"Motor Control System Failure" - any ideas ?

By they're fun these Alfa's aren't they.......

After recent problems with my GT JTD struggling to accelerate under
2K revs and returning only 30mpg it looks like the car itself now realises there is something wrong and has reported "Motor Control System Failure" on the dash. The car still drives the same but the engine light stays on permanently.

Did a quick google and it seems it could be a sensor failure although which one can be tricky to establish.

Anyone else come across this - what was the cause ?

Will ring Alfa today and take it in for it's monthly visit

Search the GT lounge mate (MCSF), it could be anything from Lambda to Battery.Hope you get it sorted.

I had a Motor Control System Failure when I got a lambda sensor problem. Actually, it was not the lambda but the catalytic.
