Hello Mike


your details are correct i couldn't make vin no out properly before as it was hard to tell wether it was a u or an o so sorry for that .My car had its check at a local very used and highly recommended garage i have always had it serviced at main dealers but at my last service was less than happy ,anyhow the thing that is strange about the fault is after the light comes on it does lose some power but as soon as i switch off and restart the engine fault disappears even if i immediately restart it.When it went to the garage no light was visible so nothing showed up.
