UK Car Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.My info is somewhat limited on your model here but I had seen no one else has responded and would like to see if I can help here.If at any time you feel that I cannot help with this please let me know.
Has anything been checked,tested or replaced to try and locate or repair this fault here at all?
Let me know so we can continue,thanks Pete.
With what you have described here this sounds like a possible fault with the engine coolant temp sensor itself.I have seen this temp sensor fail in the past before needing replaced to correct this fault here.It sends an incorrect temp signal to the computer which can cause the fault until the engine has warmed up for a few minutes or longer.
I would have this tested to see if for sure it is the cause and replaced if found to be at fault.This is best done by a dealer or repair center that works on this model here as they will have the correct testing tools for this but I do suspect this is the cause with what you have described.
