    Get the ECU error memory interrogated for fault codes. I've seen threads elsewhere on the site telling you how to do this without a Scan tool (I've not taken much notice as i've got one). Once the code is retrieved you should know what the issue is. As it's the MIL lamp that's on, any generic Scan tool will show the information i.e. any garage, doesn't have to be a main dealer.
