    Default EML flashing when starting but not starting (Vec-B)!

    Guy's, first time this has happened to me this morning.

    Got in the car, when to start her up and the engine was turning but not firing up and at the same time the EML was flashing away at me.

    Got worried and though is all this about, as it sounded as though it was immobilized and the light was flashing as though the Transponder chip was missing.

    Anyway, took the key out and tried to start her up again and she fired straight up and has been right as rain since!

    Any idea's what this could have been or could be.....is this a taster of a problem upcoming.

    Any help and tips welcome.
    Oh, and the car is a 2001/51 2.2 SRI DTI.


    Thanks, G.


    Bye bye Vec B

    Had this on our last Vec C 2.0DTi, only the engine wasn't turning at all. Did it once and never again...
