Blown bulb, loss of power and Motor Cosntol System Failure
Had a peculiar situation on Friday.
Was driving in rain with headlights on and at one point was sitting behind traffic doing 40mph for long time and then pulled out to take over and when started acceleration suddenly check engine light went on, motor control system failure message appeared and engine went into limp mode (with not going over 2rpm really).
So I restarted engine when had a chance and despite all messages engine started to work fine, pulling normally and delivering all the power as usual.
Anyway, in the evening I found that the dimmed beam bulb was blown, replaced it and by the magic those lights and messaged disappeared.
Strange, but is it normal? Should I try and 'hunt' for that message and what was behind it? Or it is 'normal' sometimes to have it when the bulb is blown?
One must still have chaos in oneself to be able to give birth to a dancing star - it's a satanic drug thing, you wouldn't understand...
