Yellow engine warning light?

So, started car up today, light comes on and stays on?
Hmm.

Car drives spot on, revs and sounds just as normal?

Any ideas?!?! It's the 3.0 V6 btw.

Re: Yellow engine warning light?

If I remember correctly it's summat to do with the emissions.

Not had that one before

I'd personally get it to someone with a diagnostic lap top as there are a few possible causes and the Diagnostic will tell exactly which bits gone wrong.

Not much help but if it is an emmission failure it will fail an MOT

Hello needs to go on the examiner/orlike to find out which sensor the ecu has pick up as an error, could be any one off a few sensors.
