Hello and Welcome to justanswer...

The EDC light is for the electronic fuel system / control systems - and it can be on for as simple a fault as a dirty fuel system filter..

A new filter - some diesel fuel additive - and the added bonus of a service to the engine can often clear this fault for you..

The other codes may be total red herrings - I would suggest as you have a note of them now - normal diagnostic procedure is to now clear them all out - do the fuel filter etc as above .. and the re run the vehicle...

Then, re do the FCR test - fault code read and see whats there then. If the codes were historic - items that have been dealt with previously , they will now be gone and therefore nothing to worry about..

Any current codes can then be assessed and dealt with...

I Sincerely XXXXX XXXXX have helped you - Please ask me if you need more help...


Kind Rgds, MIKE
