cam check light

Hi Guys, I think I'm just getting paraniod, but I started my 147 today and when it was checking the active, a quick message appeard, it only flashed breifly but it look like it said CAM CHECK or some thing along those words then the OK light came on. I tried to look in the manual so if there is even just a warning light CAM CHECK, but couldn't find it, is there such a thing???

Re: cam check light

More likely CAN check? Either car is testing stuff via can lines or problem with them?

Re: cam check light

The message is "CAN Check" comes up most of the time. Its just the car running diagnostics on its own computers as far as I can tell.
FYI if I remember rightly CAN is for Car Area Network

So to answer your question. Nope, nothing to worry about.

My 147 does it about every 6 months. Even shows the CANCHECK message on the radio panel. Bit scared about at first but not bothered now - glad it's doing a check of some sort.
