    stayed on since I turned engine over quickly the other morning. After about 7 seconds car kicked in but totally my fault for being inpatient. Now the light is on constantly.

    Have you tried the peddle test? put key in ignition, press brake and accelerator at the same time. turn ignition on (not starting the engine) keep pedals pressed and watch the EML flash, count the flashes to give you your codes

    Emissions to high.. Mine started doing it intermittently then stayed on. Plunger in egr was stuck stripped it all down cleaned and greased. Put light out using elm327 and torque pro and it has not been on since.

    Mines a 1.9CDTI
