    Engine light and loss of power

    Wife has phoned me to tell me that on the way back from Rhyl last night the light with a bit like a bolt of lightning (her description!!) on it came on. The car also started to lose power. She pulled over and turned the engine off. On re-starting the car was fine, and has been today.
    Anyone got any ideas what maybe wrong? I know it's hard with the details provided but i thought someone else may have had a similar problem!!

    Sounds like the AFM - what car is it? the ecu goes into emergency mode (limp home mode) when it detects a sensor failure.
