Engine Management light on Vauxhall Signum comes on, resets ok, but is coming on time and time again

Asked by Apr 29, 2013 at 03:43 AM about the 2006 Vauxhall Signum

Question type: Maintenance & repair

Hi - engine management light is being a pain on my 06 plate Signum (1.9 TDCi). It comes on, if I stop and turn on and and turn off it goes off - but it comes again about 5 miles later and puts me into limp mode - AA have been out but no error codes are showing on their computer devices - they have topeed my oil up, and have put a clip around air flow - is that really it?
