Motor control system failure!!

Bah, my better half has just called me telling me that the Icon for Motor Control System Failure has come on and stays on! I wonder is driving it (want to get her home) going to damage the car.

I had this a while ago on mt '03 156 JTS and many others have too. Should be no problem driving it for a while, especially if there is no noticeable loss of power. Just ask her not to redline it on the way back!

The fix should take your dealer only a short time. It's most like to be the lambda cables which work loose They will either tighten or re-locate where they are less likely to vibrate loose again. Check that they reset the Infocentre properly. My dealer messed mine up and it required a new speedo head which feeds it. Let us know how you get on - good luck!
