engine light

thanks for the welcome. You wouldnt be able to point me in the right direction for some advice?.... Basically i've had the car for about a month and when i try and floor it the yellow engine light comes on and the car jerks almost as if the turbo is having a heart attack then it kicks in and goes like a bullet. The light stays on then goes off after i've either reset the beast (battery disconnect) and drive normally without engaging the turbo but comes on again when i floor it?

Re: Welcome MYSTITALLY0304 joins our Forums...

The yellow engine light is a CEL "CHECK ENGINE LIGHT" basicaly it will light whenever a problem is detected. I Suggest you get the CEL checked for a fault/error code.


ECU Data Fault Codes
