Mark :

Hello. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be assisting you today.

Mark :

What has happened is the engine management system has picked up a slight fault. This is why the light came on. It is an intermittent fault which is why switching off and on has reset the system.

Mark :

You now need to have a suitable scan tool connect to the vehicle to read what code was stored.

Mark :

Once the code is identified then finding the cause of the fault can be traced.

Mark :

Do you have a connection problem?

Mark :

You seem to keep stepping in and out of chat.

Mark :

Why is this poor service?

JACUSTOMER-zzyrbis2- :

I could work that out my self. I was hoping u could tell me What the prob was. Ok never mind.

Mark :

There are over 100 fault codes and any one of them could produce the symptoms you describe.

Mark :

I would rather tell you the truth than tell you one specific cause for your fault.

Mark :

No one can tell you the cause. You need to scan the system to see what code has been stored.

Mark :

If you thought this was the case, why ask the question?

Mark :

You could have been told a 100 valid answers why this would occur.

JACUSTOMER-zzyrbis2- :

I asked the question at about 7pm and you replied at 11.30 When I was in bed asleep.and u only told me what I already new. So Sorry but not satisfied.end of.
