Hi guys ,

Seem to have a problem with my engine warning light and has been reset a couple of times by the great chaps in Williams Lotus Bristol . There is no problem with the engine but   'events' seem to make it light up ( recently I had a flat battery which made it illuminate ) . Williams, my nearest dealer  is a good 5 hr round trip for me so was just wondering if there was another way around this annoying occurrence ?

Hi guys , Cant THANK YOU enough . Did the 5 key trick and warning light removed ! Really unsure how Williams Bristol don't know about it as to be fair they never charged me for the reset ? 

Have you tried switching off and turning it on again? :P By which I mean a good lengthy disconnect of the battery and a full charge. 

As an aside, isn't there a Lotus Dealer in Cwmbran?

If the detected issue is resolved, the light will stop illuminating after 5 key on/key off cycles of it being gone. Alternatively, if you get an ODB2 dongle and an app like Torque you can clear the codes yourself.

Thanks so much men , advice greatly received . I will give the 5 key on / off and see how it goes . Will get back and let you know one way or the other 

Quite right Dave , not much in journey time between Williams and Cwmbran . Just i have got a decent relationship with Williams so worth the extra few minutes travel

Out of interest, do you need to turn the engine on 5 times it is it just 'electrics on' 5 times?
