Flashing and constantly beeping or just constant? Flashing is more urgent but I think that is all you will know until the computer is plugged into it.

It is such a gut wrenching beep beep and every time I get it as the fuel is low it sends a shiver down my spine.

could be anything, you should buy an OBDII reader like I did. That way you can read the fault codes and clear them if they aren't serious :)

It's constant. Just had another look at it. Sounds like there's a leak in the exhaust. I'm having visions of a hole where a lambda sensor should be :-/

I've got AlfaDiag but neither the laptop it's installed on, nor the lead with me. Lol! Typical.

Don't think so, no.

If it's just the standard beep on startup and illumiated EML then it'll probably be a lambda fault code, either brought on by a leak (flexi joints?) or a failed sensor.

Thanks guys. It'll be looked at tomorrow.

Joe - are those gizmos any good?
Yeah surprisingly so, you can just read the fault code and clear it if need be.

I keep it just incase I get a MCSF on the move so I can pull over and read it to make sure it's not serious.

I used to get a 2nd idle learn fault code which would only go away when I cleared it with this.. Hasn't come back now after a month :)

Gut wrenching indeed. Especially disturbing is the 'Possible ice on road +3C' beep+message. Starting from a warm garage both at home and from work means the beep will appear twice a day, every day, a couple of minutes into every trip. I get a small heart attack every time in spite of knowing it's going to pop up...

Haven't found a way to turn it off either... :(

You can turn the buzzer off on the 156.

Looks like both sections of flexi joint have gone. It's going to be welded for now, but no idea what's involved in replacing it.

Not unusual. They form part of the front pipes which run from the manifolds to the cats under the car. Cheap, badly fitting replacements can be have for around 40-80 pounds. OE replacement pipes are significantly more expensive.

You could look at the EQ pipe options, have just the flexi sections replaced or just hope the repair you had done lasts.
