Country: United KingdomMake: FordModel: focus tdci sportYear: 2004Engine: tdci 1.8
Hello and Welcome to justanswer...
How is the engine running otherwise ? Why was the filter changed ?
car is going good just due a service
Ok thats fine... have you driven it any real distance since the filter change / light coming on?
nt realy a bout 2/3 mile
Ok.. .in that case, it could just have flicked the light on because of the startng procedure - bleeding the system - this can / does happen.. So.. I suggest drive the vehilce -give it a good drive for a good few miles - 4-5..or so and it should go off when it sees there is no real fault. IF it doesn't - you can try disconnecting the car battery - that will kill the Ecu memory - and the light will go out. IF it comes back on -then the Ecu is truly seeng a fault somewhere - at that point, you would have to have a local garage do a fault code read for you to find out exactly why / what that is.
the car was air locked for a we bit wud that explain it
Yes -its common that on these - they can be a real pain to bleed sometimes...so as I say, its likley to have logged that - It should clear after a good drive cycle when it sees no faults - or kill the memory as above. If you do disconnect the battery - you will need your radio code - so be sure you have that as well.
