    Question Emergency Stop & EML?

    Not really sure where to post this, but here goes...

    On my way to work tonight, I turned a corner to find a couple of my colleagues bearing down on me with their lights & sirens going, on the wrong side of the road.

    I slammed on the brakes (thank god for the big brake upgrade!) and stopped about an inch short of their front end. I'm pretty sure the ABS kicked in, and for some reason the car stalled - NOT my driving, before anyone suggests it!

    Restarted the car, and the EML has been on since.....any ideas?

    My guess would be that it's got something to do with the emergency brake assist. Presumably it uses a fair bit of power which could explain the stalling but I don't know why it would cause the EML to stay lit...

    Alternatively the harsh stopping might have caused a cable or plug to come loose.

    No idea what's going on, but I'm very interested to hear when you find out what the cause is.

    I think - after reading around - that the EML is probably nothing to do with that emergency stop. My engine's running hot again - about 90 instead of the usual 85 on the gauge, so I think its probably the spider box trying to cook the DPF. So, box off and think about a remap
