Hi hazem1984, I'm guessing that a little bit of water or moisture worked its way into a sensor while the car was being washed. It could just be a coincidence, but without taking it to a garage to get the fault codes read you won't know what caused it. If the light is now off, and has stayed off then the car is fine to drive. These cars have a reputation for having less than robust coils so if the fault reoccurs that'e the first place I'd start to look for a fault. DO let us know how you get on, Bob
