    If car is running ok i would assume after a certain amount of starts it will go out or you could take battery off for around an hour or so and reset ecu

    AA once told me my clutch was shot, he was quite adamant that it was definately the clutch, he recovered my car to my home. I had another mechanic look at it just to make sure and it turns out it was just a drive flange that had gone.

    dont get me wrong the AA have dug me outta the poop a few times but their diagnosis aren't always 100%
