    Default Help advice needed

    Hi All,
    The veccy cdti 150 is acting a bit strange.
    Yesterday I was on the motorway for about 30 miles and noticed the oil light on. i was on cruise control doing 80 mph
    I pulled over turned off the car, checked oil everything ok started the car , no oil light and drove off. then i noticed the heating pin at 88-89 and stayed there for the remaining 70 miles, the cruise control stopped working as well.
    today all seemed fine. the timing belt and pump was changed 10k ago.
    I could do with a bit of help as am worried.
    thanks in advance.

    Was it the oil level light (orange) or oil pressure (red), cruise control could just be a fluke failure, either clutch switch or stalk (common fault).

    After you turned the engine off and on again did you press the brake pedal before trying the cruise control?

    The system needs to know the brake switch works
