    Went to start the motorhome up this morning and a warning light which is described as "injection System failure " came on but failed to go out.

    Took the vehicle for a gentle 20 mile run to warm the engine up and it seems
    totally normal.....light stayed on though.

    Any thoughts ?

    thanks

    Same with mine. It is the cold weather. Mine runs as normal and as the diesel warms a BIT THE WARNING LIGHT CLEARS ONCE ENGINE IS SWITCHED OFF AND LEFT FOR A WHILE. :thumb:

    Just went out and started her up again.....and it went out right away with all the other lights !

    Temperature has gone up quite a bit now but it was really cold earlier.............repeated this a few times and its going out all the time now.
    I think it might well be as simple as you say........which is good news.....I will mention
    it to the delaer when its in for a once over...many thanks

    There seems to be so many warning lights on modern vehicles.
    I sometimes have to drive panel vans to and from trade places and the dash is sometimes lit up like a xmas tree-- they still keep going though!
    Makes you wonder---do we need to know about something that we dont understand?
    Oil and water lights, that will do me!:thumb:

    You do get that light coming on at times with the Fiat's..
    My old one did it a few times, may be down to a bit of water in the diesel.
    The book just says go to main dealer but each time i had it on it went off after a small run.
