Exclamation Supposed Injection System Failure.

Hi there,

I have a 56 reg Panda, and it has just been to Available Car for a cam belt exchange.

On the way home down the M1, I noticed an amber light flashing on the dashboard. According to my handbook, it is an injection system failure. Now, it was running perfectly fine before, so I was wondering if it could have anything to do with the new cam belt. Interestingly, the light only started flashing if I went over 65mph, and if I continued at that speed, it eventually turned off, however, if I accelerated, it started flashing again. As far as I could tell, the car sounded the same and there was no noticeable loss of power.

Has anybody experienced this?

Re: Supposed Injection System Failure.

Welcome to the forum, and good on you for checking the user manual first!

I think you mean the "check engine" light witch can be set off by a lot of things, not just what they say in the handbook. I got that light from a error from the acceleration pedal once..

Sadly I can't give you any other info on this, but it might not be the injectors!

Re: Supposed Injection System Failure.

Thanks for the reply!

If I continue having problems tomorrow, I will get my Mum's friend to have a look. I'm just hoping it is a loose connection or something. Available Car had to strip my car completely to fit the cam belt, so it would make sense if they didn't connect a cable properly.

If there are any more problems, I will post on here!

Re: Supposed Injection System Failure.

You need to get the fault codes read by a fiat dealer or suitably equipped garage. How come you took the car to Available Car to get the cambelt changed? I thought they were a car supermarket? Did you buy the car from them recently?

Re: Supposed Injection System Failure.

They were supposed to have installed a new one before I picked the car up, but they didn't, so we set a date and they did it for me. Within 30 days of buying, they will carry out any works necessary if anything goes wrong.
