    Default just had engine management done

    Wow it feels like i have a new car . The engine management light came on about two weeks ago but goes off after the engine has started so book it in to be looked at . Didnt feel anthing wrong with the car just thinking im use to it as it dont go like it use to . Anyway they plugged it in there machine and a few hours later get a call to pick it up . The bloke said they were some faults regarding starting the car and the engine management system and they have loaded new codes or something can anyone explain more or have had the same problem with the gsi ??? Drove it home and it is more like when i first brought it what a beast!!!

    Do you mean the wee spanner light on the dashboard display?.

    Had that happen to me a few weeks ago, happened 3 times in the space of a fortnight, but its not done it since.

    Didnt notice any drop off as far as performance goes, but then again I do have a CRD2 on it.

    Will need to get my finger out, my warranty is up in late November this year.

    So is having the diagnostic check and the subsequent software reset/update completely covered under warranty?. So no cost is incurred?.
