Error message


Having done 10,000 miles worry free motoring in my 1.9 JTD GT, I have now encountered my first problem of note. the car has started to display a yellow engine light with the 'MOTOR CONTROL SYSTEM FALIURE' message. Can anyone help; I am led to believe that this could be emissions based? Could the problem be a build up of soot on the Cat? I have today covered around 400 miles cruising on the motorway could this have prompted the error message?

Thank you in advance

From what I have read this could be a number of things and really needs to be be plugged in to a diagnostics computer to get fault codes.
