In Topic: Focus engine warning light?

04 August 2008 - 01:18 PM

Hi all!

I'm new on here... as i have jus bought (yesterday) a 2003 focus ST170. (66,630 miles)

Thismorning after starting up, the engine warning light came on, and hasn't turned off since then. The car had a service on monday (2 days ago) where no major work was done. (general wear and tear, as far as I am concerned)

Has anyone had this problem so close to a service? Could it have been something that was done on the car in the service that has caused this, or did they miss something major, or should I just put it down to bad luck and accept something has gone wrong at a bad time (just after purchase!)

I have rung round to ford garages, and the cheapest price to do a diagnostic check with a computer is 60 + VAT!!

If I can put it down to the original garages fault maybe they would see what was wrong for free? I bought the car from guildfor (over an hour away) so I can't 'pop' into the garage that did the work on monday too easily...

I appreciate any advice on the matter!!
