Default V50 anti skid and engine issue at same time

Hi all,
Ive had my v50 1.6 diesel for a year and its never missed a beat.
Yesterday the messages Anti-skid system service required and engine service required, came up at the same time.
The car went into limp home mode and is running as if on three cylinders.
The engine management light and the anti skid light are both Amber.
Any suggestions would be greatly apprenticed before I have to take to the stealers.

Possibly worth getting the alternator/ battery checked first. V50' s are prone to various fault codes with low or fluctuating battery voltages.
If not will need your codes read.

I had the motherlode of errors: anti skid disabled, air bags disabled, engine service required, limp home mode, ABS disabled, the lot. Then the battery died (due to a short in the alternator).

1 new alternator later - everything is OK (except maybe the battery which was deeply discharged - but it's holding up for now).

As Ian said - check the alternator & battery.

Hi, Ive been have a look at the car today, and borrowed a snap on ethos code reader.
The alternator is giving out 14.9 volts. Is that a bit on the high side. Ive not had any battery issues.
One injector is defiantly knackered, I moved it from cylinder 3 to 4 and the code reader has changed to show that. No difference in engine running when injector is disconeccted
Will a dodgy injector trip the car into limp home mode.

The anti lock brakes code of U040100 says invalid data received from engine control module what does that mean and will this trip the limp home mode.

As both these faults appeared at the exact same time while driving, could one fault be causing the other codes to pop up.

Change your injector and both messages will be gone.
