Enginer Light

Recommended Posts

hi guys,

driving around today my orange engine light came on....gave ford a quick ring and have it booked in early September. due to mileage they said it shouldn't be because of a service - due in December time. worries what this could be? as its 14 plate its going in under warranty...I understand it could be a number of things though!!

thanks

J

Can they not do it any sooner, even just to read the fault code?

I'd be concerned driving with the engine light on for 2 weeks...

the girl on the phone said its safe to drive on orange but if it turns red the stop driving - im a commercial agent so I do a lot of driving mostly motorway driving so pretty much all my miles are motorway. I am slightly worried that im trekking on the m25 and my car packs up...I do go abroad next Friday (28th) for a week. so it will give it some rest I guess.

They said they was fully booked until then...cant be that concerned...right?

I didn't know the light could go red, but I might be wrong on that one.

If it was me, I would want it in writing from the service department that it is safe to keep driving with the engine light on. Then if the worst happens, you are covered :)

No red light lol

Unless she is confused with the oil light,

Drive round for another two weeks so that it causes something major that unfortunately is not covered by our boggo standard warranty and costs you a pretty penny hehehehe
