JA: Just to clarify, can you tell me which light it is? And does it blink first, then stay on steady?

JA: Are you fixing your Fabia yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: no for the first Q and nothing much for the second part
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: cant think of anything.Like I said the car runs lovely but not very handy for getting rid of the car

Dear customer, thank you for choosing Justanswer. My name is***** would like to help you.

Has the error memory already been read out?

If not, you should have it done.

The error code says more. In general, one can only say that the preheating lamp which lights up while driving or flashes indicates a problem with the exhaust aftertreatment (e.g. O2 sensor, or EGR valve).

As long as the car is running normally this is not a problem, but before the MOT the problem should be solved.

You are also welcome to report the error code once it has been read, we will then narrow down the problem together.
