Re: help injection system malfunction light

it could be loads of things, the light comes on when some part of the engine is detected operating outside of its design parameters, eg engine running too rich, too hot, misfire etc. The car has a on board diagnostic OBD so a garage can plug it in to their analyser and the fault code should come up, many garages can do it as its Bosch system, so its pretty standard across makes.

Re: help injection system malfunction light

There are so many sensors/reasons that cause the light to come on you really need to get it plugged in and diagnosed as Purple says. 20 quid to get it plugged in at an independant place is roughly what I'd expect to pay. Just get the error code/message and then you'll know which part is causing the light to come on.
