    Default Engine Management Light

    Went to start car up and after a few seconds it conked out and the engine management light came on. I switched ignition off and back on and it was fine.

    Is this anything to worry about?

    If it doesn't come back on again, then no - nothing to worry about.

    From the manual....

    Control indicator for engine electronics (within tachometer display dial)

    If it lights up when the engine is running, there is a fault in engine or transmission electronics. The electronic system switches to an emergency running programme. Fuel consumption may be increased and the driveability of the vehicle may be impaired.
    In some cases the fault can be eliminated by switching the engine off and back on again. If the control indicator lights up again when the engine is running, consult a workshop to have the cause of the fault remedied. We recommend a Vauxhall Authorised Repairer.

    If it lights up briefly and then goes out again this is of no significance.

    Flashing with the ignition switched on indicates a fault in the immobiliser system. The engine cannot be started

    Well when i was driving home, through Glasgow from work, the light came on. I stopped off at the garage i bought the car from - and this was TWO DAYS before my warranty was up. I went in and spoke to the salesman who sold me the car and he said bring the car in the next day. Anyway when I climbed into car to start it, the light went out. Hope it never comes on again, but I f the car doesn't limp you should be ok.
