With new sensor fitted the engine light on instrument panel still remains on even after I erase it


Jeff

the light is just a driver warning and does not mean anything specific. What fault code is being stored in the car's computer?

 

Customer: replied 3 years ago.


The warning light should go out after engine starts if no faults
