    Greetings good Folk
    I am new to motor caravanning but have been towing a caravan for ten years and it was becoming too stressfull.
    We have just bought a Swift Bolero 630 PR and have tried it out on a long weekend. Very pleased with the way it handled and happy with all the goodies inside the van.
    Just one thing, the injector failure warning light appeared on the dashboard and stayed on all the way home. I did not notice any drop off of power etc. I have booked the van in to be sorted out at the main Fiat dealer.
    I just wondered whether any of you people on this site had any experience of this happening.
    I should add that the van is not new but in lovely condition

    Dave:Smile:

    Hi Dave welcome to FUN
    The Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL LIGHT)
    Has illuminated because a fault has been detected, not necessarily an Injector fault
    It could be emissions related or even a misfire, have it cleard first as it may just have been a glitch
    we clear many such indicator lights only for them never to be seen again
    Somtimes the next trip out brings it back on
    This is then the time to have it investigated properly
    whoever scans it can tell you the codes present, your looking for a repeat ocourance before spending the beer tokens
    otherwise you may end up wasting money on a gremlin not a real fault
    most independent garges will scan and clear for you if your charge £25-£30 that will be half Fiats prices

    Geo - thanks for your comments. As the vehicle is under warranty it's not costing me anything . I was just curious.

    This has happened twice to me. (2 different vans). The first was a real fault, a stuck butterfly valve in the engine accompanied by severe loss of power.

    The second had no symptoms at all, in fact we had to drive quite a long way with it on. When we took it in, all the garage did was download a software update.- but its been fine for over a year since.

    Have fun in your new motohome!
