    Engine Management Light

    Hey Guys,

    Started the car, reversed out the driveway and noticed the EM light was still on. Drove off, and it went off after a little while...

    Don't want to go to vaux to get the fault code read, but should I worry??

    Used to happen all the time on my housemate's old Corsa. I wouldn't worry about it.

    It did it again last night.
    Got home, parked the car for about 45 minutes, then went out.
    Light was on till I got to my GF's and turned the car off. (around 10 mins)

    No loss of power, no irratic idling, no stuttering.

    Any idea what it could be?
    Is there a way for me to get the fault code??

    Some cars allow for you to short pins 5 & 6 on diagnostic port which flashes the codes out via the EM light...

    Can Use this site provided for more information....http://www.topbuzz.co.uk/
