Customer Question

Hi, my 2.2 diesel antara has just passed its first MOT. It has done 80k since new. The problem. The car with a spanner light is on along with the reduced engine power light and the engine fault light. The car is difficult to start when in this mode which is intermitant. I have tried a fuel system cleaner and a DPF cleaner and they have done nothing. When i stop the engine the fan remains on as if the DPF is cycling and it is not actually cycling. Stop start works ok.

Hello and Welcome - My name is ***** ***** Im happy to help / advise.This light you have is indicating there is an engine management / emissions fault... The only way forward is to have a plug in diagnostic test done... this will scan the Ecu computer for fault codes that will be there as that light is on -and the car is on Limp mode..Once retrieved, that will tell exactly where the fault lies / circuit and it can be sorted then from there.Let me know how you go..and / or let me know if you need anything further on this..~>>~~>>~ Meanwhile now at this point- Please do click on the "Exc / Ok rating" for me at this time.. "Thank you" in advance for that ... Note that you can get back to me anytime at all after doing the rating - it doesn't close you out -- Best Rgds, MIKE
