    Default Car and spanner after high revs

    Been doing this for a while but i never really took much notice as it never really affected me (it doesnt go into limp mode or anything).

    Basically when i go to max revs and floor it for a little while (say to overtake etc) afterwards ill get the car and spanner come on my dash a bit furthur down the road but it will not effect the ride or anything, and it will soon go after, say anywhere between 30secs-1minute later.

    I never really worried about it due to the manual saying that if the light comes, but only stays breifly, then it is nothing to worry about. But thought id ask you guys if you've any idea why this is happening? is it a problem to worry about?

    EDIT sorry i put this in wrong section >< lol, can a mod move it please to troubleshooting?

    Sounds like a fault that then clears...i.e. a sensor reports a problem, then reports that it's now fine. The code should still be stored though, so it's worth getting read.
