Re: Two Weeks of GT Fed Up Already
Sounds like you've narrowed down the problem ... looks like there is a short somewhere in your lighter (dur obviously) ... replace it. job done ...
... although I'm not sure how this could lead to a MCSF which is reported by the Engine ECU
... of course unless it is unrelated ... MCSF warnings clear after the 5th start of your car IIRC if the problem has gone ...
Lol, Sav has contacted me because he is a family friend but he wants to try and sort it himself before he spends money
which anyone would try.
It does appear to be a deeper issue because it may not be the lighters problem because we have had a 166 in where the boot was opening when you applied the handbrake and the locks were jumping and it was down to a faulty cable under the handbrake shorting the signal.
