    Engine management light .. why ?

    Morning,

    My car was serviced 1 month ago all OK everything fine ... since the last few days of rain the engine managment light comes on just after i start the car it stays on for about 3 0r 4 mins then goes off ....

    Strangely enough its only happened since the rain and if i stop at a shop etc and return to the car it starts fine no light .... is it a case of something getting a little damp ??

    The engine isnt reacting any different when the light is on or off and there is no change in performance.

    (And no new noises)

    Could be any of the numerous engine sensors, speak to your dealer and get it diagnosed with Tech-02.

    As stated ... it needs Tech2 to get the fault code and diags from the ECU. Dealer job I'm afraid
