PTM or PCM faults would need to be dealt with by the dealer, could be the powertrain itself or the control module. To my knowledge its not easy nor cheap to fix I am afraid so bare this in mind, and brace yourself when you speak to the dealer.

Unfortunately I suspect that this is going to be your cars next stop.

lol, sounds like yours was as 'good' as mine.. I kind of thought how much of a shame it would be if an 18 wheeler ran straight over my bonnet...

hi guys found out why my powertrain light was on,the reason was the dpf wanted filling up and regenerating needed 1 and a half litres of eloys fluid,got this done for 100 pound including software resetting, :D

Good to hear its solved and for a not too rediculous price! strange reason to show the PTM / PCM light though... Shame they dont have an "uh oh your DPF is dudd" light... that would make life so much easier :)

i never took the car to main dealer.i went to a independent garage who had all the software to check it and not rip me off,car feels a lot quicker and smoother now.

That isnt bad at all, how many miles you done? just the 37.5? or are you closer to the 70k mark?
young fez
my car not done bad its on 81k when they topped the dpf fluid up.

Just got to be wary, if they didnt replace the DPF, that could go without warning, 1000 dealer job, or you could get it for around 500 if done independantly. if you have replaced the DPF already, you have nothing to worry about...
