Warning light

Hi, just joined having bought a 2000 JTD ELX & hoping for some help. Car came without handbook & a warning light has come on - it's at approx 7o'clock on dashboard & right next to cedntre circle of speedo wheel. Best description is it looks a little like a red torch being shone (totally new symbol to me) Also message Error 255 is showing. If anyone can tell me what either or both mean, and or if they're related, i'd be very grateful. Also, any ideas on where to get a handbook? Thanks in anticipation.

Re: Warning light

Ive had a quick look in both the manual and at the car, but am unable ti identify which light you are talking about.
There are two obvious ones that could be construed as torches, the main beam light blue and the side/dipped beam in green perhaps one of these lights red if there is a bulb failure?? Just a possibility though, not based on anything Ive read!
Does this pic help identify your light?

There are at least 2 different instrument clusters, yours may be different to this one.

PS>.There are a few handbooks on ebay.

Re: Warning light

Many thanks for looking. I've got a 2000 model and the instrument panel has only one dial & the light i'm looking at isn't on your picture. I've put a bid onto ebay so hopefully i can resolve the problem. The light coming on appears to be coupled to a loss of power so i'm wondering if it's linked to the turbo? Hey ho.

Re: Warning light

you could be real cheeky and message the seller on ebay to look it up for you in his book seeing as though you have already bidded

Re: Warning light

I think you will find the symbol your refarring to is the injectors, ive got the 2000 model book in front of me and its in between the glow plug symbol and code light.
I would have posted earlier but i could not find it.

Re: Warning light

Thanks for all the help 7 advice I've just bought a handbook on Ebay so i should be able to say for certain. Injectors sounds very believable as the power drops hugely when the warning light comes on

Re: Warning light

Cheers Gary, that's the one I gather it's the injectors. I bought the car just over a week ago - don't know how long it had been standing. Light came on after approx 50 miles. Went on and off the next day and now I haven't seen it for a week & the car is pulling fine now. I'm hoping it was just one of those things & now it's back in use it running properly

Re: Warning light

Put some injector cleaner in your tank unless your really tight then use parrafin and then give it a good old thrash allways works wonders.
