    Default Electronic Warning Light after Engine rebuild

    Just wondering if anyone can shed any light on the problem I have on my Signum 2.2 Direct 54 reg Petrol.
    Back in Nov 2010 the swirl flaps in my inlet manifold went into the engine and caused £1500 worth of damage. (Replaced Rocker Arms, Inlet valves, ball studs, timing chain and Head bolt and gasket sets)

    Since its been fixed we have not been able to afford to run the car and now sits on the drive. We have started it nearly every week but occasionally it's been every 2 weeks. Then on Tuesday the car would not start, initially we thought as it had not been started for a while we thought the battery was flat, so we jump started it and it ran fine. Then today had to jump start it again. After leaving it on the drive for a while the Electronic Warning light came on (Car with Vertical spanner) I read the manual and switched the car off and then started it up again to see if it disappeared, it did then came on again and the 10 seconds after the car went dead. Started it again and did the same.

    Has anyone got any ideas as to what it might be????
