Ive got a Range Rover sport and the engine management light

This answer was rated:

Hi, Ive got a Range Rover sport and the engine management light has come on ?
JA: Just to clarify, what are the exact lights you're talking about?
Customer: Its the actual light which should go out when the engine is running
JA: What year is your Range Rover?
Customer: 2014
JA: Are you fixing your Range Rover yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Its really odd? I only bought it last week - It had a air con recharge and then I drove it 200 miles home. It had been stood for a couple of months on the forecourt, now there is nothing wrong with the drive of the car, its just that the light sometimes comes on and then other times, its fine. Ive tried some Diesel engine cleaner ?
JA: Anything else you want the Mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: no

Hi


Dear customer, i apology for my delay. If you do not have failures in your vehicle you do not have to worry, let me explain, the engine management light comes on when one of the sensors is malfunctioning or the operating range values ​​that the computer is receiving are out of the normal ones, for this reason it activates the light to warn you to drive with caution because it can experience failures according to what the computer is receiving.

If you do not have apparent failures i insist that you do not have to worry, having stopped your range rover for a while could simply cause an error code on your vehicle's computer, what you should do is with a diagnostic equipment reset the error codes and in this way erase the codes. This will eliminate the engine management light.
I must emphasize that the diagnostic equipment must have Range Rover software, you do not necessarily have to go to a dealership, since many garagess have multi-brand diagnostic equipment with the right software for your model.

Have you understood me dear customer?
