it came on.... only for a second but i saw it shining out at roughly 70mph on the dual carriageway...

now sometimes in the morning when i leave my house its quite chuggy and neglectful to go but i thought this was just the engine not warmed up so i let it warm up the last few days for 2 mins or so and it ran fine.

i'm thinking it cud be the o2 sensor or something if its related to the chugging like Rob B had climbing hills nd stuff that said cud it have just been the really cold weather or an error it was the way it jus came onf or a second confused me

thanks

it's sometimes really chuggy and struggles first thing in the morning but its at the front of the house with no sun or warmth its always freezing cold and takes a while to warm up so i think that causes it first thing as after a minute running it goes....

Mines was the same sometimes but its not done it since it had a new ICV. Used to be fine once the car was warm and the EML didn't come on.
