread? Why not put this in your original thread that is already running so it brings closure to that thread - particularly for those searching this issue at a later date.

Sorry William, put it down to my forum inexperience......I've also done as you've suggested after Bob's earlier tip.
Cheers, Shep
