    Hi Jake,

    When the light comes on, how long does it stay on for?

    Does it seem to appear more at low revs rather than high revs?

    Have you had any issues starting the car?

    hi rym, when i start the car the light stays on, for the whole drive. and sometimes when i start the car it goes off as it should once the car has started and stays off for the length of the drive,
    so its either on or off, but more times its on. i hope this helps you??
    as starting the car is starts fine with no prob and drives fine.
    cheers
