    Engine managment light..HELP

    Just been out and on my way home as i accelerated the car jolted and now the engine management light is on aswell as the traction control light.

    And when i start my engine the revs drop off and it cuts out unless i put my foot on the accelerator then it drops to 500 revs then the exhaust emission light goes out and then it ticks over as usuall but tc and engine management light is still on.

    Any ideas what this could be?

    Thanx

    yeah will do mate, first of all they said it would jus lose a bit of power but not too much.

    although mine didnt do the joltin bit while drivin, once every five times wen i started up the car or let it idle, it would cut out or some times go bk up to 750 revs wen the "engine with star" light came on and helped it !

    This is very similar to what happened to me a couple of weeks ago. Felt a jolt, tc light and em light came on.

    Pretty much guessed that it was the MAFF, replaced it, within a few minutes all was well again. These sensors are always blowing, so could be that, but I didnt have the cutting out thing.

    how much are these?
    The MAFF u mean? think they are about £110 or so from LMF. But u wanna b sure that's what it is though, u really need to get it on the tech2 at Vaux to find out, which unfortunately costs from around £20 to £58 + VAT at my local Vaux!!

    Are you running any other mods, like a viper induction etc, or an oiled aftermarket air filter? this has been known to blow the filament.
