    Warning Light

    Hi All

    I picked up a 55 plate 1.9CDTi SRI XP yesterday, and drove 250 miles back from the Vx dealership without a hitch.

    Went out this morning for a spin, and about 30 mins in after 20 mins A road driving and 10 mins around town and a warning light comes on (Car with the spanner through it)

    So i pulled over and had a read of the manual, decided there was nothing i could really do, so headed home. Looked back at the dash and the light had gone, so i carried on home and after 2 mins the light was back on, stayed on until I got on the A road again, i was doing about 55, when the light goes off again.

    5 minuts later is back on, then another 10 mins and its off again. Then on again until I got home. So I turned her off, and the restarted and went round the blcok, and the light comes on about halfway round.

    Ive had a read through the forum, and most of the other posts mention a loss of power with the englie light, but mine was fine, had I not seen the light i wouldn't have known there was an issue.

    I'll obviously take it to the dealer, its got about 6 months warranty left, (Done 24k miles) Ay ideas what could have caused it? I would have thought any issues would have shown up on yesterdays 250 miles drive, not todays 10/15 mile one!

    Thanks in advance!

    Andy

    As with any EML problems, it is completely impossible to diagnose any faults without fault codes. With performance not being affected (limp home mode) it is most likely a currently dormant or unimportant problem, a problem nontheless. Get it to the dealer and make sure it gets completely sorted and anything relatively affected by it before the warranty runs out.
