156 TS Engine management warning light

The engine management warning light is on any ideas what's causing it and should I be worried? I had a zafira with the same problem and everytime I took it for diognostics they reset it but kept coming back on turns out the engine was burning oil and needed a costly rebuild so got scrapped just wondering if my 156 is heading for the big scrap yard in the sky anyone had the same problem or know what might be the cause please

You need it on diagnostics to get the error code read.
It could be as simple as a dodgy spark plug but without the code.............

You can do it yourself. Buy a kkl cable from ebay and download the free version of Multi Ecu Scan then post the result on here

Doing it yourself will save you pounds. Each time you het it checked at a garage they will charge about 30 so the investment in the cables and even a fully licensed copy of MES pays for itself quickly.
