Tips For Self Diagnosis

Engine Management Light

The engine warning light illuminates when the ignition is turned on and should go out as soon as the engine starts. If it stays on or flashes whilst driving, it could indicate a fault with the engine management system and you should have it checked at the earliest opportunity on a diagnostic computer.
