    Hi Chaps,

    My engine manage light/check engine light came on Sunday, after a "spirited" drive on Saturday. But today the light is gone? I understand that the ECU has picked up an error somewhere, even if it is intermittent, the light will remain.

    When the ignition is switched on the light comes on as normal, with the parking brake and battery.

    So where has it gone?

    Get it scanned 1st mate as we could speculate to the end of days what it is, I'm trying to rack my brains as I've heard this before but not sure if it as 8L or 8P

    HI, thanks for asking, Scott123 scanned the car for me and it came up with with two intermittent fault codes.

    I do not know why the lights goes off periodically but comes back.........

    2 Faults Found:
    17705 - Pressure Drop between Turbo and Throttle Valve (check D.V.!)
    P1297 - 35-10 - - - Intermittent
    17522 - Oxygen (Lambda) Sensor; B1 S2: Internal Resistance too High
    P1114 - 35-10 - - - Intermittent
    Readiness: 0000 0000
