    Could be a fault like the glow plugs that it sees each time the car is started but goes when its running
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Is it not meant to come on with the ignition, and go out when you start?

    Or does it stay on for a bit before going out?

    The missus has a 55 reg CDTI SRi 150. Just been out to check hers. EML light stays on with ignition, and goes out on startup. Hooked up my code reader and nothing stored. Car starts and drives fine, and good economy too

    You shouldnt see it unless there is a stored fault.

    The car needs to go through a certain amount of 'driving cycles' before its sure the fault has been cleared.

    A driving cycle might include driving at a certain speed for a set time in each gear.

    Your better off getting the code cleared if you dont want to see it all the time. Either a Tech2 session or someone with another code reader like Op-com etc.


    Tony go back outside and just do clear codes anyway as pending codes are stored but sometimes dont show up on all code readers (I know Op-Com doest see pending codes)
