Re: Engine control system failure

Check out the stickie tread on the forum. Most common fault is a low battery, that or there is actually something like a MAF/lamda gone wrong. Check voltage of your battery first though and give it a charge overnight. If thats fine then a trip to the dealers is in place for you to connect onto diagnsotics

Hello Jazply,

You need to go to any garage or friend with a diagnostic code reader to plug in and download the fault and hopefully clear it etc.

This happened to me a few months ago and my local garage that do my servicing cleared it in 5 minutes and did not even charge me.
