Having some issues with a Mercedes Sprinter I recently purchased. It keeps going into limp mode whenever I reach about 60mph. I have an ODB tool, it's a cheap one but it's giving me the code P2263.

I have so far replaced two intercooler hoses, both of which were clearly leaking but the problem persists. I had another look to see if I could see any more leaks but I couldn't. I did however see something that looks as though it could be a sensor but it's just dangling on two cables and isn't plugged into anything. (see pic)

I can tell this van has been in an accident at some point and repaired on the cheap. The panel in front of the intercooler was a different colour originally and has been re-sprayed and the intercooler itself is held in place by a cable tie so I thought that maybe someone had fitted a different intercooler that didn't have a place for the sensor but having looked at pictures of intercoolers online I can't see any that you could plug this part into. Does anyone know what this part is for and where it should go?

260,000 miles.

Any help appreciated.

I had to delete your picture as it was way too large and was making the thread impossible to read. Please reduce the size by at least half before posting it again.

The sensor you showed is looking like an intake air temp sensor. That likely goes into a hole in the intake snorkel hose.
