    Default 'Exhaust' light on!

    Car went into 'limp mode' and wouldn't let me go above 40mph. Got it home and opened the bonnet. I'm aware of the 3rd Injector problem so had a look. It needs changed to the after-mod type.

    Now heres the problem...

    The 'Exhaust Fault' (engine outline) lamp came on. After wiggling the 3rd injector wire the car now runs fine BUT the Engine Fault light stayed on.

    Am i right in thinking that because of the 3rd Inj fault the car would of been overun by diesel causing a problem with the Cat?

    Only travelled about 10miles in limp mode.

    If so, how do i get it 'normal'? Would a good blast on a straight road help?

    Any ideas guys? Only had the car 9 days!!

    Cheers in advance!!

    Default

    If the car is running fine again the emissions light will go out after a certain number of cycles of the ignition but you need to get the fault codes read to see what has caused the problem in the first place
