Mark :

Hello. My name is Mark and I will be assisting you today.

Mark :

Does this only happen when the engine is started from cold or can it also happen after the engine has been warmed up?

JACUSTOMER-xfd6enid- :

Car running normally with no indication of overheating or oil pressure problem. Starting ok has only happened 3 times over last 2 months and driving whilst in heavy rain. Drove 65 miles yesterday to meeting, 1st time was after 20 mins then went off next time was within 15 mins but stayed on for 10 minutes. Engine was running ok & responsive, could this just be a wet sensor?

Mark :

That is a possibility. Especially if it only happens during rain.
