Onsite Car & Van ECU Diagnostics
If your ECU warning indicator lights up on your dashboard, your car will more than likely enter ‘limp mode’ which is designed to keep the engine running so you can get home or better still, to your local garage for inspection.
Like most modern computers, sometimes an error occurs and they need to be reset. If your ECU light comes on, pull your vehicle over to the next available safe place and turn off your engine and remove your key from the ignition.
Wait 60 seconds then restart your engine and see if the ECU indicator is still lit or not. More often than not the light will come back on immediately or at some-stage soon, but it has been known that sometimes this cures the fault. We still recommend that you bring your car to us so we can see what went wrong.
