MOT today and.............
I've got my car booked in for an MOT today, drove 2 miles and the engine warning light comes on with "Motor control system failure" shouting at me?
the last month i have changed how i drive my car from a daily 40mile roundtrip to work to a 12mile roundtrip instead.
so as i now do v little mileage and with the cold weather,hrw,radio and A/c on i guess i don't charge the battery as much?
could a week battery cause this light and warning to come on?
over x mass as i hardly used the car, i tried to start it and it wouldn't turn over but i disconnected the battery and trickle charged it and it started ok. ( MCSF light didn't came on then ? ). then did a 40mile trip to the new forrest and was fine.
the MOT man said that in may/April any warninglight like airbag on and said MCSF light is a Failure. you haver been warned.
