Amber Warning Lights and Engine Management Faults
Most van owners will have seen the amber warning light (shown below), which shows there is a potential engine management fault, which the ECU is making the driver aware of.
The light displays when a variety of engine management faults arise, we discuss some of these in the section below.
Common Engine Management Faults
There are a wide variety of engine management faults, which could trigger the warning light to display, we summarise some of these below:
The DPF (diesel particulate filter) is a particularly sensitive “beast” of a component and is prone to blockage, particularly with inner-city, stop-start driving. If the DPF becomes blocked expect the engine management warning light to show and depending on the make/model of van expect driving to change to “limp home mode”
Ignition system faults
Loose fuel filler cap
Mass airflow faults

Imagine trying to sell a van to a buyer and when you do the road test the engine management warning light displays! That renders the van virtually unsaleable until you have resolved the issue. Given that the light could be displayed for many reasons, there will be diagnostics to pay for and an unknown bill ahead.
