EBOD (?) Light
Just got back from my 200 mile drive from buying the car, still loving it. Can't believe I did the distance on half a tank of fuel (thought it would drink it all up).
Everything was fine, I was grinning like a fool the whole journey even though it was snowing on the M1, until...
I got back to London, went round my brother's and took him for a drive. Obviously, ragging it a bit... and the engine light (the EBOD light I think it is) came on after about 5 minutes.
Drove her gently back to my brother's place and got the manual out. It said that the light was something to do with emissions, yet wasn't fatal and I could drive it no problem with it on (as long as I didn't "ask too much of the engine"), however, driving it for prolonged periods could damage the engine.
It also implied that the light may go off by itself, and in that case it would be fine.
So, I'm not overly stressed by it but my question is this: If the light is still on in the morning, what could it be, and do I do?
