Hi there good morning to you a sorry for the delayed responsesOk did the engine managment light come on or did it state engine systems fault on the dash display Kind regards ***** ***** Brian
Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Management light is staying on now and engine malfunction comes on but goes off when car is stopped and restarted
Expert:  Gallagher99 replied 9 months ago.
Hi that thanks and sorry for the delayed response Ok the fault isn't anything to do with voltage to the cluster This issue is caused by an engine management fault Most commonly a DPF issue or a fuel vapouriser issue You need to retrieve the live /current fault code to clarify exactly what code is logged However some small code readers will not pick up certain manufacturers fault codes But with the kuga they don't suffer from much regarding engine management faults apart from blocked fuel vapourisers and DPF concerns If you need anymore help or advice on issue please let me know If you have been completely satisfied with my answer /advice PLEASE RATE MY ANSWER Kind regards ***** ***** and have a nice dayWe can continue on this same post even after ratingand going forward if required Brian
Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Had a new fuel vapouriser fitted in January after the engine malfunction light came on and stayed on Must be the DPF filter
Expert:  Gallagher99 replied 9 months ago.
Hi there thanks and Iam very sorry for the delayed response If a new vapouriser was fitted in January the chances of a restricted DPF are high as the vapouriser assists the DPF regeneration process Ideally a fault code check will clarify this If you need anymore help or advice on this issue please let me know If you are Completely satisfied with my answer /advice PLEASE RATE MY ANSWER Kind regards ***** ***** and have a nice evening Brian
