It won't be that code that's tripped limp mode - its probably a stored code from a previous error. However for you info:

DTC_9601 - Immobilisation [PATS System code] - Key-Code Mismatch from Ignition Transponder (Possible unprogrammed key or read error)

It just happened all of a sudden! I can't get a code scanning it just says no code stored. It's just a cheap vag/obd scanner tho.

Does anyone know where the cam position sensor is on the 1.6tdci c-max? Cheers

On the rear of the cylinder head to my knowledge, left hand side (drivers) as you look into the engine bay. Bit of a bugger for access due to the location of the scuttles etc on the C-Max and the fact that the rear of the engine is tucked underneath them.
