Hi all

Can anyone help with information as to why the red injector light is coming on when the engine temp hits 90, then the temperature gets higher.

Any help is appreciated !!

Thank you :)

First of all, it is a general engine management warning light, it can mean almost anything and there is no point guessing.
A fault will have been logged, so you need it connected to diags to get a clue as to the reason.

However... how high is the temperature getting?

I think it is an engine management light rather than an injector light. Either way, it is suggesting some sort of fault, so the best course of action (before you spend uneccessary money on it) is to get Alfadiag on it to see what codes it throws up.

How much higher is the temperature getting? The thermostatate should open at about 75-80 and when it reaches 90 + degrees the fan on the rad should kick in. So it could mean the thermostate is faulty or a blown fuse on the fan. Run the engine and wait and see if the fan is coming on. It could be a blown fuse. If all is working, get it diagonosed.

Hi

Thanks for reply.

The temp gauge goes way up past 90 and gets hotter than normal.

I will do as you say and run until the fan comes on, would this account for the injector ight coming on then?? also the light stays on even when engine is stone cold now??

Thanks

Well if the light is now permanently on and it is getting hotter than normal, then you definitely need to get Alfadiag on to it.

Hopefully someone in Hampshire with the software might offer to help you out - failing that take it to a decent indie or one of the Milano dealerships.

Yours is a phase 2 model (colour coordinated side skirts, plastic not metal cam cover etc.), right?
