What is the check engine light warning me of?

Hiya

The Engine Warning Light shows you that there is a potential fault with the Engine Management System. This could be a sensor or actuator issue, wiring or the Engine Control Modules itself.

You would need a diagnostic code read to establish what codes are present.

Ok thanks so it could just be something minor then? I've spent so much on this car already and it's not long went through its mot and cost me a fortune I want to get rid of it after lockdown etc is finished so was panicking I'm going to have to spend another fortune fixing it.

Hiya

It could be a £20 sensor or a £400 Engine Control Module. Until the diagnostic is completed it is impossible to say.
