Not to worry , Just means the management system has come across a malfunction with in the fuel injection system .

Could be anything from a Glow plug ,temp sensor ,MAF sensor or a fuel pressure sensor.

All you need to do is get hooked up to a diagnostic scan tool and check for malfunction codes .

This will confirm why the light is flashing .

No good replacing parts on assumption as this would get very expensive so have your car hooked up and check for malfunction codes .

Hi Rosie .

This all depends on what is found when checking for codes ,it could be a simple wiring /connection problem or a sensor .

so Rosie hard to say until you have the codes .
