  • Thats the thing, the warning message doesnt stay on for me to check the code. I will try again later to force the message but the last time it happened was two days ago. It has been really cold recently? not sure if this is the issue especially if the car is a diesel? – Miraha Feb 19 '16 at 9:11

  • If the check engine light went on the code stayed in the ECU for future reading even if the light went off afterwards. Do read it. – I have no idea what I'm doing Feb 19 '16 at 12:51
  • @IhavenoideawhatI'mdoing the check engine light on never came on. just the warning came on the dash (little screen) with the engine malfunction warning icon image – Miraha Feb 19 '16 at 13:07
