Hello Peter,

Can you get a scan done on the vehicle for codes?

The engine light has illuminated because of a current or intermittent electronic fault.


Customer: replied 9 months ago.
It is a fleet vehicle , so to get any thing done is a real run around . if i had a manual I could simply read what the light is supposed to denote . I decided to continue using the vehicle any way . then hey presto the light went off 120 km later . No dramas and the vehicle is A1. I looked at the drivers logs of the last few weeks and others have noted this light coming on & off Thus I assume a faulty electrical circuit which can be dealt with at next service in 3500 kms . Tks

Hello Peter,

If the light goes off, it would be an intermittent, and if no driving issues are evident, then it can possibly wait, just keep an eye on it for now.

Possibly only a small issue.

Kind regards
