The Engine Management light and what it means if comes on
Illuminates when the ignition is switched on.
It should extinguish as soon as the engine starts.
If it illuminates with the engine running, it indicates a malfunction with the engine management system. Have this checked as soon as possible. The car would need to be plugged into a diagnostics machine to check for engine faults.
With the light illuminated, the vehicle is still safe to drive as long as no other faults are apparent with the engine.
Have the vehicle checked by DD Autoserve as soon as possible to avoid any damage being caused. We use the latest Snap on Diagnostics machine to check faults.
