    Question Warning light

    Hi, today a warning light came on (car with spanner through it) and when you get to 300 revs the car seems to loose power. Light is not on all the time tho
    Has anyone had any similar problems

    think u mean 3,000 revs

    it will be entering limp mode and therefore wont rev past that limit


    you need to do the pedal test to identify the fault

    do a search as its been covered numerous times


    what engine and year is it

    Ok so done the pedal test n the light flashes 10, 6, 10, 7 (0607) but that doesn't match any of the fault codes I have looked at.

    taken from another thread regarding P0607

    this is a knock sensor/internal ECU fault, it can be caused by oil running low and the engine internals rattling from low oil, this in turns causes the knock sensor to think the rattle is pre-ignition and can bring the EML light on. You should check oil level first, then replace knock sensor, if that does not cure it then it may well be internal ECU fault.
