    if so, it's the engine management (ECU) light.

    the ECU has detected a fault, if its still running OK then its a temporary fault, and has stored it for future diagnostic.

    you need a garage with diagnostic equipment to find the fault.

    According to the peugeot handbook its the regerneration of the particale emmisions filter. It recommends leaving the engine running to regenerate the filter. It occurrs when driving at low speeds or in slow moving traffic. It recommends driving above 40mph to clear the filter. In other words give it a good fast run down the motorway. Hope this helps.::bigsmile:

    sounds like the new Volvo

    It sounds like the new Volvo.. great on petrol consumption, but you have to do lots of miles to blow out the cobwebs.
